"McMurry's greatest strength to this reviewer is the level of presentation, the emphasis on physical principles. I think the questions in McMurry both in text and end of chapter are excellent."
"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."

Now the "hybrid" version of this book is what drives me absolutely crazy and hence the 3 star rating. All of your accustomed post chapter homework sets can only be accessed via the ebook which comes with your OWL/Cengage subscription. So if you are travelling without wifi or don't have ready access to get the ebook printed or pdf'd to a tablet or smart phone, you may find yourself in a bind or frustrated. If you are tech savvy and ready then you enjoy not having to lug around as big of a book. My only issue with this is that if you can already get a full ebook, why do you even need a hybrid one, but thats just me. Book is pretty good and has a nice way of displaying the chemicals!
Rating: 5/5, definite buy.
