About the Author

Patricia Amateis graduated with a B.S. in Chemistry Education from Concord University in West Virginia and a PhD in Analytical Chemistry from Virginia Tech. She has been on the faculty of the Chemistry Department at Virginia Tech for 28 years, teaching General Chemistry and Analytical Chemistry. For the past 13 years, she has served as Director of General Chemistry, responsible for the oversight of both the lecture and lab portions of the large General Chemistry program. She has taught thousands of students during her career and has been awarded the University Sporn Award for Introductory Teaching, the Alumni Teaching Award, and the William E. Wine Award for a history of university teaching excellence. She and her husband live in Blacksburg, Virginia and are the parents of three adult children. In her free time, she enjoys biking, hiking, competing in the occasional sprint triathlon, and playing the double second in Panjammers, Blacksburg’s steel drum band.

Martin S. Silberberg received his B.S. in chemistry from the City University of New York in 1966 and his Ph.D. in chemistry from the University of Oklahoma, in 1971.  He then accepted a research position at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, where he studied the chemical nature of neurotransmission and Parkinson's disease.  In 1977, Dr. Silberberg joined the faculty of Simon's Rock College of Bard (Massachusetts), a liberal arts college known for its excellence in teaching small classes of highly motivated students.  As Head of the Natural Sciences Major and Director of Premedical Studies, he taught courses in general chemistry, organic chemistry, biochemistry, and nonmajors chemistry.  The close student contact afforded him insights into how students learn chemistry, where they have difficulties, and what strategies can help them succeed.  In 1983, Dr. Silberberg decided to apply these insights in a broader context and established a text writing and editing company.  Before writing his own text, he worked on chemistry, biochemistry, and physics texts for several major college publishers.  He resides with his wife and child in Massachusetts.  For relaxation, he cooks, sings, and walks in the woods.

3.0 out of 5 stars Rent or buy used new is not worth money
By Hotaru on January 12, 2020
Bought brand new hardcover textbook hoping access code for connect would come with it but it does not come with the code you will need for your college course. That part is not included in the product description. If you need the code then you’ll need to purchase it separately ($97/one semester access only OR $133/two year access).

Quality: some pages were not cut and had unevenly trimmed pages. Otherwise looks fine so far - no damage, sturdy looking book.

Overall it’s more worth your money to purchase a used copy or just rent the book out since online access costs just as much as the book -_-

2.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Condition?
By SMH3351 on August 22, 2019
Book arrived as planned. However, book was described as "Condition: Used - Very Good .....May contain some highlighting. Supplements such as access codes, CD's etc not guaranteed.". I was surprised to find approximately a 1in x 1in area of spine missing, glue missing and peeling. I selected this based on its description.
