4.0 out of 5 stars For Orgo Review.
I took the ACS examination and I purchased this book for review. I found it quite helpful. Even though I did not ace the exam, there were many reactions that were easier to recognize because I had reveiwed this book. I felt better prepared and did considerably better than fellow classmates who did not have this resource. As has already been mentioned..this book is not...

3.0 out of 5 stars Basically valuable as a check
This thing is valuable as a check to help you verify that you've actually learned something during your ochem studies. It wouldn't really help you improve your weakness or teach you anything, though. Don't stress too much, though. The exam isn't that hard (a lot easier than the exams your prof likely gives you). If you can't get ahold of a copy of this thing, it isn't...

I took the ACS examination and I purchased this book for review. I found it quite helpful. Even though I did not ace the exam, there were many reactions that were easier to recognize because I had reveiwed this book. I felt better prepared and did considerably better than fellow classmates who did not have this resource. As has already been mentioned..this book is not easy to find.

I highly recommend this book for review purposes, and I would also keep it in reach for reference.

5.0 out of 5 stars Extremely helpful, May 16, 2009

This review is from: Preparing for Your ACS Examination in Organic Chemistry : The Official Guide (Paperback)
This product is extremely helpful if you are going to be taking the official ACS Organic Chemistry exam. It reviews all of the topics that will be on the test and also provides sample questions with explanations on how to narrow down the answer choices and select the correct answer. At the end of each section there are also practice questions for you to test yourself and the answers are provided in the book. My only problem with this book is that if your school breaks down Organic Chemistry into two semesters, the book does not differentiate between semesters. Some topics in the book include material from both semesters and it is hard to tell what material will be on each test.

5.0 out of 5 stars great study aid!, April 4, 2006

This review is from: Preparing for Your ACS Examination in Organic Chemistry : The Official Guide (Paperback)
This book is very helpful for studying for ACS final in both Organic 1 & 2, but it is hard to find. Make sure to check with sellers before purchase on the condition of the book -- it is more difficult to use when it has been extensively written in.

I found this manual to be very concise and informative. It really helped me prepare for my exam because it made certain topics easier to understand than the textbook I used for class.

You should really have this book and practice with it during your course before you take the ACS test. It's well worth your time.

I wish they had given more review information with the questions. I liked the format of the questions. Overall, fairly good review of the concepts.
