Organic Chemistry is confusing enough on its own, so I’d like to clear up the confusion on the ‘must have’ resources for the course!
1- 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
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
