9780534363543: Fundamentals of Organic Chemistry (with InfoTrac and Organic Chemistry Online CD-ROM)

Written for the short course--where content must be thorough but to-the-point--Fundamentals of Organic Chemistry provides an effective, clear, and readable introduction to the beauty and logic of organic chemistry. McMurry presents only those subjects needed for a brief course while maintaining the important pedagogical tools commonly found in larger books. With clear explanations, thought-provoking examples, and an innovative vertical format for explaining reaction mechanisms, Fundamentals takes a modern approach: primary organization is by functional group, beginning with the simple (alkanes) and progressing to the more complex. Within the primary organization, there is also an emphasis on explaining the fundamental mechanistic similarities of reactions. Through this approach, memorization is minimized and understanding is maximized.
