4.0 out of 5 stars Good introductory text 5 Nov. 2007
By Rx Dr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Chang's Chemistry, 9th edition, is a well written text that is good for a freshman-level general chemistry sequence. For the most part, the text is easy to understand and does not require re-reading. Sections on thermodynamics and molecular orbital theory, however, were confusing. I would not recommend the accompanying solutions manual; it is overpriced considering it only provides answers to odd-numbered problems, which are already in the back of the text. Overall a good book, which I would recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clearly written College Text 24 May 2008
By M. Walls - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Chang's 9th edition has been reviewed by the College Board as one of the approved AP Chemistry texts. The text incorporates the complete AP Chemistry curriculum

"Following the tradition of the previous eight editions, the newest Raymond Chang Chemistry is still readable and logically organized; thus it is very appropriate for AP Chemistry." -College Board Review

The newest edition has improved readability and has provided extra help in problem solving. Key equations, answers, and sample problems are shaded and set apart for easy review.

The example problems now include well-integrated strategies that clarify the calculations so that students can understand the worked out solutions. The carefully crafted strategies distill the chapter ideas into concise sentences that focus the reasoning involved in solving the example problems.

You could get a complete chemistry course by reading going over the example problem strategies and solutions.

The text has a clean flow of ideas without distracting clutter. Each new edition has honed this textbook for precision in learning. Every paragraph's meaning is clear, and each sentence is there for a reason.

Too many textbooks have become bloated with excess padding in each new edition. Chang's text kept its ranking as one of the top college textbooks by keeping current, providing excellent explanations, and staying lean through careful editing.

This textbook is very good with explanations. You can actually study this book by yourself with little or no help and still understand the material.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the real deal. 5 Mar. 2014
By John A. Raymond - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I'm a geologist who has spent a lot of time developing software. Lately I've been delving back into petrology, and found I needed to brush up my chemistry. Amazon reviews steered me to this book - especially the ones dissing the book for being too hard. Yep, it's the straight stuff alright, clear and concentrated. I'm picking up everything I forgot and then some. If you want it full strength, you'll like this.

Great book for general chemistry. I am currently taking Chem 2 and the book is easy to follow along and has a good amount of practice examples throughout the chapters that help a lot.
