Does anyone know if we have to know all the functional groups listed in the organic chemistry book? Or just the ones in the course reader?

I believe only the functional groups listed in the course reader will need to be known. Dr. Lavelle didn't emphasize the other ones (like thioether and phenol). Hope this helps.

Although we only need to know the coursereader ones, it would be a good idea to look at some of the other ones not in the course reader. For instance, if they were used in the textbook practice problems because he likes to use those.
