This book is not a substitution for organic chemistry by any means. It's mean (the first 2 chapters) to prepare, review, and reinforce concepts learned in Gen Chem but vital to organic.
The last 3 chapters are not review. They require some understanding of organic first. They are meant to reinforce and review what you learn in class.
So you can't just jump for chapter 1 and 2 directly into 3. One and two are meant for prior to organic. And 3 through 5 are to be used during the class.
It's definately got me several steps up on my classmates so far.
