Details: Product Description In Organic Chemistry, 3rd Edition, Dr. David Klein builds on the phenomenal success of the first two editions, which presented his unique skills-based approach to learning organic chemistry. Dr. Klein’s skills-based approach includes all of the concepts typically covered in an organic chemistry textbook, and places special emphasis on skills development to support these concepts. This emphasis on skills development in unique SkillBuilder examples provides extensive opportunities for two-semester Organic Chemistry students to develop proficiency in the key skills necessary to succeed in organic chemistry. About the Author David Klein is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Chemistry at Johns Hopkins University where he has taught organic chemistry since 1999. Having worked with thousands of students, he has intense first-hand knowledge of how they learn and the difficulties they encounter. He received his bachelor's degree in chemistry from Johns Hopkins University and his PhD from the University of California at Los Angeles under the supervision of Professor Orville Chapman. Motivated by his experiences teaching organic chemistry as a graduate student at UCLA, David wrote Organic Chemistry as a Second Language (John Wiley & Sons, 2004, updated 2nd edition published in 2008), which has become a highly valued student study resource. David has received numerous teaching awards at both UCLA and Johns Hopkins for his unique, skill-building approach to organic chemistry instruction.
