I bought this for an organic chemistry course. From looking at other students' models, this is the best set. They all had the same lame set from the bookstore.

The users manual that comes with this is full color and about 50 pages (50 small pages that is, one page measures about 4 x 8) and is a mini chemistry course in itself. It was very helpful in showing you how to model all the different molecules you will encouter in a junior level org chem course.

The set is small, yet it is engineered in such a way that you have more options than the other sets I encountered. The set comes in a hard plastic case in which all the pieces snap into place (the bookstore version sold it to you in a plastic bag!) thus saving you time when you are ready to assemble.

When modeling some molecules, there is a lot of strain put on some of the pieces, and the pieces tend to become deformed. However, this set is made of a polymer that when you put the deformed pieces in boiling water, it returns to its original shape.

Overall, I was very impressed with this set and highly recommend it.

If you search Amazon under "Molecular Visions Kit" you'll find (any given time) up to three or four of the wonderful Darling Model kits. These kits have been trashed as coming in the "wrong" container in some reviews (pictures have now been fixed, which confused the "triple" kit (organometallic / organic / inorganic) which DOES come in the green plastic box with single bag kits previously.

But who cares? The point of Darling isn't just the outstanding snaps, bonds and exclusive atom shells, but the awesome and unique BOOKLETS that come with these sets, that step you through not just assembly but the chemistry, the pi's, the bonds, and MUCH more!! Unlike ANY other set (including Prentice), Darling's books MAKE these series. Stephen simply has spared no effort to EDUCATE us on what we're assembling, in painstaking detail.

Which brings me to a BIG WARNING: You CAN get these kits for 10% of the price as "used"-- I got this one for $2 with an Amazon third party, and have also bought many others here for my classes (molecular biology tutorial creator). BUT:

1. DO NOT buy from a seller that states "parts may be missing." If the "part" is the booklet, you've missed out on 90% of the value of the set. In fact, I put these booklets' value at about $20 by themselves!!

2. If a seller says "like new unopened" you're usually ok. If they say "like new, just opened to check" -- EMAIL them on Amazon's system and ASK SPECIFICALLY if the booklet is there!

So, here are the kits available here at this writing, each with their own booklet:

The kit is very helpful, especially if you have difficulty picturing three dimensional shapes in your head. It also helps with actually observing strains in cycloalkanes, for example.
Models are a bit difficult to put together, but at least they will not fall apart so easily either.
Overall, a great product for Organic Chemistry.

I just tried to make a six-ring molecule with a few branches at the side. The linkages at sides is not a problem, but when I tried to made a carbon atom by linking the center parts of two components, they just won't fit in!!! It is super frustrating when you are extending a few branches because when you put one on, another one drops. I'm not sure if this is because I didn't press them together hard enough, but I tried my best. The product looks professional at first sight, but is not that helpful when actually using it.

First of all I recommend you to buy this ONLY if you are not good at visualizing molecules in 3 dimensions. This is a beautifully made device that I loved, though I found no use for academic purposes because I am a strong visualizer. The pieces are very limited but this is a basic kit to help you see basic compounds and their configurations. You have to be careful when making rings because the bonds that it offers can only make anything greater than or equal to a cyclopentane molecule...though the bonds are still stressed as pentane. The kit is small for you to carry in one hand.

I didn't really like this model kit. It was difficult to fit all the pieces back in the box unless they were packed perfectly. The models also were not very stable and fell apart easily, very frustrating. I did not end up using them hardly at all.

There are much better model kits out there for the same amount of money or less. This will get the job done but its cheap feeling and not the easiest to work with.
