Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Praise for The Organic Chem Lab Survival Manual

"This manual is the best thing since sliced bread for learning initial techniques for organic lab. Clearly, this author has dealt with students in the organic lab for a long time..the writing style is wonderful, incredibly appropriate for college undergrads." - Deborah Lieberman, University of Cincinnati

"Organic Chemistry lab can be quite intimidating to students. Zubrick helps make organic chemistry a little less scary." - DeeAnne Goodenough-Lashua, the University of Notre Dame

"The manual is a must for students who really want to understand what they are doing...The writing style is outstanding and approachable for the novice. Overall, it is an outstanding text for the general organic chemistry laboratory." - Robert Stockland, Bucknell University

"I love Zubrick's style: it's funny, engaging, and friendly...the student will probably find the book entertaining (I do), and learn about organic chemistry lab at the same time. I highly recommend it." - Peter T. Bell, Tarleton State University

"I have used Zubrick since the fourth edition was released and have noticed that each subsequent edition gets better and better." - Christopher J. Peeples, The University of Tulsa

So I bought this item because I was intimidated going into the the O-chem lab and I thought this book might help me with pointers and a more thorough understanding of what I was attempting to do. It gave explanations of some of the techniques I have used so far but so does my lab manual. It didn't reveal any 'secrets' that helped me succeed more than my peers or explain techniques more thoroughly or clearly than my lab manual. Unless you have a prof that gives you no help or explanation of techniques, I would skip buying this book. Refer to your lab manual or the techniques companion to the lab manual if there is one at the the library or from your prof.

I recently took Organic Chemistry, and this book does a very good job at explaining all techniques. It gives detailed instructions to succeed in the lab, what to do, what not to do. It also has a touch of humor, which makes it a bit easier to read than serious books because it makes the task less boring. However, the book isn't much different from the previous editions I have seen from my classmates. Organic Chemistry techniques don't really change, so if you're pressed for money, you are better off buying a previous edition.

Book was in great condition. It's like all 6 students that had purchased it before me had just left in sitting on their desks. Which speaks more about the students laziness than the book itself as the book is a fantastic read. Very informative and in layman's terms. A little elbow grease and some goo gone took all stickers off completely. Highly recommend.

Only bought this because I was required to for class. It was much cheaper on Amazon. Great introductory to some of the techniques, but sometimes it lacks further explanation.

Love this book. It teaches techniques well, but remains engaging with the humourous approach. The book was also in excellent condition. Thanks!
