Often a lack of understanding of basic concepts and how they fit together is the major reason students do poorly in chemistry class. This book is for anyone who needs help understanding the most difficult chemistry concepts and tools that will be encountered in a typical high-school level chemistry classes. This book can also be used to review the basics before starting a college introductory or organic chemistry class. It is a useful supplement to the class textbook and gives a unique perspective on the subject. Whether you are taking chemistry for the first time in high school, have a child who needs help with homework, or just want to find out more about chemistry, this book can help. Topics include The Atom, The Mole, Scientific Notation, Significant Figures, Unit Conversions, Bonding, Chemical Reactions, and Solubility. Problem-solving advice, homework tips, and test taking skills are also included.

Students often say, “I studied 40 hours for this exam and I still didn’t do well. Where did I go wrong?” Most instructors hear this complaint every year. In many cases, it is true that the student invested countless hours, only to produce abysmal results. Often, inefficient study habits are to blame. The important question is: why do so many students have difficulty preparing themselves for organic chemistry exams? There are certainly several factors at play here, but perhaps the most dominant factor is a fundamental disconnect between what students learn and the tasks expected of them. To address the disconnect in organic chemistry instruction, David Klein has developed a textbook that utilizes a skills-based approach to instruction. The textbook includes all of the concepts typically covered in an organic chemistry textbook, but special emphasis is placed on skills development to support these concepts. This emphasis upon skills development will provide students with a greater opportunity to develop proficiency in the key skills necessary to succeed in organic chemistry.   As an example, resonance structures are used repeatedly throughout the course, and students must become masters of resonance structures early in the course. Therefore, a significant portion of chapter 1 is devoted to drawing resonance structures.   Two chapters (6 and 12) are devoted almost entirely to skill development. Chapter 6 emphasizes skills that are necessary for drawing mechanisms, while chapter 12 prepares the student for proposing syntheses.  In addition, each chapter contains numerous Skillbuilders, each of which is designed to foster a specific skill. Each skillbuildercontains three parts: 1. Learn the Skill: a solved problem that demonstrates a particular skill;  2. Practice the Skill: numerous problems (similar to the solved problem) that give the students an opportunity to practice and master the skill; 3. Apply the Skill: one or two more-challenging problems in which the student must apply the skill in a slightly different environment. These problems include conceptual, cumulative, and applied problems that encourage students to think out of the box. Sometimes problems that foreshadow concepts introduced in later chapters are also included. All SkillBuilders are visually summarized at the end of each chapter (Skillbuilder review), followed by a list of suggested in-chapter and end-of-chapter practice problems.

Understanding over memorization. Joel Karty has dedicated nearly a decade developing a teaching approach and textbook that is organized by mechanism, promotes learning by doing, and provides students with the background and support they need to be successful in organic chemistry as well as pre-professional placement exams like the MCAT. Karty’s organization, conversational writing style, and interactive pedagogy facilitate understanding rather than memorization and place the emphasis back on mechanisms.
