This book is an excellent ADDITIONAL resource to taking and getting an A in Organic Chemistry. It is really only relevant to Organic Chem I however. It provides tips on when to take Orgo and tips for studying and habits to avoid and to take advantage of. It covers basics that you will need to memorize no matter what and each tip is broken down based on its difficulty. Since every Orgo class is taught in different ways, it would be hard to go chronologically. Rather this book sort of just builds upon what you might have already done. So you'll have to search for whatever topic you want to look for. Make no mistake, this is a supplement to a real class. This could be used for review as well, but without having the basic knowledge down, many of these concepts will remain foreign to you.

As an Organic Chemistry tutor for the past 7 years, I found this book to be extremely deficient with the content that it provides students to "ace Organic Chemistry." The reactions are incomplete, the explanations are poor, and I don't feel that it hits on the important concepts that a student taking Organic Chemistry should know. You should spend your money elsewhere.

From the "Watch out for the flunking professor" section, this author really gives you the wrong outlook and attitude about this course, and (help me) science courses in general. So sad that people treat beautiful sciences courses this way. I'm an Organic prof and care deeply for my students and put a ton of time into teaching, aligning standards, office hours and discussion sections. Yes there is a high dropout rate, as there are in all science courses, but blaming the prof all the way? Please. Seems a bit too simple. You need to learn this topic at a deep level which takes time and grit.
Save your money on this text and buy Workbook for Organic Chemistry, Jenkins. 6ed and Dave Klein's Organic as a Second Language book. You'll be fine. Don't play into the hype. Good luck and good thinking.

This book is amazing. I'm studying for MCAT and I need some clarification on some areas. Plus, I don't need details like the textbook. I can't believe this book is this helpful. It's true, it's very simple and not too detailed, and that exactly why this book is fantastic. DON'T BUY THIS BOOK IF YOU NO CLUE ABOUT ORGANIC. You need to know some basics, and if you do, this book is a MAGIC. It simplifies all those complicated organic non-senses for you so you can solve problems and understand the topics. You have no idea how excited I am right now! I got this book this morning and I'm already almost done studying it. It's so easy to follow the text and apply it on problems and questions. THESE ARE MOSTLY REAL TRICKS THAT YOU NEVER WILL FIGURE THEM OUT IF YOU ARE NOT AN ORGANIC TEACHER/TUTOR. I'm extremely satisfied with my purchase. Thank you

A good general comprehensive review of the subject. I would recommend as a resource guide to go with the textbook.

I normally avoid getting too may supplements, but in this case it is worth it. Org. chem. can be tough. I think this book has given me a heads up before I take my org. chem. class I like how the book gives you advice on picking classes, and what to avoid. The difficulty ratings for each subject are helpful, and the information is presented in a easy it understand way.
