No Textbook Requirement

There are numerous on-line resources for learning organic chemistry. For this reason, I do not have specific textbook requirement. However all students are required to identify an organic chemistry resource to help you succeed in this course:

  • CHEM 243-244 Organic Chemistry Web Page ( Lecture and lab syllabi, lab handouts, worksheets, quizzes and answer keys.
  • Buy a used organic chemistry text on-line (check with me before buying).
  • Find your own on-line resource (NOT Wikipedia!).  Here are a few free organic chemistry resources:
