5.0 out of 5 stars Great Help February 17, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this solutions manual because my organic chemistry professor suggested it, and it turned out to be a great help. Working out the problems in the textbook really helps solidify the concepts, and this solutions manual clearly shows all of the answers and mechanisms. If you have the textbook you should definitely invest in this manual.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simek Organic Chemistry Solutions Manual October 20, 2011
I briefly explained in my review of the Wade organic chemistry textbook the reason that I use four organic chemistry textbooks along with the Solutions Manual for each of them. In that review I said that this Solutions Manual has by far the clearest explanations (occasionally accompanied by good humor) of any of the other three and that it is the only one of mine that was written by a different professor than wrote the textbook.

To me that is a distinct advantage because no matter how clearly a textbook author writes I am going to have difficulty with some concepts and I have a much better chance of understanding those more difficult concepts when they are explained from a slightly different perspective than in the textbook, which is much less likely when the same person writes both the textbook and the Solutions Manual.

Besides its exceptional clarity, another thing that makes the book so enjoyable as a learning tool is that it seemed obvious to me that the author thoroughly enjoyed writing the best Solutions Manual he could possibly write.

One reviewer said this book only gives the answers to the problems! The one I have gives detailed solutions to almost EVERY problem.

4.0 out of 5 stars Needed mostly for Organic 2 and synthesis questions February 6, 2010
By Eric C
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This solution manual is expensive for what it offers, however, it helps mostly with SN1, SN2, E1, E2 reactions etc. There is little or no explanation - just the solution with some arrows pointing in different directions. I find it very greedy of the different authors that you have to spent $180 on a book and another few big ones for a solution manual. If you can find it used then its worth it.

By James
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm not usually a fan of solution manuals. I feel like a student should have a solution manual free of charge in the form of a professor or teaching assistant. So, I muscled through the 1st of a 3 course Organic Chemistry sequence purely through the textbook, lecture notes, and numerous office hour visits. I survived, but it was painful. I finally gave in and bought the solutions manual for the second course. I have to admit that it is more expensive than I am comfortable paying for a companion book to an already expensive textbook, but I also have to admit that it helped greatly. The solutions manual unfortunately does not cover every question in the book, and it does not enumerate every step in every answer. However, it gives enough information to allow me to ask specific questions rather than just bring my textbook to my professor's office and ask him to do every problem for me. Instead, I could show the professor which step I still did not understand, which would usually lead to the pinpointing of a certain concept I did not understand. It does not serve as a replacement for a professor or a TA, but I found it to be an invaluable complement.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lacking for a solutions manual November 16, 2010
By J. Hale
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
When I'm being charged an additional fee on top of an already expensive book JUST to get the answers to questions already paid for, I expect more than what is given here. This book gives the answers to problems, and nothing more. Am I alone, or isn't the point of a solution to tell you WHY the solution is what it is, and perhaps even point out why other answers are incorrect?

Condition described as good, but book came in two pieces as binding had completely worn through
Amazon's definition of "good" for books says "all pages & cover in tact"... Clearly this was not the case
I complained 6 days ago, I have not heard back

2.0 out of 5 stars A solutions manual... though not the best January 1, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This does exactly what it says, though much of what it presents are mere answers rather than fully explained and detailed solutions. This is a particular problem for a concept-heavy course such as organic chemistry, where ensuring a full understanding and comprehension is vital. Though I am one who has usually found success in my courses through using the solutions to thoroughly examine every problem, this manual simply isn't detailed enough for that to work effectively, though some blame may also be laid on the composition of the problems in some cases. This time, this was not a solutions set which justified the expense required to obtain it.
