Summary

Basic Chemistry is written in a style and language that students without science backgrounds can understand. This best-selling introduction to the basic principles of chemistry draws on the student's own experiences through analogies and cartoons to learn difficult concepts. The clear, systematic, thinking approach to problem solving has also been highly praised by reviewers and users alike. Basic Chemistry, Alternate Edition, covers only chapters 1-17.

Features

  • NEW - Countdown section in each chapter, consisting of five review questions keyed to previous material provide students with a basis for material introduced in the new chapter.
