    Save your money. ZERO stars

    This is the most error-filled book I have ever read. It was one of three GRE Chemistry books in my University's bookstore, and because of the established name of TPR, I decided to purchase this one. Bad mistake. I found myself doubting the very legitimacy of the material due to the sheer number of errors. I'd say about an error every 5 pages or so. Terrible! If I were you, I'd just pull out my old general, organic and physical chemistry textbooks. A much better deal to learn it that way. And at least the material will be right.
