  • Speaks the language of students to provide an honest, motivating and supportive guide to the subject
  • Content is presented in short, easy-to-digest chapters to make learning as efficient and effective as possible
  • The focus throughout is on active learning, with an emphasis on organic chemistry being a set of skills that can be mastered, not a series of reactions that need to be memorised
  • Accompanying videos feature the author discussing solutions to the problems featured in the text to provide even further support and explanation

     
'How to succeed in organic chemistry' gives the reader a solid understanding of the principles of organic reaction mechanisms, such that they can draw structures, stereoisomers and reaction mechanisms with confidence. Throughout, the author speaks the language of students to build their confidence and interest.
  
At heart, the book promotes active learning to ensure the necessary skills become so ingrained that they become something students simply cannot forget, and do not need to revise. As such, the book structures learning so that the reader encounters the right things at the right time, helping to 'internalise' key concepts.
  
Concepts, explanations and examples are presented in short, easy-to-read chapters, each of which explores one of a number of themes, including 'Basics', 'Habits', 'Common error', 'Reaction detail', and 'Practice'.
  
The text is accompanied by over 40 videos, in which the author discusses the solutions to problems posed in the text, thereby giving even more support and encouragement to the learner.

Mark C. Elliott, Senior Lecturer in Organic Chemistry and Deputy Director of Learning and Teaching, School of Chemistry, Cardiff University
   
Dr Mark Elliott is Senior Lecturer in Organic Chemistry and Deputy Director of Learning and Teaching in the Department of Chemistry at Cardiff University. His research interests lie in the development of new synthetic methodology, and its application to target synthesis. He teaches organic chemistry at all levels of the undergraduate curriculum.

"I liked the slightly informal tone of writing, almost as if I was being taught one-to-one by the author. It felt personal and honest, as if the author wrote the book to help me personally. " - Stephen Robertson, student, University of York
  

"This book would be a chemistry student's friend. It is different to any I have read before. There is a comforting level of informality, where you felt like your friend was going through and explaining things to you. " - Yasmine Biddick, student, University of Birmingham
  

"This text represents a new way to teach organic chemistry and produce independent, critically thinking chemists; it acknowledges the connected world in which students live and utilises that to avoid the traditional endless lists of reactions for rote learning. Instead, this text focuses on the discipline and practice required by the novice and gives them the tools to become an expert." - Dr Jennifer Slaughter, Department of Chemistry, University of Manchester
  

"This is a unique textbook that does something no other text does - it speaks the language of the modern student and is formatted with that in mind." - Professor Mark Bagley, Department of Chemistry, University of Sussex
