Description

Product Description

Master organic chemistry with the help of this proven best-seller! John McMurry''s ORGANIC CHEMISTRY is consistently praised as the most clearly written book available for the course. In John McMurry''s words: "I wrote this book because I love writing. I get great pleasure and satisfaction from taking a complicated subject, turning it around until I see it clearly from a new angle, and then explaining it in simple words." Through his lucid writing and ability to show the beauty and logic of organic chemistry, McMurry makes learning enjoyable. The highest compliment that can be given to a chemistry book applies to McMurry: It works!

Sloan Research Foundation Fellow.

In addition to ORGANIC CHEMISTRY, he is also the author or coauthor of ORGANIC CHEMISTRY: A BIOLOGICAL APPROACH, FUNDAMENTALS OF ORGANIC CHEMISTRY, THE ORGANIC CHEMISTRY OF BIOLOGICAL PATHWAYS.

If you have to use this textbook, I''d recommend getting the Klein Organic Chemistry textbook too. I often would use the Klein textbook to help me solve problems in McMurry because I think the information is organized a bit better in Klein. I really hate that McMurry doesn''t use line drawings for long carbon chains, but that''s my personal preference.

Important information for the access card: if your professor is using Cengage through Blackboard, Moodle, Canvas, Desire 2 Learn, or your school''s learning management system, then this access card will work. BUT, if your professor is using Cengage through the Cengage website, this access card will not work. I unfortunately bought this access card and book package thinking that it would work and it didn''t in my case, so ask your professor before to avoid this.

This is such a wonderful and very helpful tool for doing well in organic chemistry as it helped me a lot when I took two semesters of organic chemistry, as well as did the solutions manual for the textbook and do purchase the textbook and solutions manual together as both are a must in order to be successful in organic I and II! There were a few instances within certain chapters of the text that could have been just a bit more specific while providing just a little bit more detail, is my only other feedback and/or comment that I would like to add on and point out. Thank you so much for this wonderful resource along with the solutions manual that goes with this textbook!

I have been a university professor for over 30 years. I bought the first edition of McMurry''s Organic Chemistry and loved it. It has become thicker and it has many more pages than that first edition, but of course it covers many more topics. This book has been my personal favorite over the years. Other OC textbooks that I like are Fox and Whitesell''s and Bruice''s. The one I don''t particularly care for is Vollhardt''s: too much stuff crammed in the book and a writing style that doesn''t make it very easy for students to follow. It''s fine as a reference, but in my opinion it''s not that great for those who have to study directly from the book. But of course you may disagree with me! At any rate, I think that McMurry''s OC is a fantastic book. Period.

I found that the explanations in the text were insufficient to answer all of the problems given at the end of the chapter. Also each chapter had a small number of problems with answers given and about twice as many problems without answers. Example: Chapter 7 had 21 questions answered in the back, but had 50 unanswered questions, chapter 8 had 21 answered questions with 50 unanswered questions, chapter 9 had 13 answered questions and 43 unanswered questions. In general, the explanations and given examples were insufficient to give the reader a good understanding of the material covered.

Textbook for Organic Chemistry, gets the job done
Reviewed in the United States on April 4, 2020
You can find a pdf of this on the internet somewhere and save yourself over a 100 dollars.

The book was okay in terms of explaining concepts, although the organization of the topics within made it a little difficult to understand the concepts.

I''m doing this now for intellectual entertainment during the lockdown. Even complicated issues have been explained in a very accessible way. Despite the fact that I have not had contact with chemistry for over 20 years, everything is understandable to me

What I expected: Thin pages given the enormous size of this book. What I did not expect: Textbook appeared to have had tape that were removed (could see tape lines). Also cover was mildly deformed especially along the spin. Had some slightly black discolouration to it. Product does a decent job at explaining chemical concepts, but chapters are too long and wordy. Could do with expanding the summary sections following each chapter, and getting rid of the chapters all together. Enjoyed that this textbook used colours and diagrams to help illustrate concepts. Overall, content wise, textbook could do with a more direct approach to the presentation of material.
