I had free access to this book but it is such a good resource that I decided to get a copy of my own. Explains chemistry superbly well.

Shout out to UCLA freshman taking CHEM 14A. Work hard, Bruins!

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.

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 .

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.

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