Organic chemistry textbooks are not written for ease of reading. They’re just not. They’re thousands of pages long, often unclear, and so dense that the material needs to be read multiple times for students to even begin to understand.
Take a look at this Amazon.com review of a $300 textbook, written by a fellow student:
The tough part about learning O-Chem should be trying to understand the chemistry, not trying to understand the textbook.
The Orgo Made Simple chapter summaries help you learn the chemistry as they…
- are written in easy-to-understand language.
- are crafted by recent students, focusing on the most important and most tested concepts in organic chemistry.
- heavily use figures, because let’s face it—we’d all rather look at a figure than read a long paragraph.
- have examples with step-by-step instruction in the text to give practice problems from the moment the concept is introduced.
Here’s what one student told her college’s newspaper about the Orgo Made Simple chapter summaries:
Organic chemistry is tough enough? Why be more overwhelmed than necessary?
