    A Useful Workbook

    This is a useful workbook for practicing Organic Chemistry problems. The author also wrote Organic Chemistry I for Dummies and the two books complement each other without duplication. I used this workbook to refresh my organic chemistry knowledge before teaching a class. It is concise, easy to understand and has useful information. I'm not sure it would be as helpful without the companion book and the potential buyer should realize it covers only first semester organic. A second semester book and workbook are sorely needed. (Someone get busy and do it.)
