Summary: Harris' new edition carries forward the features that have made this text so popular--straightforward explanations and an applications-oriented presentation, many with a biological focus--adding new pedagogy, more applications, and more examples. It is also the only text for this discipline packaged with its own CD-ROM.
  • Straight forward and student friendly writing style
  • Wealth of real-world applicat
    ions from a wide range of fields
  • Spreadsheets shows how chemists work with real data
  • A wealth of drill problems offers students many opportunities to practice what they've learned
  • Margin notes explain and amplify key points
  • Explanatory boxes highlight and expand on relevent points
  • "Big picture" approach connects material from various chapters and aspects of the field
  • New Chapter 0 walks students through the scientific method, emphasizing how it relates to chemical analysis
  • Dozens of new applications-oriented problems focus on basic, practical applications of analytical methods
  • Expanded Examples (e.g. Chapter 24, "Gas Chromatography," begins with a case study describing how, using these methods and 1,000-year-old human bones, scientists determined the diet of our ancestors
  • New "Calibration Methods" chapter (combining least squares and calibration methods in a new separate chapter, Chapter 5)
  • Putting the Pieces Together Problems ask students to integrate concepts from multiple chapters, giving them a broader perspective of how chemical analysis is done
