Sadly, many organic chemistry texts treat the subject matter too lightly. While the student may have an easier time with a simplified text, that same student will have a tough time in more advanced classes. This text has been the standard for all of my professors and now that I will go into teaching, this will be my standard as well. It's a great text. If you are studying organic chemistry and need to take more than a basic class, read this bookWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
