INTRO TO ORGANIC CHEMISTRY NOTES
To help you to keep track of updates, there are a few things that you can do;
- Follow updates posted on the blog. These blog posts flag updates and usually give a little detail about the changes, too.
- Note the time-stamps shown below, of the most updated versions of the PDF files, and check to see that the document you are referencing has a matching time-stamp (the time-stamp can be found in the footer of the PDF file).
- Follow me on Twitter and the site’s Facebook page for the latest updates about the site and materials.
