For all those who thought they had substantial mathematical skills and overall capacity for learning chemistry (and realized they were sorely mistaken by the third lecture), THIS BOOK IS FOR YOU. I am a reasonably intelligent person and a really good student, but my ego shrank to infinitesmal proportions when I tried chem in preparation for medical training.
Goldberg's written word sounds like you're sitting in a lecture, only clearer. Don't give up, just get the right way to learn it. Goldberg's writing is a good start.

8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Chris Haynes on December 11, 2003
Format: Paperback
I decided to buy this book while I was enrolled in a general chemistry course, in order to get more practice at solving word problems and to gain better insight at how to do so. This book presents any type of word problem that you are likely to face in a general chemistry class ( stoichiometry,concentrations,gas laws,thermochemistry,electrochemistry,equilibrium,colligative properties, and thermodynamics), and describes how to solve it along with explanations of the concepts involved.
Each section starts with a short description of the theory behind the problems to follow so you gain an understanding of the chemistry behind the problem. Afterward, serveral word problems of that type are fully worked out so a full understanding can be gained. Each chapter concluded with numerous supplementary problems followed by the answers. Highly recommended.

It's worth buying this book if you only have one problem to find a solution for. It's easier to understand than a college chemistry book and has lots of shortcuts. I did word searches to find solution possibilities. My professor didn't make an attempt to explain how to solve density problems. This book explains the way and how in addition to explaining the method to approach when solving chemistry problems. Without this book, I wouldn't have a clue as to what my Chemistry teacher was talking about.
