Good book, just I don't think that I would have bought this without needing to for a class. The author (like most authors of chemistry textbooks) makes little effort past the first few chapters to make the material easy to consume. Good organization of introduction of concepts and great graphics. I sold this book back to Amazon when I was done with the class because there was nothing exceptional about its use as a reference book. One of the best things about this book is that it had a fantastic periodic table in the front cover (had orbitals) that was a life saver on some assignments. Buy this book over any Zumdal book any day, that (those) author is impossible to learn anything from.

The overall lay-out Of Chemical Principles was clear, easy to follow and comprehend. There were a lot of example problems in the text and some answers to the odd problem assignments at the end of each chapter.

This book has great explanations and worked problems, and a perfect introduction to inorganic chemistry. The material is detailed yet described thoroughly using simple language.

The typos for the problems/answers in this textbook and solutions manual I find quite distracting. It's hard to build the confidence in such a complex subject like this when the typos have you constantly questioning if your comprehension of the subject. This textbook needs to be re-edited and reissued.

Other than that, the content is explained fairly well, but those typos really degrade the quality of this book.

I have to admit, I didn't use this textbook much during the school year. Which made me very surprised when I received an email almost a month after I returned the book, as instructed, stating that the binding was damaged and I was being charged $135! The book is in exactly the same condition it was when I received it (including the sticky notes and highlighted text that was left by the previous owner). I was hoping to use online textbook rentals to save some money, which is already quite tight as a college student. I have now payed more for this book than if I had just bought it in the first place, and was charged in the middle of the summer, when I had not budgeted to be spending this kind of money on textbooks. I definitely will not be using this seller again if they do not accept books in the same condition in which they distribute them and drop ridiculous charges on their already "frugal" customers.

This had very descriptive text and good examples. The numerous problems in the back of the chapters helped me with studying for exams.

Got it for a great price and the best part is that I am able to use it for three of my chemistry classes, that's half of them! Buying my books from Amazon has made it less painful, especially since most of the time it has been cheaper to buy the book(s) than rent them .
