Chemistry Organic Chemistry backup textbook

  1. Apr 20, 2016 #1

    I will be taking Organic Chemistry 1 in the fall. I've been reading some sections of organic chemistry 8th edition by john e. mcmurry. This book is required and I was wondering if there's any other chemistry books. When I read it, it makes it hard for me to understand what it's saying. And The homework section is confusing.

    Besides David Klein, are there other ones like him?

    I recommend Wade Jr's Organic Chemistry or Hornback's Organic Chemistry. Both are very good at first introduction.
