I find this book very well written and easy to understand.

A textbook should show you multiple ways to solve a problem....not just solve it one way then ask you variant homework questions that it never teach you how to solve.

I should have just bought it from the publisher it would have been cheaper.

This chemistry textbook is superior because it explains not only chemistry concepts but detailed steps of the math you need to know. The examples and problems are not only designed to teach the math but to educate you about chemistry by experience, i.e., the different elements and compounds and their properties. This chemistry book was written to perform a service, with the student in the forefront of the writer's mind.

This textbook is very clear in presenting topics, breaking down chapters into sections, and focusing on core concepts. The figures in the book are high quality, and 3D graphics are helpful in illustrating complex shapes.

My only desire would be for more solved problems in the chapters.

I'm going to be honest, I would much rather shoot myself in the foot than re-take a chemistry class because science is not my best subject. However, I had to have chemistry 1 and 2 for my BSN so I suffered through them and managed to pull B's in both classes. If you are using this book for your chemistry class and you are not scientifically gifted, I highly recommend you buy the student solutions manual. Just know that it only works out the even problems from the book but it does help you regardless of what questions it works out. Good luck to all of those who are taking chemistry.

Format: Hardcover
I find this book very well written and easy to understand. The questions for every chapter are quite helpful. My school sends us the answers and steps on how to do these problems. So the solutions are not in the book.

However, this book,like someone said, does not really offer step by step instructions on how to solve the problem. They give you formulas. Therefore, you need to go to lecture for that.

Overall, chemistry has tons of formulas that one has to "memorize", but I find that once you see what they are asking us in the problem, than I just list them and try to figure out what formula(s) work best.

I wish everyone luck.

This book contains excellent charts and content, no space is wasted in this book when it comes to the lessons. The tables and charts have information presented in a comprehensive way which can be transformed into smooth studying. One thing I did not like about this book was the chapter questions, a lot were worded in a confusing way. They used words that they didn't use in the chapter, I found myself going to the teacher many times to have the questions reworded. I would recommend this book only if based on information because the questions aren't very good for reviewing the content.

I dislike on principle textbooks, especially the kinds with a high number of editions, because that's really just more profits for the publisher, but this book was alright. wasn't great, wasn't terrible. Decent layout, solid explanations, etc.
