I highly recommend studying chemistry, but with all due respect to Mr. Whitten et.al., I definitely cannot recommend trying to get this book from here. It was incorrectly listed as available used, and my order was subsequently cancelled. They did have the title new but refused to substitute it for me to cover their mistake. After a few days of not acting on my question, they offered me a small discount, later questioned it again, just before handing me to a supervisor that finally told me that they are now sold out and the online listing that a new book is still available for shipment is incorrect. I don't think I need to say more about their customer service, I'll let you respected review readers focus on chemistry again. 5 stars for Whitten, no stars for this bookstore.
