'How to succeed in organic chemistry' gives the reader a solid understanding of the principles of organic reaction mechanisms, such that they can draw structures, stereoisomers and reaction mechanisms with confidence. Throughout, the author speaks the language of students to build their confidence and interest.
At heart, the book promotes active learning to ensure the necessary skills become so ingrained that they become something students simply cannot forget, and do not need to revise. As such, the book structures learning so that the reader encounters the right things at the right time, helping to 'internalise' key concepts.
Concepts, explanations and examples are presented in short, easy-to-read chapters, each of which explores one of a number of themes, including 'Basics', 'Habits', 'Common error', 'Reaction detail', and 'Practice'.
The text is accompanied by over 40 videos, in which the author discusses the solutions to problems posed in the text, thereby giving even more support and encouragement to the learner.
