    Excellent Classic Organic Text

    Great book that professors can adapt for classes for students aspiring to grad school, or for a more basic class. I used this as an undergrad before deciding to get my PhD. I tutored for many years and have seen professors at various colleges adapt the text to the level they want to teach at. Great descriptive, real life applications throughout the book as expanded assides.

    A Waste

    This book was a great dissapointment. The main problem being that it packs way too much information in with out doing a good job of explaining or simplifying the material, which by the way should be the main aim of any text book. Organic Chemistry is usually a dull and difficult subject and this book does a good job of improving this negative reputation. The book seems to have been written for a professor or a graduate student as opposed to a student taking the course for the first time. My advice is to study from another book or convince your professor to change to another text.
