Fully updated for the new MCAT, these 4 Video DVD cover all the most important Organic Chemistry topics in the necessary detail. Organic Chemistry from basic concepts to mechanisms you need to understand for the new MCAT will be found in almost four hours of clear lecture-style teaching.
Dr. Laurie Starkey brings in her love of organic chemistry and helps students learn through visual models and real world examples. Focusing on Chemical Structures, she covers topics from Alkanes to Aldehydes and Amines. This course is crucial for students who wish to excel in Organic Chemistry in order to satisfy their degree or pre-medical requirements. Lessons go in depth and are followed with numerous examples similar to those found on organic chemistry exams and qualifying tests.
With triple majors in Chemistry, Mathematics, and Classics, Professor Raffi Hovasapian returns to teach his favorite subject, AP Chemistry. His discussions on the topics are very detailed to insure students understand what is happening at the atomic level. Topics include everything on the AP Chemistry exam including Stoichiometry, Gases, Equilibrium, Acids & Bases, Thermodynamics, and Electrochemistry.
Chemistry is defined as the study of matter and its properties. With regard to this definition, the roots of the study of chemistry can be traced back to more than one ancient civilization. Most notably, the Greeks and Chinese each independently postulated thousands of years ago that there must be a small number of elemental substances from which all other things were created as admixtures.
"In centuries past, kings and emperors appointed alchemists to discover, in their primitive furnaces, the "philosopher's stone" which would turn base metals into gold. Today, the conquest of nuclear energy is the modern philosopher's stone. This book, simply and nontechnically, (sic) explains to the layman the great discoveries of chemistry–from early alchemy to the cyclotron."
