A-B-C for organic chemistry for first year university
Yes, organic chemistry CAN be understood!! A lot of the time, students understand organic chemistry as if it were a foreign language from outside the Milky Way. I can appreciate this; once upon a time, I was a student trying to survive the perils of 1st year organic chemistry.
After graduating from my PhD, I finally understood the obstacles behind organic chemistry, explaining to students that the secret lies in treating organic chemistry as a second language. In order to fully grasp the "second" language, there must be a strong foundation in learning the A-B-C's, followed by forming short sentences then with confidence, mini stories.
Take a look at these notes, and you will fully appreciate your second language, organic chemistry :)
