The first of two workbooks through which students entering first year university courses can gain confidence in organic chemistry, this text will also be of use in A-level courses, and Higher and Sixth Year Study Courses in Chemistry. Designed to challenge the student to test his or herknowledge, each section leads the student through the subject matter by giving a short piece of theory, followed by a question. Space is then provided for the student's answer and the full model answer is given - encouraging thought about what is being read at all times. Areas covered includedrawing structures, functional groups and formulae and molecular weights. Later sections covering such aspects as isomers, non equivalent carbon and hydrogen atoms, and stereochemistry will be relevant to most parts of University courses in organic chemistry and are necessary pre-requisites beforeeffective progress can be made to Beginning Organic Chemistry 2 - Workbook.
Graham L. Patrick is at Paisley University.
