    Highly Recommended

    As a student who is pursuing masters degree in chemistry, Ive gone through so many organic chemistry text books and I have to say that this one is so far the best I've ever had. Its very easy to understand unlike many other textbooks and I love how the concepts are explained step by step. I highly recommend this text book !!!
