5.0 out of 5 stars Great introductory organic chemistry book December 29, 2008
Format:Hardcover
I used this book for a two semester course in organic chemistry. Of all the textbooks I have read, and believe me I have read a LOT, this is among the top 3 of all time. The authors clearly explain the material and the order of the chapters is great, starting with a quick overview of chemical concepts, then going into haloalkanes, alcohols, alkenes, alkynes, specroscopic methods, and finally some more advanced reactions and functional groups like carboxylic acids and their derviatives as well as a few ending chapters on biochemical topics like amino acids and carbohydrates. This book is great for a student who has never had exposure to organic chemistry as it presents the most fundamental reactions for a given functional group as well as clear descriptions. One thing I really enjoy about this textbook is the summary of reactions at the end of each chapter which allows you to look up a reaction easily. Another thing I really like is the problems that are placed directly in the chapter, which have answers in the back of the book; these make sure you really understood the material you just read.

Note: pick up the previous edition if you can, its much cheaper and is nearly identical to the newer edition; however the problems at the end of the chapters may be different(?).

5.0 out of 5 stars Great textbook October 30, 2008
By P. Chen
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Great textbook. Everything is extremely detailed, but not to the point where there's useless information. The problems throughout the chapters have answers in the back, and the end-of-chapter problems have answers in the solutions manual (which, by the way, is also excellent). There are also lots of examples provided, which are very helpful for those who are visual learners.

This is a very good textbook and I would recommend it to anyone who is learning organic chemistry.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cheap July 15, 2013
By Luke
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I'm using it to study by myself over the summer and it is very helpful. The wording is very clear and lets you think mechanistically. The info boxes are interesting. Get this edition if you can because it is so much cheaper.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect February 22, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The book came quickly and was exactly as described. Not my favorite book since it's my ochem class reader but it was better than others I've seen.

4.0 out of 5 stars I liked it in the beginning.. December 10, 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
To all you Organic Chemistry majors...this book is surprisingly good...It really teaches you how to understand the basics of ochem...but as the book progressed, it got confusing. Unfortunately, the solutions do not come with the book. You need to purchase a separate manual with this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best organic chem book September 3, 2008
Format:Hardcover
This book is simple to understand even amidst all the details it provides. The explanations are clear and concise while explaining all the jargon and convention. The Vollhardt text also gives a really good background to why reactions occur rather than plopping reactions on the page.
