General Information about
Chem 211 Lecture Fall 2018
Required Text: Organic Chemistry, Sixth Edition by Loudon and Parise
ISBN: 978-1-936221-34-9
Any Molecular Model Set for Organic Chemistry. Good possibilities are in Molymod Molecular Kit or Prentce Hall Molecular Model Kit or Set For Organic Chemistry

Highly Recommended: Organic Chemistry as a Second Language by David R. Klein
ISBN: 978-1-119-11066-8

Note: The solutions manual for this text is very good and very useful to students. Molecular models are also good to have though not necessary for everyone. With these latter two resources, you might consider sharing them with one or two other students. I know these materials are expensive. I feel many students would greatly benefit by buying a new or used edition of Klein.

The following information is very important and should be carefully noted by each student.
