One of the better written reference guides I have read in a long time. This is a difficult subject, but the author managed to make it easy to understand and follow, and related the concepts to the real world. I would highly recommend this guide to someone wanting to brush up on chemistry (as I did), or as a secondary source to a elementary chemistry class.

This book explains BASIC chemistry. It won't be helpful to your studies if you're taking a college level class (AP Chem or beyond). Instead of recommending this book, I recommend "Barron's AP Chemistry: Advanced Placement Examination". It explains everything from basic chemistry and beyond. It's like an abridged version of your textbook. Also, "Barron's AP Chemistry: Advanced Placement Examination" costs less.

    I like this book but on page 166 of my 2003 copyright, the formula for aluminum sulfate is calculated
    incorrectly.  For a new student to be confronted with errors like this is problematic. You carry the doubt of
    accuracy from that moment on. I doubt Moore is responsible for this; possibly a graphic artist or typist
    made the error. My point is, instructional material of the self help nature needs to be absolutely accurate.
    This is all the student has to rely on for instruction.  As a teacher, I have found numerous errors in
    text-books, such as incorrect cut lines explaining photographs. The publishing industry needs to do
    better.
    As for this book, A minus.
