    How are monolithic ceramic capacitors different from normal ceramic
    capacitors ? What is recommended out of the two for bypass capacitors ?

    Monolithic multilayer ceramics are smaller than the equivalent ceramic disc.
    They are both good for bypassing.

    A monolithis is built up of multiple layers of ceramic and metal, and fired
    after the pile is built up, so you get thinner dielectric layers, and so
    more capacitance in the smaller package. "Ordinary" ceramics just have the
    one ceramic piece with metal plated onto either side.

    Hope This Helps!
