“The Summary of Reactions” section (pp. 335-336) lists all the reactions that are described in the unit, and provides references to the appropriate sections in the textbook. Probably the most effective way of determining how much you have remembered and understood is to attempt some of the additional problems. We cannot over-emphasize the fact that the best way of achieving success in an organic chemistry course is to attempt lots of problems. You may not want to try all of these problems at this stage. One possible approach is to do some of them now, some more when you are preparing for your first examination, and the remainder when you review the whole course in preparation for the final examination. At this point, complete the first assignment, which you will find in the “Assignment Drop Boxes” section on the course homepage, and submit your work to your tutor for grading. You may also wish to make arrangements to write the midterm examination through the Office of the
Registrar—see “Procedures for Applying for andWriting Examinations” in the Student Manual.
When you are confident that you understand the material presented in Unit 9, please complete Self Test 3. You should now be almost ready to write your midterm examination (Units 3-9). You can prepare for your midterm examination by:
1. reviewing the objectives of each section, making sure you can achieve each one.
2. reviewing the feedback from your tutor on Assignment 1.
3. reviewing Self Tests 1-3.
4. writing the practice midterm examination.
