" The Nuts and Bolts of Organic Chemistry "will help readers change their learning habits so they can master the Organic Chemistry course. This text is designed for readers to use early in the course before they dive too far into a traditional textbook. It prepares readers to think about and use the fundamental concepts; it develops in readers the right mindset for learning organic chemistry. This brief book shows readers that understanding fundamental concepts is absolutely essential for success, and helps them develop a good feel for how to apply those concepts to many different situations. The text helps convince readers that brute memorization is not the right way to approach the course; instead, they should master fundamental concepts and important reaction mechanisms. By following the same philosophy as those who write the MCAT exams, Karty focuses on improving readers' thinking ability and powers of logical deduction. KEY TOPICS: Why do most students struggle in Organic Chemistry?, Lewis dot structures and the chemical bond, Molecular geometry and dipole moments, Isomerism, Charge Stability -- Charge is bad!, Reaction Mechanisms -- electron rich to electron poor, Intermolecular forces, Sn1/Sn2/E1/E2 Reactions: The whole story. For all readers interested in understanding the fundamentals of organic chemistry.Joel Karty is the author of 'The Nuts and Bolts of Organic Chemistry: A Student's Guide to Success', published 2005 under ISBN 9780805331172 and ISBN 0805331174.
