As a chemistry major in University of Nevada, Reno, I have taken a course from Dr. LeMay (one of the author) - he is a fabulous teacher as much as he is an author. I used his book in high school AP chemistry course, which prepared me well for the undergraduate level first year chemistry class. We used a different textbook for that course (Chemical Principles by Zumdahl), which was definitely not as good as Brown-LeMay-Bursten. For high school AP chemistry or 1st year college chemistry, I would recommend this book in a heartbeat. It is an indespensible tool for grasping the basic concepts of chemistry. It is also a good reference to keep around for those who wish to dive into 'deeper' chemistry.

I ordered this book for my daughter for college. She stated that is very detailed and interesting. It has helped her in her studies.

Although it is described and priced as a "comprehensive media package", Barnes and Noble sells only the textbook. There is no media package and no access code. Both must be purchased separately from Prentice Hall. Customer service at B&N will not reimburse for their advertising error.

Explains everything, gives great practice problems that are included for almost every type of question with variability. Great to review with. Includes a list in the front for chapters and sections included in AP cirriculum, have not used cd yet for virtual labs. Includes answers for some problems in back of book, which is helpful in reviewing material. GREAT BOOK!

I'm currently taking chemistry in college and the book we're using is terrible. THIS book, however, has saved my life. It explains things in an orderly fashion, it doesn't jump around, it goes straight to the point, the examples are great, and it actually makes chemistry fun to learn. I highly recommend this book to AP students in high school and to undergradutes in college if they want to do well in their chem.

I really recomend this book for first year chemistry. I am using it to study for the AP Chem and it is very useful. I sugest buying the lecture notes while your at it.

Some textbooks have lucid explainations, despite the fact that they are from the 50s with paper that is already yellowing. Others are beautiful, clear, concise, with computer generated images and colors, but lack that beauty in the text itself. This book --you guessed it-- has both. It is excellently written, with apt metaphors introducing difficult concepts, conversational style in general, and interesting examples that bring the world of chemistry home. The new 8th edition is also a well-designed text, with clean and crips images, sharp colors (and a variety of them as well) that stand out, lists of critical information, and worked-out problems that make reading it a joy. The CD contains movies of experiments that illustrate what the book is talking about, and the website offers further resources: so I suggest you get it new, or at least with the CD and key. This is not just my opinion, but nearly the entire summer '01 chem class (~60 persons) at CUNY BC agrees.

Textbook was very hard to follow and understand. From a college student's perspective, this book didn't clearly identify and explain the formulas and applications that were used in class. If you are required to purchase this book for class be prepared to search for an additional book for help. I needed this class to fill a requirement for my major. Chemistry isn't my major and this book was required for a 200 level class. I have a 4.0 gpa and this book was hard to follow.

This book is hard to understand.I use it as a junior in high school, and some of the problems they give, there are no examples or explanations for. The main reason you have a textbook for class is so that you can refer back to this when you cannot understand your teacher. I think if you have this book, you will need an additional review book on he side.
