If you have a class that requires this textbook, drop the class.

This is the second worst textbook I have had the displeasure of every purchasing, and it only beats out the first by a slim margin because the other than more typographical errors than this.

You don't -learn- when reading this textbook. The information isn't structured in a way that is conducive to learning. This is the kind of textbook you look at after you understand everything within it, and want to refresh your memory on that one equation you suddenly find yourself needing, without explanation of its background nor in many cases the constants that make it up.

Unless you have an absolutely stupendous teacher, in which case the purchasing of this book is pretty much worthless sans the chapter problems that might be assigned, you will NOT learn anything.

As one of the other reviews has stated, this is a terrible book if you want to learn electrochemistry. Electrochemical Methods: Fundamentals and Applications by Bard and Faulkner is a vastly superior text book and explains concepts much clearer than Hamann. Hamann does go a little bit more in depth into thermodynamic concepts but Bard and Faulkner is the way to go.

I use this textbook for teaching an undergraduate electrochemistry class. The text covers most of the necessary topics and recommends IUPAC quantities, units, and symbols.

A good book if you want to know a little more application of electrochemistry. It doesn't have a nitty gritty detail of theory but it was helpful for me to get ideas about some practical applications of the area.

This book explains a lot, fill with countless of interesting formulas. However, some of them are a bit confusing to me. But overall, the best echem book i have ever had.

Very good, claer, educational and simple book. I did not have any backgroind in chemistry, but this book is ready to teach whoever regardless his/her background
