About the Author

Nivaldo Tro is a Professor of Chemistry at Westmont College in Santa Barbara, California, where he has been a faculty member since 1990. He received his Ph.D. in chemistry from Stanford University for work on developing and using optical techniques to study the adsorption and desorption of molecules to and from surfaces in ultrahigh vacuum. He then went on to the University of California at Berkeley, where he did postdoctoral research on ultrafast reaction dynamics in solution. Since coming to Westmont, Professor Tro has been awarded grants from the American Chemical Society Petroleum Research Fund, from Research Corporation, and from the National Science Foundation to study the dynamics of various processes occurring in thin adlayer films adsorbed on dielectric surfaces. He has been honored as Westmont's outstanding teacher of the year three times and has also received the college's outstanding researcher of the year award. Professor Tro enjoys surfing, biking, being outdoors with his family, and reading good books to his children. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This book: Principles of Chemistry: A Molecular Approach Hardcover: 888 pages
Publisher: Prentice Hall; 1 edition (January 15, 2009)
Language: English
ISBN-10: 0321560043 ISBN-13: 978-0321560049

There is another book with a very similar title
Chemistry: A Molecular Approach (Hardcover)
1081 pages
Publisher: Prentice Hall; 1 edition (December 1, 2006)
Language: English
ISBN-10: 0131000659
ISBN-13: 978-0131000650
Product Dimensions: 10.9 x 8.6 x 1.7 inches

Be careful as which book is required by your college/university. The "Principles of Chemistry" book is newer, but has been shortened by 193 pages. This means that some material has been eliminated from the 2006 book.

These two books have been bundled into other confusing packages. To avoid confusion and possibly ordering the wrong book, pay attention to the title difference, "Principles of Chemistry:" versus "Chemistry:...". And also the picture of the book cover page is very helpful in distingushing one book from another. Buying the bundles, "with the Solutions Manuals" seems to be cheaper. Most instructors realize the Internet Access packages are designed to nickel and dime students, and therefore do not recommend/use them.

The price of this book is on the high side. I paid about 186 dollars for the combination of the thicker 2006 book and the solutions manual package from Amazon. College textbooks should not be this expensive. The price of books is an unfortunate and unnecessary barrier to educating young people, and fight it by selling your own books directly to other consumers to avoid middle-man rip off.

Professor Tro is a dedicated educator and his book should be good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for Chemistry students May 6, 2010
By Iris M.
Format:Hardcover
I took 111 and used this book. It is a fantastic book with clear, good examples. My teacher used the slides and I can say that I did well in chemistry and understood everything.

The book has an answer section for odd problems and a glossary. You will love this book.

I saved some major cash by buying this book online compared to purchasing it in the school book store at JCC in Louisville KY.
I am going to try and purchase all of my books from Amazon in the future.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not a beginners chemistry book September 8, 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I bought this book for my Inorganic Chemistry class. I like it, but think it could be written in a more step-by-step fashion, teaching all the basics before building up to the hard stuff. It works perfect for those who are already familiar with chemistry, but for those who have not ever been introduced to it, I would recommend they try another book.

3.0 out of 5 stars High school level. November 28, 2013
By GiG
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Not the best text. It covers basic material and not much else. I suppose it would be alright for the standard high school college prep class, but I would not expect a university to use it. It seems free from errors, so I suppose I could give it that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very well written. October 26, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book is well written and easy to understand without "dumbing down" the content. Good examples that make you understand Chemistry. Good amount of text vs sidebar info to keep you reading. Good use of questions with answers to test your reading of sections. Very nice binding, paper and size for a textbook.Thank you! I bought the older version because it was inexpensive and covered the same material, i.e. Chemistry. My daughter is using a newer version of this book at one of the top 5 engineering schools in the US.
