This book handled all 3 of my concerns: first, it gives my kid an opportunity to see chemistry concepts and problems explained in a different way than what he got in school; second, it's an easy-to use reference for homework; and last, it serves as a refresher for me (his reluctant tutor who learned Chemistry many years ago). I've used other "Dummies" books in the past, and found them all decent in covering their subjects, same for this edition.
Read this in combination with Mr. Causey videos on YouTube and you'll be golden!
If you are good at chemistry, but need a refresher, I would not recommend this. Buy Chemistry Essentials for Dummies instead. I also have that book for myself and it is a 1/4 the size of this book and it hits the MAIN points quick to click off your light-bulb! Hope this helps!
I would like it better if the book was organized in a better manner. Not that it was hard to follow or anything, but I think that the chapters could be arranged in a much better order overall. Or maybe I am just biased towards the IB syllabus structure.
The book was really good anyway, and I recommend it to anyone wanting to learn some Chemistry, no matter what age.
