Im sure its a good book even though it didn't really cover what I am learning in my Chemistry class but the one GLARING problem I had with it was the amount of Typos. Like giving me an example of Protons and electrons on the element Ag (which is silver) but yet all the numbers associated with the Ag were actually for Ar (Which is Argon) So that made things especially confusing for someone who is already struggling with Chemistry.

So, my daughter asked me to help her with her high school chemistry homework. In a panic I ran to the computer and googled chemistry homework. The webpage I found by Greg Curran was so helpful that I went out and bought the book. It was a great help. I was able to recall some of my high school and college chemistry and my daughter had a well organized, very well preesented reference book. I have found that some of our high school teachers prefer to copy handouts and have the students use handouts rather than a text. This was a great help and added so much to her grasp of concepts. My son is next in line for a chemistry class in two years. This is a book that we will hang onto.

I needed something to help prepare for the nursing entrance exam I needed HS chem, physics and math. The author's way of explaining chemistry is easy to follow and he avoids all the fancy terminology which can definitely confuse people. I never like chemistry before but by reading this book, I have such an appreciation for it because it's all around us. The author makes the subject fun and interesting to learn. Great buy for a refresher in the subject. You wouldn't even need an expensive text. All you need is this book.

I have purchased both the Chemistry and Biology 'Homework Helpers' books as supplemental materials to assist students who are struggling or are in need of review. These are wonderful materials for students who need additional assistance in the areas of learning how to balance equations, molarity, etc....Mr. Curran successfully explains areas of science that are often frightening to both students and parents. I highly recommend both books to parents and students who need to 'brush up' on specific topics.

Homework Helpers Chemistry is an excellent book easy to use and understand. Full of charts, tables and valuable knowledge, everything the beginner chemist needs to get started with ease. This book has made my learning chemistry enjoyable, and fulfilling.
