Book Description

March 1, 2000 1891389068 978-1891389061 3rd
Hailed by advance reviewers as a kinder, gentler P. Chem. text, this book meets the needs of a one-semester course or a full-year course in physical chemistry. It is an ideal choice for classes geared toward pre-medical and life sciences students. Or, as stated in a May 2001 review in Journal of Chemical Education, this text meets these students where they are and opens the door to physical chemistry from a perspective they can appreciate. Physical Chemistry for the Chemical and Biological Sciences offers a wealth of applications to chemical and biological problems, numerous chapter-ending exercises, and an accompanying solutions manual. Well known for his clear writing and careful pedagogical approach, Raymond Chang has developed yet another masterpiece in chemical education.

4.0 out of 5 stars Initial Impressions June 27, 2005
By Nestor
Format:Hardcover
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars good text November 14, 2005
By athens
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

5.0 out of 5 stars wonderful book May 3, 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
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.
