Dr.Rogers’ PROBLEM SETS from previous terms   


ONLY doing the Problem Sets will NOT be sufficient to prepare yourself for examinations. 

Make sure you regularly work through problems from the textbook. 

You will find solutions to ALL the end-of-chapter problems in the Study Guide.

Use it to help you learn how to deal with organic chemistry problems. 

How to properly use your Study Guide: 

Do the problems yourself, then check your answer. 

Do NOT just read the solutions manual – that will give you a completely false sense of confidence, because you cannot learn how to solve problems yourself without struggling through them yourself.

Bring print-outs of the slides to class, so you can focus your attention on listening & participating.

Take down notes on the explanations and examples, rather than just copying down the slides.
