About the Author

Nivaldo Tro is Professor of Chemistry at Westmont College in Santa Barbara, California, where he has been a faculty member since 1990.   He received his Ph.D. in chemistry from Stanford University, for work on developing and using optical techniques to study the adsorption and desorption of molecules to and from surfaces in ultrahigh vacuum.   He then went on to the University of California at Berkeley, where he did post-doctoral research on ultra-fast reaction dynamics in solution.  Since coming to Westmont, Professor Tro has been awarded grants from the American Chemical Society Petroleum Research Fund, from Research Corporation, and from the National Science Foundation to study the dynamics of various processes occurring in thin layer films adsorbed on dielectric surfaces.   He has been honored as Westmont's outstanding teacher of the year three times and has also received the college's outstanding researcher of the year award.   Professor Tro lives in Santa Barbara with his wife, Ann, and their four children, Michael, Ali, Kyle, and Kaden.  In his leisure time, Professor Tro enjoys mountain biking, surfing, reading to his children, and being outdoors with his family.

Students that are looking for an inexpensive version of the hardcover should purchase this book. The Mastering Chemistry code is included. You'll need a big binder to put this in, but otherwise I do not see a problem with it at all. I purchased this version of the hardcover because the hardcover was way too expensive (around $300+) at my campus bookstore and they did not have an inexpensive version of the hardcover at all. I was not willing to spend all my financial aid money on 2 or 3 books. The campus bookstore can be a HUGE rip-off. So, next time you go to buy books for your classes, check the price differences between your campus bookstore and items on amazon. Sometimes, you can rent for less at the bookstore or even lesser on amazon.

I hope this helps...

I ordered new book and it came the next day in good package box. Two corners were squeezed but it was in the plastic wrap with the access card in the back also in the plastic wrap. There was no receipt for some reason but nothing was missing. Price is $50 cheaper than school book store but I will trade it back after two semesters for a gift card so it will end much affordable. I bought it for $242.17 on 8/19/2013 and price dropped the next day, but I am neither complaining nor returning the book. Access code works and it will end after 18 months with the ebook. :)

Before we get into the qualities of the book, ill share with you some background to qualify my review:

Background Info:
- I am a college student who took beginning college Chemistry last semester.
- This book was required by the instructor.
- MasteringChemsitry was also required, and it did in fact come with the book.
- I bought the hardcover version.

The Goods:
The book is clean, crisp, and sturdy. If you bought the hardcover version, you will most likely NOT damage the structure of the book,
(unless it's cosmetics; i.e. a scratch on the cover or rip of a page). The layout of the book is like any textbook, table of contents, index, chapters 1-13, etc. The figures and tables are really nice, all of them have an in depth description of what they are, throughout all the chapters.
The text is a nice font, and is quite readable.

The.. No-So Goods:
Although the book is laid out quite nicely, reading through each chapter was personally just so boring. I have read about Mr.Tro and how
good of an author and professor he is, and thus I was, at first, excited. However, this text just was not hitting a note inside my intellectual interest. I like chemistry, it is quite fascinating. But, the book wasn't stimulating. In the words of the great MIT Physics Professor, Mr.Walter Lewin: "Teaching should be about uncovering the material, not just covering material." This book was just covering the material. I didn't find it stimulating. However, this is my personal opinion, you may think otherwise.

The Bottom Line:
- If you think you can get through your chemistry class without the book, you more than likely right. But talk to other students, and
consider you previous exposure to chemistry.

It doesn't have any Masteringchemistry access code. So if you really need access code for the class, don't but it. Amazon doesn't give any guaranty for access code.
