GENERAL, ORGANIC, AND BIOLOGICAL CHEMISTRY makes the allied health major's Chemistry classtime more efficient and productive. Clear explanations, engaging and useful visual support, and powerful teaching tools combine to make this textbook the ideal choice. Author Stephen Stoker ensures appropriate preparation for biochemistry by revising the biochemistry chapters first and then tailoring the general and organic sections to support that presentation. Early chapters focus on fundamental chemical principles while later chapters build on the foundation of these principles, developing the concepts and applications central to organic and biological chemistry. Stoker also appropriately restricts the coverage of mathematics to only what is necessary, and can now be purchased with OWL (Online-Web-based Learning) for the first time.

Meet the Author

Stephen Stoker of Weber State University in Ogden, UT, has taught the gamut of introductory chemistry courses, specializing in GOB, for the past 30 years. Weber State has a very large Health Professions school, and GOB is geared at students with little or no experience in chemistry (notably Allied Health and Nursing majors).
