Study Page for Klein 3rd Edition

If you are studying a particular chapter in Organic Chemistry, 3rd Ed. by David Klein, the links below cite what lessons in the Primer to read and then there is a link to a playlist to see explained practice problems for each chapter. You can read the Primer before, after, or instead of reading the chapter. You'll have to see what works best for you and assess how much time you have. The Primer reading is WAY shorter than the text book reading if you are in a time crunch and you need to hit some of the high points.
