"The material has a far greater biological focus, which is done successfully. This is a big plus in my mind. . . . the chemistry is presented with a high degree of accuracy. There are certainly no major problems."
"The chapter problems are excellent and challenge students at many levels. Chapter summaries are well written. The 'Why This Chapter' lead-ins are superb."
"The author has always produced a well written book that is easy to read. That is a comment I have heard from both other colleagues and students alike. This has always been a general strength of the text. I was happy to see the inclusion of the 'Focus On' topics as supplements to the chapter's material to excite the students about other topics in organic chemistry related to the chapter material. I think these are quite informative for the students."
"We have been using McMurry's text for the past several years here at UA, and I am, therefore, quite familiar with it. The general strengths include the readability and a wealth of good problems."
