Students raved about Klein’s best-selling first book, Organic Chemistry as a Second Language––and for good reason. Finally, here was a text that put this challenging course into clear, easy-to-understand language.
Now in Organic Chemistry II as a Second Language™: Second Semester Topics, Klein’s much-anticipated follow-up for the second semester of Organic Chemistry, he continues to present fundamental principles and problem-solving strategies to help you get a better grade in your course.
Here’s how Organic Chemistry II as a Second Language™ will help you get a better grade:
Master the language of Organic Chemistry
Klein’s first book helped thousands of students tackle molecules, the nouns in organic chemistry. Now, he takes his popular approach to the next step, and focuses on mechanisms––the verbs in the language of organic chemistry.
Study more efficiently and effectively
Don’t waste time engaging in rote memorization. Organic Chemistry II as a Second Language™ helps you understand the fundamental principles and themes of mechanisms, so you can predict reactions––even ones that you have never seen before.
Build your problem-solving skills
Organic Chemistry II as a Second Language™ focuses on the crucial problem-solving skills that you need to succeed in your second semester of Organic Chemistry. The text helps you solve three very important types of problems: proposing a mechanism, predicting products, and proposing a synthesis.

This really helped my grade! I don't know what I would have done if I hadn't seen this book recommended by my professor.Published 4 months ago by bookie
I find these books-the first and the second-very adequate, but not nearly as sensational as some people have claimed they are.Published 5 months ago by withered wombat
I really liked this book. It helped me around some issues I had with some concepts and reactions. I'd get the OChem 1 to go with it too.Published 5 months ago by J. Maben
