    1. I am begging anyone using Klein's Organic Chemistry textbook to get their hands on this solutions manual. The solutions are scrupulously presented, and they almost always address all of the questions I encounter while working out the problems. Often, they provide additional information that I may not have been thinking about while working the problem. Even if I get a problem right, I almost always come away with a better understanding after viewing their solutions. I have seen my fair share of g [...]
