Publisher Comments:

Barron's growing list of E-Z Series titles are new, updated, and improved versions of Barron's longtime popular Easy Way books. New cover designs reflect the all-new interior layouts, which feature extensive two-color treatment, a fresh, modern typeface, and more graphic material than ever. These books are self-teaching manuals designed to improve students' grades in a wide variety of academic and practical subjects. Skill levels range between senior high school and college-101 standards. All titles present detailed reviews of the target subject plus short quizzes and longer tests to help students assess their learning progress. All exercises and tests come with answers. This reader-friendly supplementary text for organic chemistry students reviews important topics that include stereochemistry, alkenes, nucleophilic substitution and elimination reactions, free-radical reaction, alcohols and thiols, and more.

Book News Annotation:

As a supplement to the standard organic chemistry textbook, Hathaway (LeTourneau U.) explains how to name alkanes, alkenes, alkynes, alcohols, ethers, aromatic compounds, amines, aldehydes, and carboxylic acids, and describes the mechanisms of organic reactions. The book was originally published in 2006 as Organic chemistry the easy way. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
