Since all three parts of CHEM140 will cover stereochemical aspects of mechanism, transition states, etc. models are extremely valuable to any undertaking in organic chemistry. The bookstore has several types but please see me for a less expensive , more flexible recommendation. Practice with them frequently, because models will not be allowed in exams .
