Book Description

1 Feb 2012 0073402680 978-0073402680 11
Chang's best-selling general chemistry textbook takes a traditional approach and is often considered a student and teacher favorite. The book features a straightforward, clear writing style and proven problem-solving strategies. It continues the tradition of providing a firm foundation in chemical concepts and principles while presenting a broad range of topics in a clear, concise manner.

The tradition of Chemistry has a new addition with co-author, Kenneth Goldsby from Florida State University, adding variations to the 11th edition. The organisation of the chapter order has changed with nuclear chemistry moving up in the chapter order. There is a new problem type - Interpreting, Modeling, and Estimating - fully demonstrating what a real life chemist does on a daily basis. The authors have added over 340 new problems to the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars empowering chemistry textbook 2 Oct 2012
By Tina R Mahler - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This chemistry textbook is superior because it explains not only chemistry concepts but detailed steps of the math you need to know. The examples and problems are not only designed to teach the math but to educate you about chemistry by experience, i.e., the different elements and compounds and their properties. This chemistry book was written to perform a service, with the student in the forefront of the writer's mind.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great presentation, wish there were more examples worked out 10 Feb 2013
By David - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This textbook is very clear in presenting topics, breaking down chapters into sections, and focusing on core concepts. The figures in the book are high quality, and 3D graphics are helpful in illustrating complex shapes.

My only desire would be for more solved problems in the chapters.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not one of my favorite subjects... 5 Aug 2013
By Megan R - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I'm going to be honest, I would much rather shoot myself in the foot than re-take a chemistry class because science is not my best subject. However, I had to have chemistry 1 and 2 for my BSN so I suffered through them and managed to pull B's in both classes. If you are using this book for your chemistry class and you are not scientifically gifted, I highly recommend you buy the student solutions manual. Just know that it only works out the even problems from the book but it does help you regardless of what questions it works out. Good luck to all of those who are taking chemistry.
4.0 out of 5 stars Easy to understand 20 April 2014
By Unknown - Published on Amazon.com
I find this book very well written and easy to understand. The questions for every chapter are quite helpful. My school sends us the answers and steps on how to do these problems. So the solutions are not in the book.

However, this book,like someone said, does not really offer step by step instructions on how to solve the problem. They give you formulas. Therefore, you need to go to lecture for that.

Overall, chemistry has tons of formulas that one has to "memorize", but I find that once you see what they are asking us in the problem, than I just list them and try to figure out what formula(s) work best.

I wish everyone luck.
4.0 out of 5 stars Nice content and charts! Chapter questions worded confusing! 26 Dec 2013
By paige - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book contains excellent charts and content, no space is wasted in this book when it comes to the lessons. The tables and charts have information presented in a comprehensive way which can be transformed into smooth studying. One thing I did not like about this book was the chapter questions, a lot were worded in a confusing way. They used words that they didn't use in the chapter, I found myself going to the teacher many times to have the questions reworded. I would recommend this book only if based on information because the questions aren't very good for reviewing the content.
