Does anybody have any tricks or a cheat sheet for naming compounds?

There's a video by Mr.Causey called Naming compounds in Chemistry and he goes over roots and has cheat sheets you can use to remember what he teaches in the videos. It's old but it gets the job done.

There is also a list of common ligand names, both with neutral and negative charge that are useful when trying to identify a common ligand. It's not much but I used it a bit on the homework and it did help. I would say the only real trick is to just do a bunch of examples and get used to the different rules for naming.

I recommend making flashcards and referencing the sheet Dr.Lavelle has posted on the class website.
