Summary

This is the book that defined the prep/intro chemistry market 35 years ago! And it's been a market leader ever since! Hein/Arena is known for its accuracy, clear no-nonsense approach, and direct writing style. Strong problem solving and carefully constructed problem sets make this book a stand-out among its many imitators.

Like previous editions, this 11E is designed for the prepatory, introductory chemistry courses which can include students from a variety of background, including: general chemistry, allied health students science education students (for elementary school teachers), to the occasional liberal arts student fulfilling a science requirement.

Author Bio

Hein, Morris : Mt. San Antonio College

Morris Hein is professor emeritus of chemistry at Mt. San Antonio College, where he regularly taught the preparatory chemistry course and organic chemistry. He is the original author of Foundations of College Chemistry and his name has become synonymous with clarity, meticulous accuracy, and a step-by-step approach that students can follow. Over the years, more than three million students have learned chemistry using a text by Morris Hein. In addition to Foundations of College Chemistry, Eleventh Edition, he is co-author of Introduction to General, Organic, and Biochemistry, Seventh Edition, and Introduction to Organic and Biochemistry. He is also co-author of Foundations of Chemistry in the Laboratory, Eleventh Edition, and Introduction to General, Organic and Biochemistry in the Laboratory, Seventh Edition.


Arena, Susan : University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign

Susan Arena has taught chemistry to students at many levels including middle school, high school, community college and most recently at University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. She especially focuses on using active learning techniques to improve the understanding of concepts in chemistry. Susan currently authors chemistry texts and electronic media, and presents workshops for teachers in suing active learning and electronic media to teach chemistry. She collaborated with Morris Hein on the seventh edition of Foundations of College Chemistry and became a co-author on the eight edition. She is also a co-author of Introduction to General, Organic and Biochemistry, Seventh Edition.
