I bought this text off of Amazon because it was 5 dollars cheaper than at the school store. Plus I could get it delivered for free instead of fighting the crowds to grab a book.

Anyway, what I did not know is that the book the school store sold came with the access code for Blackboard Connect (which is required for my class, it may not be for others). This book did not. The code costs about 30 dollars. So check with your professor before the class starts, and try to find an edition with the access code card instead of over-paying like me.

I do like the textbook though. Just heed my warning so you don't have to over-pay.

This book was purchased for my Chemistry in Our World class. It was more expensive than it needed to be. Also, it had little trade-in value. Although it says on the cover, "Applying Chemistry to Society" my professor covered very little practical chemistry. Therefore, I felt that the book was wasted. If you have an organized teacher this book will be interesting. Otherwise, it is little more than an expensive paperweight you will never reference.

Personal gripes aside, the book was clean and very nicely put together. Although, it can be hard to follow I believe that it is a decent chemistry book when followed correctly. However, in my case it was chemistry taught out of context and it did not help me to learn.

I would recommend this book to everyone who is interested in chemistry in an applied way. It is not the classical chemistry book. It considers practical issues and what is needed to know about chemistry in order to understand them. I teach and train teachers of young students in science, and this type of knowledge makes the connection with their students more interesting, and helps everybody to understand why chemistry is important for society.

Format: Paperback
This book is in the Distance Education category but has nothing to do with distance education. It is a chemistry texbook. Because there are so many books miscategorized in this category, it makes it incredibly difficult to meaningfully shop the Distance Education category for books. It's like having a ton of cookbooks on the shelf of auto-repair. Please remove all of these textbook and language books from this category. Thank you.

I was not happy to find out that I still needed to spend another $60 to purchase what I already thought was coming with the book.

This is a required textbook for my chemistry class, I believe I could have purchased a loose leaf version instead.
