FUNDAMENTALS OF ANALYTICAL CHEMISTRY, EIGHTH EDITION is known for its readability combined with a systematic, rigorous approach that characterizes this classic text. Extensive coverage of the principles and practices of quantitative chemistry ensures suitability for chemistry majors. These award-winning authors include applications throughout industry, medicine, and all the sciences. The text's new design and wealth of new photographs by renowned chemistry photographer Charlie Winters serve to reinforce student learning through dynamic visuals. Reflecting the increased emphasis of spreadsheets as a tool in analytical chemistry, this new edition adds an additional chapter, new problems and a new supplement, EXCEL APPLICATIONS FOR ANALYTICAL CHEMISTRY, that integrate this important aspect of the study of analytical chemistry into its already rich pedagogy. In addition, the INTERACTIVE ANALYTICAL CHEMISTRY CD-ROM, packaged FREE with every new text, enhances conceptual understanding through hands-on integrated multimedia interactivity.

    When Will the Next Edition Come Out????

    This book needs to grow up. It is old and had been out of date for awhile. You should totally use this book and enjoy it, the way you enjoy listening to your grandfather tell you about how they did things when he was around.

    The problems are relevant for the most part but the writing style is a drag. Still it gets the job done... slowly and with a lot of effort on your part
