    Formating problems with the e-book version

    As a high school chemistry teacher, I am a huge fan of books like this one that take the complex concepts and makes them more accessable for non-experts. The problems, at least with the nook book version is the formating. Arrows in reactions are replaced with boxes and the notations for diagrams are stretched out and do not fit properly on the pages.

    If you want the book, and I believe the content is more than worth the purchase, buy the physical book, not the nook book.

    Great for a refresher or quick review!!! Highly Recommended!!

    This book is not only great for students that are just starting out but also for those who need a refresher to higher level courses and parents who need to help their children with homework. Everything is broken down into a easy but fast learning read. This is something that you could use over and over again between chemistry classes (Chemistry II, Organic Chemistry, etc.) Great buy!!!
