Format: Hardcover
This was my primary textbook for Grade 12 Chemistry. It covers the post-ALCHEM 10 & 20 material in sufficient depth to prepare anyone for university chemistry. (ALCHEM is now called "Exploring Chemistry in Our World" by Charles Wolf, ISBN: 0920008917; ASIN: B001DYCG5E)

As you can see from the table of contents, it would suitable even today for both first & second year high school chemistry. I would have liked to see a bit more depth in some areas - acids and bases for instance. But considering this is a 1974 book its held up pretty well vis-a-vis modern books. It doesn't have glossy pages or flashy colors. It's black and white & uses a third color for emphasis as needed.

Another thing that's excellent are the 53 experiments interspersed throughout the entire book. Having completed a good number of these, I can say they're very well thought out and would complement any book not just this one.

A suitable follow-up college book to Turner/Sears would be "General Chemistry: Principles and Structure" by Brady and Humiston or "Chemistry: The Central Science" by T. Brown.
