Format: Paperback
I wish to comment about Chapter 12: The Right Chemistry since I am a chemist and have taught chemistry. This chapter is full of serious errors, some of which are detailed below:

1) p. 172: The definition of 'Molecule' is incorrect because there can be more than 2 atoms and they can be from different elements.
2) p. 181: The question in the 'Moles' section is about the mass of 4 atoms but should be about the mass of 4 moles.
3) p. 181: The last but one sentence incorrectly refers to 'halogen metals' (they are nonmetals) and to alkali metals as being much less stable than the halogens.
4) p. 182: The chemical equation for the formation of water in the 'Reactions' section may occur but is not the usual one that involves molecules of hydrogen and oxygen reacting.
5) p. 184: The statement "This means that the product of reactants has to have equal proportions of the same compounds involved in the reactants." in the 'Balancing Equations' section makes no sense because it is the numbers of atoms of each element that have to be conserved.
6) p. 184: The balanced equation in step 5 and earlier equations are incorrect because the subscripts of atoms should not have been changed, only the coefficients preceding the elemental or molecular formulas.
7) p. 185: The answer to the stoichiometry question should be 289 g CuO, not 864 g; the authors got 864 g CuO because they multiply the formula weight of CuO by 3 twice. Notice step 5 which states, "One mole of 3CuO is equal to 240 g. The proper way to solve this problem is: 65 g Al x (1 mol Al/27 g Al) x (3 mol CuO/2 mol Al) x (80 g CuO/1 mol CuO) = 289 g to the nearest gram.
8) p.

I scored 99th percentile on the TEAS with the help of this book. I also used a couple other books, but this one will give you all the information you need as well as example problems and 2 practice tests. This book rocks!

If you just need help reviewing then this book would work. However if you NEVER took a chemistry or Physics class DO NOT USE THIS BOOK! There are SOOOO many mistakes and incorrect answers that contradict what is in the reading material. If you are taking the TEAs your best bet is to buy the actual ATI test book cause they seem to actually have editors. Do your self a favor and spend the couple of bucks more and get the better book. Cause using this one only, I got a 65 thanks to their misinformation while using the actual ATI book got me a whopping 80!

----AND NO I AM IN NO WAY SHAPE OR FORM AFFILIATED WITH EITHER COMPANY! JUST A NURSING STUDENT WHO COULD HAVE SAVED MONEY! =[

Aside from having successfully completed an abundance of college-level natural science courses, I used ONLY this book to prepare for the HESI A2 nursing entrance exam (after reading reviews complaining about how incomplete the official HESI guide is), and I got more than 98% of the answers right on the test. Be aware that there are some errors in this text, such as the repeated spelling of Golgi as 'Gogli' as well as a couple of other factual mistakes and multiple incorrect answers within the answer keys at the ends of several sections, so it helps to be well-versed in the content to begin with so as to be able to spot the errors and avoid memorizing incorrect information. I would still recommend this text for preparing for the HESI, though I cannot attest to its usefulness in preparing for any of the other exams mentioned on the cover.

Was using this book and doing the end of the chapter test and after a few I relized that there are many typo in the book. The questions I would get wrong I would go back and review and more than one were correct. This is not what anyone needs in a study guide.

I bought this book because I will need to take the TEAS test prior to being admitted into the Nursing program at my local college. Let me first say that I have been a mom for the last 19 years and have spent little to no time thinking about Biology, Chemistry or Algebra(aside from helping my kids with their homework)! Knowing that these topics would be on the TEAS test, I thought it best to brush up on my skills. Initially I purchased a book(a study guide) published by ati, the company that administers the TEAS test. The problem with THAT book is that it ASSUMES that your brain remembers everything that you learned in high school or your early years of college. For me, not so much. So, I then bought this book. I would HIGHLY recommend this book for anyone that needs things put into simpler terms and explained without assuming you remember everything that you learned in earlier years. Reading through the ati guide, I began to feel overwhelmed and hopeless. This book that I am writing the review about has helped me greatly and has helped me to gain confidence on subjects quite quickly.
