This text is a valuable and well-written tool for any person that may have little familiarity with organic chemistry but is interested in learning. Text is accompanied by diagrams and pictures that provide visual aid to help in understanding. Throughout the chapters, sample questions are included along with descriptive answers that help understand the solution's process. Each chapter has questions pertaining to the material covered that are objective as well as questions that may be meaningful in a real-life context. Solutions to problems only exist in the text for odd-numbered questions. Even-numbered questions will require the solution manual.

The textbook is OK. My instructor disagrees with it quite often, so it's not a bible for the class I'm taking, which is kind of a bummer. But it's an OK chem textbook.

The real problem with it is WileyPlus, which is crap. I got a used textbook, so it didn't come with a WileyPlus code, so I had to buy it separately. It was $95. (!!) It gives me access to an electronic version of the textbook and homework problems. The homework in there is totally impossible--drawing molecules with their program is guaranteed to frustrate me, and I spend way more time trying to learn the stupid thing than actually learning organic chemistry. Also, the textbook is in frames (Frames!), so I cannot read it on my iPad because half of the text is off in outer space. WileyPlus is just plain awful.

So, before buying a used copy of the textbook, find out if your instructor is going to require WileyPlus and then figure out which is more economical because a bunch of people in my class ended up spending way more than they needed to when they got the used book and then had to buy the WileyPlus separately.

There are a lots pictures in the book, and explain theories very well. However, solutions for problems are not in this book, have to buy seperately.

I bought this book second hand. It arrived in excellent condition and very quickly. It is the best chemistry text that I have seen. I am using it as a general organic chemistry to gain background understanding for Botany.It is very well set out and easy to follow even without much of a background in general chemistry.I would recomend this book to any one who wants to enter the world of organic chemistry from the ground up.Most excellent !

There's a lot of writing which is harder for me to understand when we're supposed to be learning how to do equations and reactions-- it gets a little wordy. I guess the book is just like any other chem book.

Spent a lot of hours inside this book. Not bad, does the job and describes the concepts rather well. Good chem book.
