I am also a chemistry student and I found the book to be rather easy, but that is because the text is very clearly written with good presentation and concise wording. It is certainly a good place to start in trying to understand an environmental problem, especially if the readers background in chemistry is only on a general and limited organic level.

Environmetal chemistry is a very helpful book for studensts in environmental chemistry studies. But as a pure chemistry student i find some parts of the book too easy, even boring at times, specially the chapters on organic environmental chemistry.On the other hand the chapters on physical environmental chemistry are very good and contain challenging problems.

This is an excellent book for self study. It does an amazing job illustrating the multitude of chemical processes that are at play in the atmosphere, lithosphere, and hydrosphere. The problems at the end of each chapter are really there to help one master the theoretical applications of envrion chem, and may be difficult to work out on your own. Otherwise this is a great book if you just want to ascertain a greater understanding.

This text was required for a Water and Wastewater chemistry class, but the information contained in it, far surpasses what was needed for class. I kept this book as I can see myself using it again in the future.

A very good undergraduate level textbook for Environmental Chemistry. Graduate students and faculty looking for a reference should get something more along the lines of Manahan's text, which goes into much more detail.

I am no Chemist. I actually bought this book for my Russian friend from Moscow that I will meet up with this summer. I must admit. One of my books I bought went to the wrong address, so I bought this book from this seller. This book look so new and smelt so new!! I will have to disgard the other book from the other seller, and keep this book! The book came quickly, the seller was very kind. This book is new and everything is intact. I am sure my friend will be very happy!

I originally purchased this book to evaluate for potential use in my training classrooms. While it would be an excellent book for some of the long term classes, it is impractical for short refresher courses or for use in any type of grassroots training. I recommend this book for any environmental professional who works with the chemical industry.

This book was used for my upper level Environmental Chemistry class for my bachelor's degree. The text in this book was very clear and topics were easy to understand. The author did an excellent job blending science with readability. The book arrived on time and in excellent condition. I did not trade it back in or sell back at school. I now use it as a reference in the environmental testing industry.
