Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The chapters dealing with titrimetry are fairly straightforward and, in the opinion of this reviewer, one of the strengths of the text. Specifically, the majority of the problems are well-explained to the student and the problems in the back of the text are helpful, especially with the increasing difficulty of the problems as one proceeds through their completion."

"The authors' do a good job of making this text both readable and engaging. I would like to think a student could sit down with a piece of paper, a calculator and pencil and work through most of these chapters in 1-2 hours with good comprehension. I enjoy the level of activity this book uses in terms of engaging you with interesting problems or real world examples."
