Textbook: Organic chemistry, 5 th edition (Paula Bruice), Pearson Prentice Hall, 2006 (used ’08) Study Guide: There is a study guide to accompany the text and it has been packaged with the text along with a model kit, Ace Organic, I-clicker rebate for $134 ($105 used). Molecular Model Set: Any good molecular model set is highly recommended (for example, ISBN: 0-205-08136-3 and 0-9648837-1). A model set from Prentice Hall has been packaged with the textbook/solutions manual. You ARE allowed to bring your model set to all exams for your use so I encourage you to buy one and learn how to use it to visualize structures. ACE Organic: This is a support website, which provides plenty of practice problems and other useful features that should prove helpful for the course. We have convinced the publisher to also include access code to this website in the bundle you can buy at the bookstore. The publisher (Pearson Prentice Hall) has created a custom website for the textbook ( http://www.pearsoncustom.com/ny/cornell_chemistry/ ), which gives students dual access to both the companion website for the Bruice text and ACE Organic. If you are interested, you can purchase an access code by going to this website and select “ Get Access ”. I-Clickers: Also included in the textbook bundle is an I-Clicker rebate. These clickers are being used in around 20 different classes at Cornell (many of you might already be familiar with those from Roger Loring’s CHEM207 class). You can purchase them individually at the bookstore (they sell used ones). I would like you to bring your I-clickers to every class. I plan present 1 or two questions each class the require I-clicker participation. This is a fun and useful tool that allows more class participation in addition to serving as a great indicator of which topics are challenging and which ones are not....
