However, the book does offer a wide variety of useful practice problems that help prepare you for the exams and ACS final. Unfortunately, though, some of the answers are wrong (in the back of the book) or not even there (you'll need to get the solutions manual for those), which is extremely frustrating after spending 3 hours on one problem only to find out that you did it right the first time! C'mon Engel, get your stuff together!
- Laid out pretty well
- cheaper on amazon
Cons: - ***So many errors I've lost count, answers for the questions are constantly incorrect, derivations are sometimes wrong.
- Not many good examples
- Terrible explanations
Overall: This book takes an already difficult class and further complicates it. Questions in physical chemistry aren't typically very difficult if you do enough of them, mostly straight forward. But the book provides few good examples. If you get this I highly recommend the solutions manual as well (despite it only having 1/4 of the answers. Good to reference for similar problems.
