The solution manual is fine - not inherently valuable but nonetheless required for my course. However, be wary that the edition you get may be an 'e-book'. The seller will mention the item's condition (soft cover, hard cover, or e-book) in their transaction notes before you purchase, however just be sure you read that so you aren't surprised with something you are not expecting. This is not saying that every seller on this page is offering an e-book, simply that some are, so know which you are buying.

I would absolutly recommend this product to anyone who bought the hardcover edition. All the answers come with explanations which make it easy to understand and learn organic chemistry.

This solutions manual doesn't help the student too much, in too many cases it only gives the answer to complicated questions without an explanation. When you are a collage student and you buy this you expect a little bit more help from it. Is like a solutions appendix for the book, but certainly not a solutions manual. On the other hand I must say that the McMurry Organic book is outstanding, is very sad that the solutions manual is not at the same level.

Very useful in helping with the problems in the textbook. I am so glad that I purchased this despite the bad reviews I had seen about it. Of course, you must have some knowledge about organic chemistry in order for this book to be helpful, but even with the most mediocre idea of what to do, this book will help trememdously.

Helpful answers to every question in the book. If anyone says that is isn't well laid out or gives the mechanisms/answers along with how they got the answers they are a lazy ass period.

Let's be honest: paying nearly $100 for a solutions manual sort of...well, sucks.

The pricing is especially onerous as one has already invested nearly $200 in McMurry's text, which does not include the answers to problems in the back, making the study guide a necessary evil.

If you're using McMurry, you're going to need this. I can't say I like it so far; the answers don't always seem to match the problems exactly and are sometimes blatantly wrong. It's frustrating when the solutions manual gives a solution for a mechanism that simply will not work according to the text.

I only paid 6 dollars plus shipping for this book and it said it was in good condition. When it arrived it was in very very poor condition, there were a few pages falling out and a few pages with water damage. All the pages seem to be yellowed and tattered. But I mean I actually barely use it for my Organic Chemistry class so for 6 dollars I'm fine with the quality as long as I can read the pages. Since text books are so expensive these days I wouldn't not recommend it. Just make sure your not going to be using it a lot.

I needed a guide/Solutions Manual but didn't want to spend high $ for the 8th edition so searched for the 7th. While you need to look through the table of contents to find the appropriate chapter (they've rearranged the chapters in the 8th edition), it's still a great help for a low price. Not all of the questions are answered, but the review material is helpful and relevant. All in all, this is a good price and worth it for what you get out of it. The Seller sent it quickly and I received it earlier than expected.
