  • Each chapter contains strategically positioned sections that cover important skills. In each section, an important skill is developed or fine-tuned. Multiple problems are then provided in order to build competence in that skill. Students are given the opportunity to master each core skill before moving on to the next section.
  • The end-of-chapter exercises integrate the skills developed throughout the chapter.
  • Three short chapters (Chapters 7, 12, and 24) are devoted entirely to skill development (proposing mechanisms and proposing syntheses).
  • Dr. Klein's writing style strikes a unique balance between a formal and conversational tone, while not comprising the scientific rigor expected of a 2-semester organic chemistry text.
