Top 5 Must-Have Resources For Surviving Organic Chemistry


Organic Chemistry Resources1- Review Books and Practice Problems

They say practice makes perfect, and this couldn’t be more true for organic chemistry. I recommend these books (click for my referral link to amazon) for review and practice problems

Organic Chemistry As A Second Language: Orgo 1 or Orgo 2

Organic Chemistry For Dummies: Orgo 1 or Orgo 2

Taking an ACS exam – grab the ACS Study Guide and familiarize yourself with ACS style questions

2- Model Kit

This is especially important for beginner students. A model kit helps you visualize 3-dimensional structures for topics like Newman Projections, Chair Conformations, and Stereochemistry
