Study Aids 

Here are some links to additional problems, slide shows on spectral interpretation, and miscellaneous other items to help with your understanding of organic chemistry.

These links are an assortment of spectral interpretation study aids.  The first few display structures and their associated IR or NMR spectra.  You should study these to learn the molecular characteristics that are responsible for specific spectral features.

These links are an assortment of reaction mechanisms, study problems, etc.
