this 'guided' approach doesn't do much guiding... it leaves many questions unanswered, has many misprints that passed editing, and only provides exercises but no reference to check your 'critical thinking' answers. the book was very useful, only because it was required for my chemistry class and we performed 2 exercises everyday in groups of 3-4. in some instances, the group effort allowed for us to come up with good reasoning for our answers and helped us to spur imagination. for someone who is struggling with the concepts, this book is helpful. this book is NOT designed for individual use but rather for groups of 4. you can do the exercises alone, but, if you are struggling with the concepts, your efforts will be in vain.
