I am a retired Chemistry Professor. My graduate work was in Inorganic and Physical Chemistry with a thesis on Organosilicon compounds. This book is not one from which I would try to learn Inorganic Chemistry. Better would be to buy a good "freshman chemistry" (General Chemistry) textbook and follow that with a more advnced Inorganic Chemistry textbook. This book is poorly organized, has numerous content "inaccuracies", and confusing generalizations. Sorry, but this is not the book for a beginner and the more advanced student will find fault after fault in the presentation.

I am an undergraduate student using this book to prepare for the Chem GRE, who will not have taken this class before the GRE date.  Even though I have not yet taken this class, there are ten errors that even I can figure out with a little Wikipedia, and I'm only 80 pages in.  Very frustrating having to recheck so much information!
