Topics to be Covered-
Chem 211 Lecture Fall 2018

Chapter references are for Organic Chemistry by Loudon and Parise 6th Edition
You might use Loudon and Parise (L&P) as a reference. Other chapter references are to Klein.
You might find Klein to be a more practical book for the course.

You can't do it all, so you have to choose your method. Listen to suggestions given in class.
