Organic Chemistry with Learning by Modeling CD-ROM by Francis A Carey

Francis A. Carey is a native of Pennsylvania, educated in the public schools of Philadelphia, at Drexel University (. in chemistry, 1959), and at Penn State (P. Following postdoctoral work at Harvard and military service, he was appointed to the chemistry faculty of the University of Virginia in 1966. Prior to retiring in 2000, he regularly taught the two-semester lecture courses in general chemistry and organic chemistry.

Learning By Modeling CD-ROM. In collaboration with Wavefunction, we have created a cross-function CD-ROM that contains an electronic model-building kit and a rich collection of animations and molecular models that reveal the interplay between electronic structure and reactivity in organic chemistry. With the SpartanView and SpartanBuild software, students can view models from the text and also make their own.

From its first edition through this, its sixth,Organic Chemistry has been designed to meet the needs of the "mainstream," two-semester, undergraduate organic chemistry course. This best-selling text gives students a solid understanding of organic chemistry by stressing how fundamental reaction mechanisms function and how reactions occur. With the addition of handwritten solutions, new cutting-edge molecular illustrations, updated spectroscopy coverage, seamless integration of molecular modeling exercises, and state-of-the-art multimedia tools, the 6th edition of Organic Chemistry clearly offers the most up-to-date approach to the study of organic chemistry.
Reviews: 7
Yes I used this book for 2 semesters of organic chem. The class wasn't fun but atleast this book was pretty good. It describes alot of the tough stuff in detail and has great summaries at the end of each chapter. It is worth the money and if you fail the class you sure cant blame it on this book. ALSO buy it used b/c the new one is much too expensive and turns out you may not like orgo that much anyway haha

Very good service! The book was in perfect condition, I am extremely pleased that the book had the quality promised.
The Pros: Whew... This coupeled with a great teacher for the course have made Organic Chemistry a little less painfull than it would otherwise be.

An extremely easy read compared to my Chemistry I and II texts, Carey doesn't just spew chemical jargon like so many Chemistry authors tend to do. He provides unique visuals, supporting facts, and side notes that provide usefull information, and occasional real world application stories about the importance of organic chemistry... like in the 60s Dr.s used the wrong enantiomer (certain shape) of a chemical that had a mirror image chemical that should have been used instead... this lead to birth defects in childeren...It takes what your are learning and shows you how this is and has been important.

Another Pro: The student solution manual comes with complete answers and detailed explanations to all questions... a big help when I get stuck on a 'but why'... problem.

The con: The included CD-ROM for Molecular modeling isn't that good. A really hard-to-use program, definately not user friendly, and I'm an advanced pc user. If you have about a month before your Organic class begins, you could probably go through the Chapter summaries at the end of the text, and the programs online help site to figure it out, but once you start Organic I, you're not going to have time to waste figuring this out... I suggest the classic plastic molecular model kits (available here on amazon). The pretince hall ball and stick models seem to be the Chem norm and I like them the best.
I found this book to be quite excellent; it was used for an undergraduate course which I dropped, but I found the book so useful that I kept it. I find that this book is clearer than many professors. The strengths of this book are that it does a good job of discussing unifying themes, patterns, etc. The weaknesses are that it presents a somewhat abstract, idealized view of the subject, with little or no discussion of practical concerns or connections to other subjects. The author does not do a very good job of pointing the reader towards further reading, or discussing the ways in which one might pursue deeper questions.

One of the other reviewers complained that this book has too much explanation--I think this extra discussion of the "how" and "why" is actually critical for learning the subject of O. chem. Many students find organic chemistry difficult because they approach it as a collection of random facts to be memorized. In this book, the author consistently discusses unifying themes, and weaves specific facts together with general principles into a coherent fabric of ideas. This makes otherwise painful material seem natural and easy--for the students who have the patience to read every paragraph thoroughly. (Students who don't want to do this, in my opinion, have no business taking O. Chem).

The weaknesses of this book is that it is too idealized and perhaps at times too abstract. While the book does discuss reaction mechanisms and synthesis techniques, they are done in an overly idealized way. The author presents a very classical (and I would even go so far as to say short-sighted) view of Chemistry in which byproducts of reactions are totally ignored. Someone interested in chemical engineering, for instance, will likely find this book inadequate for their needs. Similarly, people interested in Biology and Biochemistry will find that this book does not make or even set up any of the obvious connections to these subjects. The thoughtful reader will find too many questions that arise naturally in the text that are not even mentioned, let alone addressed. Similarly, there is very little discussion of health and environmental issues associated with the various families of compounds. This is a shame, because the general trends and patterns in the toxicity and hazards associated with various compounds are intimately related to the trends and patterns in molecule structure and form that are discussed in this book.

Overall, this is an above-average text that is well-suited for use as a textbook in a basic organic chemistry class. I think it is exceptionally well-suited to self-study. In either case, however, readers interested in chemical engineering, biology, biochemistry, and/or environmental issues, would need to rely on supplementary materials to address some of the omissions I described above.
Orgo (I, II) was the most difficult subject I EVER had. I've taken both sections over and went through 2 books. The strengths of this particular book are its reaction summaries: before introducing a topic, the author dedicates a page or two to summarizing the reactions that lead up to this topic and then summarizes the reactions of the topic once he's through explaining it. Example: 'Reactions That Yield Alcohols' and then `Reactions of Alcohols'. Summaries are accompanied by short, yet thorough descriptions. With elaborate and comprehensive reaction mechanisms, this book is more of a reference than a textbook, although the text is inclusive and relatively simple. If you understand the lectures and use this book for mechanisms, reactions and problems, rather than for understanding concepts, you'll be fine.

One major weakness of this book is the NMR IR Spectroscopy section, which does a poor job of explaining this easy but confusing topic. Another shortcoming -- the only all-inclusive table of functional groups is provided in the index at the very back of the book, so you'll have to make a copy to keep it handy at all times. The problems deserve a mention -- most are simple and repetitive, those who do them get the grades.

A general note to the beginners: ALLNIGHTERS BEFORE ORGO EXAMS DO NOT WORK (even if you put Ritalin in your coffee)! Do yourselves a big favor, study constantly through the semester and just review before the exam. Concentrate on mechanisms and problems rather than on theory and you will succeed. Remember -- memorization comes from doing problems and not from repeating a reaction 10 times in a row. All the luck in the world to the brave souls who register for o-chem!
