About the Author
Nivaldo Tro is Professor of Chemistry at Westmont College in Santa Barbara, California, where he has been a faculty member since 1990. He received his Ph.D. in chemistry from Stanford University, for work on developing and using optical techniques to study the adsorption and desorption of molecules to and from surfaces in ultrahigh vacuum. He then went on to the University of California at Berkeley, where he did post-doctoral research on ultra-fast reaction dynamics in solution. Since coming to Westmont, Professor Tro has been awarded grants from the American Chemical Society Petroleum Research Fund, from Research Corporation, and from the National Science Foundation to study the dynamics of various processes occurring in thin layer films adsorbed on dielectric surfaces. He has been honored as Westmont's outstanding teacher of the year three times and has also received the college's outstanding researcher of the year award. Professor Tro lives in Santa Barbara with his wife, Ann, and their four children, Michael, Ali, Kyle, and Kaden. In his leisure time, Professor Tro enjoys mountain biking, surfing, reading to his children, and being outdoors with his family.

I love this book! It laid out what I needed to learn in a way that wasn't too confusing. As someone with a mild interest in chemistry, I now have a much larger curiosity with it. I'm doing well with this book, since my professor's teaching method just isn't my style.
I do like the hardcover, too. What's even better about this book, unlike the Webassign bundles, the publisher does NOT put some ugly border on the book. They also leave the in-book exercises, which that... other publisher stripped out. Good on you, Prentice Hall.
Same content of the physical book. Has links in it, so if the text refers to, say, Table 1-1, you can click on the text and it takes you there. Nifty! Also, for every bold key term in the book, there is a link to a pop-up glossary, which is great. The one downside is that the glossary is missing information, mostly numbers that won't render correctly. For example, the definition of the atomic mass unit is "A unit used to express the masses of atoms and subatomic particles, defined as 1/12 the mass of a carbon atom containing 6 protons and 6 neutrons." However, the e-glossary does not include the "1/12," making the definition wrong. Good to be aware of.
It gives instant feedback. It's not a professor replacement, but if you really know what you're doing, usually the guidance is enough. However, if you need more help, you really need to look at the book or get a professor to help, which is where many people get frustrated, especially if they waited until the last minute (guilty!).
Overall, get excited if this is one of your required supplies. This, while expensive is for more than one semester and is fairly affordable for a college book.
I hope this helps...
