covers more in detail what chemistry is about
has many formulas and periodic table included inside the book
took me awhile to find it but here they had the best deal too
ideal for the people who enjoy having the physical book instead of the eBook who usually comes with the owl that the course also asks for

i needed book for a class i'm taking this quarter and book came extremely quickly. I'm glad they understand textbooks should be sent promptly. Now I can focus on the hard part of class and exams. I would purchase from them again and I recommend them to others.

I got a good deal on the book, but I don't really care for how this is written. I usually dedicate a great deal of time in my courses by reading the chapters, and this book is very... wordy? I don't know how to describe it, but I feel many of the concepts aren't clearly defined and while history is important many of the ideas are riddled with little factoids that may be interesting, but aren't relevant in a general chemistry class.
