Understanding over memorization.Joel Karty has dedicated nearly a decade developing a teaching approach and textbook that is organized by mechanism, promotes learning by doing, and provides students with the background and support they need to be successful in organic chemistry as well as pre-professional placement exams like the MCAT. Karty’s organization, conversational writing style, and interactive pedagogy facilitate understanding rather than memorization and place the emphasis back on mechanisms.
