I found the book a little lacking as opposed to "The Complete Idiot's Guide to Chemistry" and "CliffsStudySolver Chemistry." I will not be suggesting "Chemistry Essentials for Dummies" to my class.

I know the textbook and the instructor are intimidating to some chemistry students. They are learning a new language and way of seeing the world. These "helper" books need to connect to what the textbook and instructor presents, in fact overlap. "Chemistry Essentials for Dummies" leave a gap for the struggling student.

I bought this book really late into my semester to help me pass my Chem class. I should have ordered it a lot sooner. I ended up failing the class by two points, but this book made the difference. So now when I retake the class in the fall, I am prepared.

Excellent, this book really helped me.I took a chemistry course that is usually 14 weeks in 6 weeks and was lost. This book put chemistry in plain language that made sense. I would recommend it to anyone taking a basic chemistry class.

This is a great review book, however if you've never taken chemistry it will break you in gently. It makes it very easy to understand!

I have to take the American Chemistry Society General Chemistry Exam for my chemistry class, so I need to review all three quarters of the general chemistry series. This book is great! It is a great refresher and it is not at all dry, like my chemistry textbook. I love the little jokes the author put in here and how the topics were made relatable using real life examples. This is a great book! I highly recommend it! I'm glad I'll have it to review for the MCAT in a few years too!
