CliffsStudySolver Chemistry is for students who want to reinforce their knowledge with a learn-by-doing approach. Inside, you’ll get the practice you need to learn Chemistry with problem-solving tools such as

  • Clear, concise reviews of every topic

  • Practice problems in every chapter — with explanations and solutions

  • A diagnostic pretest to assess your current skills

  • A full-length exam that adapts to your skill level

A glossary, examples of calculations and equations, and situational tasks can help you practice and understand chemistry. This workbook also covers measurement, chemical reactions and equations, and matter — elements, compounds, and mixtures. Explore other aspects of the language including

  • Formulas and ionic compounds

  • Gases and the gas laws

  • Atoms

  • The mole — elements and compounds

  • Solutions and solution concentrations

  • Chemical bonding

  • Acids, bases, and buffers

Practice makes perfect — and whether you're taking lessons or teaching yourself, CliffsStudySolver guides can help you make the grade.

I bought this for a first year college biological science chemistry course. It was better than my text book ($110) in every way. It was easy to read and there were lots of problems with worked out solutions, then a bunch I had to do myself. I did not find any errors or mispelled words. My teacher liked the book too and told other kids to get it. It saved me in chemistry. I wish it covered more. If there were mistakes in the book they are gone now.

I recently purchased this book as a refresher in preparation for a Chemistry certification exam and was VERY disappointed. I found 10 mistakes in the first 200 pages, proceeded to stop working out the problems because the book had many calculation errors, and still found 7 more mistakes before I decided to quit using the book all together (around page 300). This book serves the purpose of pointing you in the direction of which topics to look over, but cannot be trusted for accurate information in many cases.
