Wait a minute! What do you mean "ordering"? The book is free! Right?
Yes, the textbook is indeed free, but--"Ahh ha," you say, "I knew there was a catch."--the supplementary exercises from the end of the chapter AND the answer key to all of the exercises are not free. They are available for the cost of printing and a bit extra. After all, we've got to pay for this web site somehow!
We are giving you the first half of the book (the text), but the other half (the exercises) is not downloadable. The textbook organizes the content, but without the second half you do not master Organic Chemistry. That is how we pay for the layout, design, and hosting of this website. You must work all the exercises you can so you can be a successful organic chemistry student.
That is the purpose of this page: to help you order a bound, printed copy of the supplementary exercises and the answer book. For those who want a bound, printed copy of the book, you can do that as well as well. Click on the button below to get them coming your way! Order an extra set--you never know when you might need a spare!
The books that are now available are the Supplementary Exercises and the Solutions to the Exercises as well as the first two volumes (of three) in the textbook. You also have these four bonuses when you purchase the printed textbooks.
BONUS #1—The printed and bound books are easier to handle than loose pages from your printed downloads.
BONUS #2—The cross references in the printed text are all real page numbers—not the mythical page where all organic chemistry knowledge is found in the downloaded text (all on page 000!) Read the FAQ for more about about page 000.
BONUS #3—The printed texts all have cool covers featuring real Organic Chemistry students instead of some design that might mean more to your teacher or the author of the book than to you.
BONUS #4—Volume 3 of the textbook contains an index to the entire textbook with nearly 2,500 terms indexed and over 10,000 page references.

Note: All prices plus shipping and handling.
The main textbook is printed in three parts. That has to do with the company doing our printing and binding. They tell me it is too thick of a book to bind as a paperback in one or two parts. For those on a quarter system, it is just perfect--one book per quarter. If you are in a school with semesters, you will need to start a new book partway through each semester.
Click the button below and you will be taken to a separate e-commerce site if you wish to purchase more than one of the books.
