    This book SAVED my GPA at Rutgers!!

    I originally took organic chemistry relying solely on the textbook, and like most other students, failed miserably. I ended up retaking the course and thought I'd give this book a shot. It explains all the mechanisms and reactions in full detail in PLAIN AND EASY TO UNDERSTAND English. This book saved my GPA as the second time around I got an A in the course. AN A IN ORGANIC CHEMISTRY! Fortunately Rutgers will replace my original F so there you have it, a GPA and LIFE saver. Thank you so much Dummies Books and Barnes and Nobles for your great prices and book availability. I recommend it to all those unfortunate enough to have to take the course!

    Works Well While Taking Organic Chemistry

    Although most people are struggling to find enough time for study during a school semester, this book is worth taking the time to read with your organic chemistry text. There is so much information in the text that it is refreshing to have a resource to assist in navigating which areas are more important than perhaps other. One cannot study everything no matter how much time is available and this resource helps to map the way.

    As I got closer to my prereqs to be finished, I came upoon the class I feared the most.... Organic Chemistry!!!! Then my prayers were answered when a friend and classmate suggested this superb book!!! It makes the topics soooooooo much more simple than it is taught through powerpoint lectures. I loved it and did not buy the old fashioned $200 Organic Chemistry book suggested. This is all I needed!!!! I am very fortunate for this and looking forward to more "Dummies" series.... They now have a second edition of this book too!!! Do the right thing, don't struggle and be confused, get this book!!!!!!
