5.0 out of 5 stars A must-have item to supplement the text May 9, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This study guide is a must for extra practice in order to feel confident at chemistry. There are a ton of additional practice problems (with answers) so you know if you have mastered a particular subject area or need more help. The textbook to accompany this only provides answers to odd numbered questions, so this study guide is essential in order to get the needed practice to ace the course. I highly recommend this study guide!

2.0 out of 5 stars General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry October 31, 2009
Wish book had more examples, only a few given per concept. Has almost a hundred problems per chapter to work on, however you have to keep flipping to back of book to find solutions to problems to see if you are grasping the concept. Even numbered problems do not have solutions listed which makes it even more frustrating especially when there is a unique concept only listed on even problems. The book should use some more of the problems as examples throughout the reading or have a study section where answers are readily available to some of the problems. This would be much more helpful while studying and learning the concepts.
