It's better than having no solution manual, however it does skip steps.

I WOULD DEFINITELY get this if you are doing problems in Chemistry, A Molecular Approach. Believe me, I tried it with no solutions manual and got headaches from trying to figure out some of the cumulative and challenge problems at the end of the chapter. The solutions only cover the odd problems, which is good enough. Steps are skipped in some solutions, but you can figure it out from there if you spend some time breaking down the solutions, this in turn will help you with other problems. Write notes in the solutions manual with a pencil to help you while you are breaking it down. For some numbers that seem to come out of nowhere, type those numbers into Google, sometimes they are constants or chemical standard notations that haven't been covered yet at that point in the book. Sometimes you can also use the text index to look up unfamiliar notations by topic and other things that have not been covered yet at the chapter you are at.
