You're getting ready for the new semester. And you're preparing to tackle the beast that is Organic Chemistry.
You've heard all the rumors about the class, but you need to know where to start and WHAT to have on hand.
I've got you covered!
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!
Of course, if you're wondering why Orgo has such a tough reputation and how it's different from other sciences, make sure to read What to Expect in Organic Chemistry.
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.
