Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

The second edition of this best-selling text builds upon what made the book so widely adopted in the first place: student accessibility, readability, an effective problem-solving program, and flexibility. The authors understand that most students have their sights set beyond the chemistry laboratory. Thus, they have put chemistry in the context of applications and everyday life -- making the book and course student accessible. With the intent of gaining student confidence, the writing style is relaxed, friendly -- and readable for the student with no scientific background. The problem- solving program maintains a wealth of problems and worked-out examples, including McMurry's innovative ballpark questions that test the student's understanding of concepts and develop their analytical thinking skills. The authors have made the text as flexible as possible. This is especially evident in the biological chemistry chapters, where structure and function are integrated.

Format: Hardcover
This is an excellent textbook for a two semester course in General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry for Health Professions. It does a very good job of explaining the concepts of General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry. It also has excellent applications on disease processes and pathophysiology. The organization of each chapter is a plus. I highly recommend this textbook. It is number one!

This book is exactly as described by the publisher. A very readable overview of general and organic chemistry. A comprehensive study of the organic molecules and chemical processes specific to the human body.

I liked this book so much that I'm ordering a hardcover copy to replace my original paperback edition.

Used with its text the workbook probably accomplishes the task the authors intended. I give the text 5 stars for the limited role of providing a somewhat useful review of material.
In general, an omitted comma may seem a insignificant. However, like the misplaced decimal, it does carry considerable meaning.
Amazon advertised "Essential Organic and Biochemistry" next to "Fundamentals of General Oranic and Biological Chemistry". However, the cover title for the latter is "Funamentals of General, Organic and Biological Chemistry". Essentially, the "General" of the latter reads as the "Essential" of the former.
The book was inexpensive. While it had fewer pages on the Organic and Bio Chem then I had hoped, it was probably enough for my needs. Not a biggie!
Amazon is a first rate operation!
Please keep in mind that punctuation matters.

I would recommend this product to any college student who is wanting to save money and who doesn't want to get ripped off by college campus bookstores! The book I received was in the exact condition that was advertised. I would without a doubt buy books from this buyer again!

This book is a very good and comprehensive view of the basics in general, organic, and biological Chemistry. I also like the fact that the book gives many examples and problems to work with. I recommend the study guide which can be purchased separately to go along with this book as it has been a very useful tool for me in my effort to complete this course.

I'm glad I checked Amazon instead of buying this book from school. I saved a lot of money. The book came super fast and was in like-new condition, better than I expected!

The book was used for 90% of my class. It well written for the student with little exposure to chemistry. The pictures and diagrams could have better depicted the subject matter. The price was $40 less than what my college bookstore charges. Great value.
