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.

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.

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!!

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.

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.

Oh my goodness, if your desire is to pass your college chemistry class this book is a MUST! After leaving chemistry class I was a lost soul, I actually considered changing my major so that I didn't have to take this class. People, this book is GOLD, and you know the value of gold! I failed my fist quiz and it's because I didn't have this book yet, since then we've had 5 tests and my lowest grade is a "B" I'm extremely pleased! Thank you Mr. Curran, I certainly wasn't a fan of ANY science, but I now love chemistry, I would buy any book with your name on it, book is truly "God Sent"

GREAT simple chemistry book/study guide!! I'm currently working towards a 2nd degree in Nursing, and am completing some pre-reqs before he HESI and applying to a program. The last time I had a Chem class was in H.S. (almost 10 yrs ago and I remember almost failing it!). I am now in an Intro to Chem class and, again, have had such trouble keeping up with & understanding the material! I pratically failed our 1st exam.

After this book arrived, I immediately tore open the package, sat down, started reading & working out the practice problems. I have covered almost every subject from my class, since school began, and feel so much more confident in the subject just from from this evenings reading marathon than I have after 1 1/2 months of class lecture/lab/reading textbook/going to tutorials/etc. This book is 1/4 the size of my textbook! I would fall asleep reading that textbook; not so with this little gem!

I recommend this book to anyone currently in an intro/beginner chemistry class, about to start a class, or even if you're just interested in chemistry. The author makes the concepts so easy to understand, I feel confused over how I did not understand this material before I received this book!

This is not so much a review but rather a few comments. This book is very good at explaining concepts at a very basic level. So, if in your class a new concept is introduced and you have no idea what is going on, this book will get you on track. I have used this book inthis fashon and believe it to be worth the cost.

One of the negatives is that the book sometimes introduces concepts out of logical sequence. A great example is in Ch. 3 where the author talks about Quantum Numbers several pages before a discussion of electron orbitals. A student who doesn't know anything about electron orbitals will have no clue what the author is talking about with respect to Quantum Numbers.

That aside, a student using the book as a supplement to a chemistry class would probably look up "Quantum Numbers" in the index and turn to that section if they were have difficulties, rather than read the book from beginning to end.

In summery, I'm glad I have the book and I'm using it as a review guide this summer to keep thoughts of chemistry fresh in my brain.
