Review

A distinct and excellent publication worth recommending to biological chemists. --The Times Higher

...particularly well suited for those who want to pursue a course of study more focused on the biological sciences. --Journal of Chemical Education

An excellent text. --Christopher J. Barrett, McGill University

I am field-testing this text for a two-semester Physical Chemistry sequence. Initial impressions of the book are very favorable. In particular, I like Prof. Chang's use of several "real world" examples to illustrate important principles. My students find the math substantial but not very intimidating.

Some colleagues of mine miss the mathematical rigor found in other Phy Chem texts like McQuarrie and Levine however.

On a lighter note, the color scheme used for this text is excellent. It is just right, neither too drab nor too glaring.

Format: Hardcover
This is a good text. It is not at as high level as most other popular p-chem textbooks. If you think this text is too hard, then forget about the p-chem texts by Atkins or McQuarrie. You might want to get a copy of Physical chemistry by Ball or the one by Engel and Reid to clarify some materials. I don't think any p-chem text is necessary better than others. Each has its own strenghs and weaknesses. How well you do in this course will also depend on your preparedness to take it. Many students are not well prepared to take p-chem. Therefore they blame the textbook, their teacher, and everything they can think of in the universe and beyond for not doing well in this course.

I am a Chemical Engineering student and I purchased this book along with its solutions manual (highly recommended) and I was very satisfied the problems were worked out thoroughly and the math was not byzantine at all. I highly recommend this book

good examples, relatively easy to understand, it's a very good entrance book to physical chemistry. I didn't read the contents regarding biological science, but should be interesting also.

All the other students in my class bought used books for the same price I paid for a brand new. Fast shipping as well.
