Organic Chemistry by Morrison and Boyd

This book is very complete. I utilized it in order to supplement formal studying for the Fundamentals of Engineering Exam.
The work contains a solid foundation in the structure of matter
which leads up to the behavior of molecules, hydrocarbons,
reactivity, chain reactions and the molecular formula. The book
presumes some prior knowledge of chemistry or an instructor
who will spend more time on the fundamental principles. There are
many examples depicting the various concepts and ample solution
sets to assist in homework preparation and examinations.
The work is a good reference guide in chemistry . I found that
it was useful in explaining material beyond the coverage of
the Engineering Review Courses. There is a very detailed coverage
of the "ane", "ene" and "yne" subdivisions of chemical reactions. This work should be retained for future use after
taking the basic course.
