Book Description

April 15, 2011 1601631634 978-1601631633 2
Homework Helpers: Chemistry is a user-friendly review book that will make every student--or parent trying to help their child feel like he or she has a private Chemistry tutor. Concepts are explained in clear, easy-to-understand language, and problems are worked out with step-by-step methods that are easy to follow. Each lesson comes with numerous review questions and answer keynotes that explain each correct answer and why it's correct.

This book covers all of the topics in a typical one-year Chemistry curriculum, including:
• A systematic approach to problem solving, conversions, and the use of units.
• Naming compounds, writing formulas, and balancing chemical equations.
• Gas laws, chemical kinetics, acids and bases, electrochemistry, and more.

While Homework Helpers: Chemistryis an excellent review for any standardized Chemistry test, including the SAT-II, its real value is in providing support and guidance during the year's entire course of study.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty helpful May 18, 2013
By Audrey
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The author explains most things very clearly. I sometimes wish things were organized a little differently or introduced more explicitly for the sake of clarity. Also, there are some errors that can make things confusing. (Like an answer that doesn't match the question asked, or an incorrect formula here and there [The formula for carbonate on p 147 is incorrect.]) Mostly a helpful book, though, especially if used alongside actual class coursework.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best! May 10, 2011
By kath222
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I ditched my $165 text book and lecture notes and just used this because it is so well written. The author is a very good teacher. He gives you little tricks to help remember things too. I taught myself chemistry with this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Homework Helpers June 6, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I picked up this book without ever having taken a chem class in my life. I did all the practice problem sets and tests and by the end, was prepared to take Gen Chem at a university. The explanations are clear, and the author is great at translated abstract ideas into everyday concepts. Please make a companion volume that's just more problem sets (with answers). The crucial info is also in bold and in green, so it's easy to find. Also, tables throughout are very helpful. The answers keys are at the back of each chapter, not after each problem, so you have a chance to solve on your own. And the author walks you through the steps of how to get the right answer, instead of just giving you a number, so you get to learn why you got it wrong (if you did!). HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Helped me Ace the Praxis May 15, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was a very helpful review tool for a college Chemistry major studying for the Praxis II exam in Chemistry, There were very clear and inventive analogies and the practice problems were very helpful. The book may be a better fit for a high school student, rather than for someone at the college level, but this book covered the fundamentals well and I was very pleased with the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic learning tool November 23, 2013
Format:Paperback
This is a fantastic learning tool! I bought it to help my son in high school, and I got concepts I didn't get in college when I was a biochemistry major! Lot's of "Aha!" moments for me, but it is written so clearly that I believe my son will understand the concepts from reading this book. I HIGHLY recommend this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars 4 November 6, 2013
By M. Ivey
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is much like the Homework Helpers Physics -- great for beginners and in conjunction with real textbooks, but not as a standalone. Both are just too short and miss some vital topics, and don't go into enough depth on some. Very good buy, though, if used correctly or just learning the basics for the sake of learning.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for reviewing chem June 5, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It's been a couple of years since I've taken Chem and I decided to review it over summer so I bought this book. So far, this book covers a lot of things that you do in gen. Chem such as balancing equations, conversions, sig figs., etc. I bought the dummy's version last summer and it did not help at all. I would recommend this book for reviewers.
