Overview

This book teaches chemistry at an appropriate level of rigor while removing the confusion and insecurity that impairs success. Prep chem frequently intimidates people; Bishop's text shows them how to break the material down and master it. The system of objectives tells readers exactly what they must learn in each chapter and where to find it. The text and superb illustrations provide a solid conceptual framework and address misconceptions. From that basis, readers learn to strategize problems and solve them in logical steps. The Examples and Exercises give plenty of confidence-building practice; the end-of-chapter problems test the reader's mastery. For college instructors and students.

Editorial Reviews

In this textbook for introductory and prepatory chemistry courses, Bishop (Monterey Peninsula College) shows students how to break down difficult material in order to master it. Other features include two chapters on unit conversions (allowing instructors to delay covering that topic and introduce elements, compounds, and chemical reactions earlier); examples, exercises, and end-of-chapter problems; and boxes highlighting interesting applications, such as innovative chemical approaches to pollution. A glossary is included. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
