5.0 out of 5 stars Best of luck use your textbook June 23 2015
By Mr. Robocop - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Extremely helpfully for organic chemistry i suggest buying in the first semester of the course to take advantage of this resource. Its a relatively cheap way to help assist you, it by no means relieves you of the time you will need to spend studying and reviewing notes. But it is a solid reference to help explain certain difficult subjects through a different perspective. Best of luck use your textbook, record your lectures, visit your teachers office hours and stay ahead of the lessons these are some tips that might help reduce some of stress accompanied with the class. You got this!

The book is easy to read, you need some background knowledge because some topics are oversimplified. That's the magic of this book, topics are explain straight away making it easy to picture things as a whole.

5.0 out of 5 stars since my actual textbook is so confusing (it really is written for dummies like me lol Nov. 29 2015
By Amazon Buyer - Published on

I can't tell you how much this book has helped me! They explain things so well! I read this book to get a general understanding of whats going on, since my actual textbook is so confusing (it really is written for dummies like me lol!). It can't replace an actual textbook though, since it is so general. It explains really hard concepts really well which I love!
