I have to admit that this is the most interesting books I've ever read. If you want to know how the basics of life all tie together and form the world and existance around you then this is for you. This book has seriously opened up the world to me. I cannot look at anything around me like I used to. I recommend getting and reading this book solo. The way it is written makes it perfectly understandable without a teacher or professor of any kind. Everything is spelled out clearly with simple everday comparisons and examples. There are a ton of useful problems to work on to assist in cementing your knowledge in place. Seriously though I really can't think of any other book I've ever read that was more interesting than this one. Pick it up and prepare to see your world unfold in front of you as a new and chaotic, complex and beautifully organized universe.

This book is amazing. Easy to get an A in a class that uses this text. Everything that is in the book is easily understood, its unbelieveable, so easy to follow.
If you purchase the study guide you will be even better off.
Hope this is useful.

I used this text book in my Organic Chemistry class, and since I am a self-learner, I appreciate the way this text was written to be so user friendly. The diagrams and language used in the book were easy to understand, and made the very difficult topic of Organic Chem seem a little less intimidating. Overall, I was very pleased with this text book, and the price on Amazon is cheaper than anywhere else I found!

This book is great. It has made it easy to understand chemistry. It's like looking at a math book. It breaks everything down into parts and puts it all together at the end of the chapter to grasp the full concept.

Needed this book for a General Chemistry class. It does the job, was too expensive in my opinion, but over all a good book. Check with your professor to see if you can use the 2nd edition and not the 3rd, it will save you a lot of money. There is little difference between them !!

Best chem book I've ever used. Clear and concise, OChem chapters were invaluable. Used this for a college course and still love referencing it.

I am glad that my chemistry instructor chose to use this textbook. It contains detailed explanations and examples of chemical principles practiced by today's chemist. My instructor assigned many of the problems included in the chapters which were useful to further understand the material covered during class.

This was a pleasant surprise! For this particular order we paid a total of about $14 including shipping and it is sufficient for my husbands Chemistry class that listed the newer edition as the class requirement. The online code that came with it also worked for his class! This was a wonderful deal!

Book arrived in great condition. Used it for my Chem 101 class... very easy to use and the diagrams and charts are great in summarizing and organizing the material. Didn't get a 5 star only because it's a textbook that was required for my class, not a leisure product that I bought just because.
