I am of the opinion that most good classes focus more on the instructor than on the textbook. That being said, a solid textbook is useful and should help develop intuitions to solve problems. That's kinda where I like this text.

There are many different problems from each given chapter that an instructor could assign, but the practice problems here seem genuinely interesting because they're varied in their approach. I've come away from each session of homework feeling as if I actually learned something because I had ample opportunity to practice the ideas through the homework.

I've had other textbooks where I only paid attention to them to look for facts that weren't mentioned in lecture. This is one of the few textbooks I actually go through looking for knowledge. Pretty sweet. That being said, some of the explanations in the book aren't very good and I had to reach outside of the book a few times. Overall I'm glad I bought a copy.

I rented this book and it is exactly what I need for chem class. Although it isn't required I am really enjoying and find it a big help with my class.

I bought this for my chemistry class through college. It was a great book and very informative. It really explained things thoroughly.

It was a good copy. The only problem was that there was no Chapter 20. It only went to chapter 19. The hardcover version goes up to Chapter 20. Not sure why this one didn't..

Hate this book. I only bought this because it was a required text for my intro to Chem class. I still need to Google most of the info the text lays out since the explanation was wordy. .

Excellent textbook. It's a really good guide on how to teach/learn chemistry in a relevant way.
