Succeed in chemistry with the clear explanations, problem-solving strategies, and dynamic study tools of CHEMISTRY & CHEMICAL REACTIVITY, 8e. Combining thorough instruction with the powerful multimedia tools you need to develop a deeper understanding of general chemistry concepts, the text emphasizes the visual nature of chemistry, illustrating the close interrelationship of the macroscopic, symbolic, and particulate levels of chemistry. The art program illustrates each of these levels in engaging detail--and is fully integrated with key media components. In addition access to OWL may be purchased separately or at a special price if packaged with this text. OWL is an online homework and tutorial system that helps you maximize your study time and improve your success in the course. OWL includes an interactive eBook, as well as hundreds of guided simulations, animations, and video clips. GO CHEMISTRY includes mini video lectures and e-flash cards keyed to key topics in the text for quick, on-the-go review on your video iPod, MP3 player, and iTunes.
