Please edit the question to limit it to a specific problem with enough detail to identify an adequate answer. Avoid asking multiple distinct questions at once. See the How to Ask page for help clarifying this question. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.
- Recognize functional groups.
- Be aware what nucleophiles and electrophiles are.
- Apply 2 on 1.
Yes, there's more to it, and you still have to memorize name reactions, but the upper will definitely make your life a lot easier.
