Now the book itself is well written.

I bought this book at the Stanford University Bookstore as a reference text for quantitative analytical chemistry.

I just took a class that required this textbook, and I used the 6th edition instead of the 7th, and there was only one difference.... in the 6th edition, 2 topics were seperated into 2 different chapters, and in the 7th the two topics were combined into one chapter... If your a student and need this book for class, save yourself some money and buy the 6th edition. The word and homework problems are identical.

My "Quant" class used the 6th edition. After it was over, I bought the 7th edition (the university I attend rents textbooks to students). The editions weren't that different (except a rearrangement of a few chapters and addition of a new chapter). The 7th edition has 663 pages of reading and problems. The back of the book contains a long list of references and comprehensive, easy-to-use appendicies.

I use it often to refresh my memory of analytical chemistry.

This gem will continue to serve Chemistry students (myself included) well after their first analytical chemistry class is over.

So, you're considering either buying or adopting this text for intro analytical chemistry? Good choice!

This is the easiest, most straightforward, book on the market for students. It's been that way through many editions. It was a breath of fresh air (in comparison to Skoog) when it was first published in 1982.

Your other choices are "Fundamentals of Analytical Chemistry" by Skoog et al.(ISBN 0534417965) and "Analytical Chemistry" by Gary D. Christian (ISBN 0471214728). Can also use the book by Day & Underwood.

Skoog is good it's just that he can't match Harris for clarity.

Christian doesn't change much. The end-of-chapter problems are usually just re-numbered. It's OK, though.

Fortunately, whichever you choose, none can be considered deficient.

One thing I don't like about these books: Why do they include all this material on instrumental analysis? The advanced/Instrumental texts do a much better job with these topics anyway. The extra chapters make the intro books needlessly heavy.

The first course analytical books should just stick to the basics like acid/base/complexometric/redox titrations, gravimetric analysis, sample prep., extractions, etc.

----------------------------------------------------

Daniel Harris (along with Bertolucci) has also written a true classic in the field of molecular spectroscopy: "Symmetry and Spectroscopy: An Introduction to Vibrational and Electronic Spectroscopy". Get that too for your advanced phys chem courses.

Its a necessary book for me. Its fairly basic but a good resource to have. If you are taking this class at any college, make sure you kept you Gen Chem book because this has pretty much been a review of Gen Chem for the first semester.

This is a good book...I can't think of any complaints that I had with it. It gave good examples and comparisons throughout the chapters for better understanding of the material.

The text is an easy read, with a lot of statistical tables to reference for lab write ups. One of the better chemistry books I have ever had to use.

College text books, you know, "don't get me started". My son's professor required this "earlier" edition and in so doing saved us a boat load of money and provided our son with the information he needed. I'm sure there are one or two sentences that could be upgraded, but we're fine with 99.9879% in a book he may never need to return to.

I brought the 7th because I'm cheap and I didn't what to dish out an extra $100 bucks for the 8th edition. My professor said we'd be perfectly fine with this edition. (and from what I've heard, there isn't much difference b/w them.)

Now the book itself is well written. The author writes in simple informative sentences that do a decent job of engaging you as a reader. At the end of each chapter, you are presented with "terms to understand", a "summary" and some problems. (Note: the publishers were actually nice enough you give you the answers to both odd AND even problems). There are also helpful side notes that point out important information or extra detail about a topic on the page.

There are a FEW problems with this book that do set it back to only 4 stars. First of all, and most importantly, is the color palette. The majority of the book is printed using only black, grey, and blue. That includes all the diagrams, pictures, and whatnot. This isn't too much of an issue because most of the diagrams and graphs are simple enough too understand without the need of color. It just makes the book a little more dull in my opinion. On a side note, chapter 17 does include a 12 page insert that shows some cool, glossy and COLORFUL images.

My only other problem with this book is the paper quality. It feels slightly better than regular notebook paper. If you like to highlight as you read, I advise you to be careful. Don't press to hard or use very dark colors.

Overall, this textbook should make your life a lot easier if you put the time and effort into it.
