5.0 out of 5 stars Simple, good explanations 23 Jan 2014

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is a bit simpler than I expected, but it made for excellent bedtime reading and filled in a few of the gaps I haas in my understanding - definitely worth the purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of, if not, the BEST school books I've ever owned throughout my life 10 Feb 2008
By Mister Doe - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is the BEST!! it's format is extremely easy to understand because it tells you what you need to know and then right after it has fill in the blanks about the concepts it covered so basically it tell you something, then has you answer a question on the concept to help you remember it. HIGHLY recommended for Biology students...I'm really struggling to understand my biology course because the first 6 chapters of biology deals with chemistry so this is a life saver.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good book for review 6 Nov 2008
By Atheen M. Wilson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I enjoy reading up on the sciences, and periodically I review my anatomy-phys, chemistry, physics and mathematics. I found this book and decided it would be a good way to review both organic and inorganic chemistry.

An introduction to Chemistry for Biology Students is a superb book for review. It is in the time honored programmed learning format first developed and widely used in the 1960s. Each page has a small bit of information and questions based on it with answers to the questions immediately available in the margin of the page. With immediate feed back the student learns about and corrects their mistakes before moving on to the next bit of information and its questions.

The book covers a lot of ground: inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry and biochemistry. Obviously in a book of only 287 pages, and with much redundancy and reinforcement, none of the topics is discussed in any depth. It is a good review but no substitute for a more detailed text on each of the categories.

2.0 out of 5 stars Wait! 7 Aug 2009
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Before buying this book you need to know that it is set up entirely as a test review; questions with answers only. No explanations are given for answers or even a review of basic concepts. If you want a refresher on basic concepts this book is not what you are looking for.

2.0 out of 5 stars Buy the bound version! 25 Jun 2010
By Suzy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm sure the bound book is easy to read and easy to use. The Kindle version requires you to move back and forth between questions and answers. If you accidentially hit the wrong key, you go back to the beginning of the chapter or the next chapter. Plus, the Kindle version does not have the Periodic Table included --(it's in the front cover of the bound book) -- what chemistry book doesn't have a Periodic Table? Kindle textbooks are probably good for English and history but not for chemistry.

This is one of the best educational books I have ever come accross in my entire life. The answers are on the side of the page that you are doing the questions. He teaches by asking. Its a perfect book. More than 5 star!!
