Absolutely invaluable companion to the textbook!

Let's face it - OChem is HARD!
The only way to survive this course is a good instructor and practice, practice, practice. But it has to be "perfect practice". While this solutions manual does give additional guidance on the in-chapter problems, that is NOT the real reason to buy it. I worked through most of the back of the chapter problems - and, as is the case with struggling OChem student - often came up with "solutions" that were totally wrong! If I hadn't had this book, I would have not known where I went wrong or how to proceed.
If you are prepared to WORK HARD on learning organic chemistry, I can't recommend this solutions manual more highly. While your mileage may vary, I am NOT a chemistry brain, but still managed to earn an A for both semesters of OChem and scored 89th percentile on the American Chemical Society OChem Exam.
