How to prepare for chemistry regent?

In order to prepare for the Chemistry NYC regent exam, a student will need one book: Barron's Regents Exams and Answers: Chemistry.

When are there rearrangements in organic chemistry?

In your organic chemistry class, questions like predict the product or mechanisms might oftentimes involve a step with rearrangements (hydride or methyl shifts). 1. How do we know when rearrangements are possible? Simple, any mechanisms that involves a carbocation can have rearrangement. Therefore, reactions Sn1, E1, as well as reactions of alkenes with HX and H3O+ could have rearrangements. 2. How do we know when we should do a rerraganement? If there is a more stable position for a carbocation on a neighboring carbon in the molecule, a shift will happen. For example, let's say that we made a secondary carbocation, but there is a tertiary position next to it, a rearrangement will occur to

Best book for Organic Chemistry

There are many different textbooks for organic chemistry on the market. I find the best, in terms of understanding and step by step approach is "Organic Chemistry" by David Klein. He also wrote two supplemental editions: "Orgo I as a second language" and "Orgo II as a second language." To practice organic chemistry effectively and understand how to do problems, it is important to always compare your answers to the answer key. For this reason, a student should always refer to solutions manual after every problem he/she completes. I suggest doing inside the chapter problems as well as most of the end of chapter problems. A student can also make flashcards to write out all of the reagents and r

Tips for preparing for the finals

Cross off tasks as you complete them. For example chem final: 1.Do practice final exams 2. Redo HW 3. Redo quizzes 4. Make a list of formulas Keep calm and breath. Remember to keep yourself calm, visualize great things, and try to be relaxed and focused. Reward yourself for the tasks completed with little breaks and food. Practice, Practice, Practice! I can't emphasize enough how important practice is for science and math subjects. Transformation Tutoring wishes you amazing finals that are not to
