It's been two to three years since I took General Chemistry. I may have to take Organic Chemistry in the near future. I kinda want to prep and kick this classes ass.

Anyone got any suggestions websites, books, whatever else to help learn this shit? It would be greatly appreciated!

Do you have to take baby Organic that is one semester, or Organic 1 and 2?

Since it's been so long since you took General Chem, Im assuming you aren't a chem major.

Hopefully you only need baby Organic. It's easier and you'll do fine.

its just an online text with some good notes. but the best thing to kick that classes ass, study, study, and study. coffee might help.

I am in Ochem II right now!!

Oh boy you are in for some fun!! ;)

But seriously. No math is involved. So that is nice. But lots and lots of memorization and art work with bond line structures.


Get the book "Organic Chemistry as a Second Language" by Klein.

It's on amazon. Great book that explains reactions, mechanisms, regiochemistry, and other Ochem topics you will see in your class. It's about $30 bucks. Totally worth it.

And buy a dry erase board to practice. So much easier then paper and pencils. Much more efficient way of practicing problems.


Read up on your assigned reading before class.


Buy big flash cards. Flash cards will be your best friend for the next two semester.


Don't get behind in staying. There is soo much material to cover it is easy to get way behind.

Don't let it Intimidate you. It's just Ochem. Lol

Pm me if you need any more advice!
