First and foremost, do not pay more than $30 for this book. It is NOT worth $80, so please don't buy it for that price and then come here and rate it 1 star for how short and uninformative it is (for that price). I paid $22.95 and it's a decent investment for that.

Second, I would not consider this book to be an all encompassing guide. It is not a textbook. The math is relatively basic, but I believe that it provides a decent introduction to the kinds of math that whatever textbook you are using concurrently might assume that you already know how to do, and so glosses over. There are solutions to examples in the back, which is helpful.

The section on using computers to do these mathematical calculations is a little bit dated it seems; at least, I don't use BASIC or FORTRAN very often, and so the syntax is weird, and I think they were a bit ambitious in trying to put this section in, but keep in mind, it is not meant to teach you how to be a master programmer, or to be a complete reference guide for each of those languages.

I found the section on writing to be very helpful, because writing is frequently overlooked in science classes, and my professor was THAT guy that had all the crazy assignments, and then I worked in a research lab and this section really helped me in developing proper notebook etiquette, which not many people have past intro chem. (let me tell you, notebook etiquette made writing my thesis easier)

ok, first of all: this of a $25 book! Anyone who pays $80 is getting majorly ripped off! Hey Amazon, what gives?? That's totally bogus.

As for the book: sucks. Not work the $25 I paid. Calls itself a "survival book" but it only has the easy stuff. Hello, the easy stuff is in the $137 physical chemistry textbook (which sucked as well) that I already bought off here. I swear, I've had it with these profs who wanna make extra $$$ by writing thrown together science books.

buy this if you like to college books. pay $80 if you are stupid.
