Respected sir,

This course is very great and is helpful not only for students but also for all chemistry professors. This course is the best platform for all organic chemistry learners. The language is very easy. So that, each and every student can understand all the concepts easily. Discussion forum is also a best platform for us to ask any query about any concept.

Thank you very much sir for excellent teaching, clearing every concept in organic chemistry from basic and giving assignments to us. Keep it up sir.

Also,thanks to SWAYAM for conducting such type of course for all chemistry learners.
