Organic Chemistry at a Glance Synopsis

With the diverse teaching backgrounds of first year university students, the highly detailed traditional organic chemistry textbook does not provide an easily digestible presentation of the very basic information required by many students to begin their study of this exciting subject. Based on the highly successful and student friendly at a glance approach, with integrated, self contained double page spreads of text and graphics, Organic Chemistry at a Glance provides concise organic chemistry notes for students studying chemistry and related courses at undergraduate level. Graphical presentation of information is central to the book and facilitates the rapid assimilation and understanding of the basic concepts, principles and definitions of organic chemistry. It is not intended to replace existing organic chemistry textbooks, but to provide a tool with which the student can quickly, economically and confidently acquire, regularly review and revise the basic facts that underpin organic chemistry.
