Overview

Reach your peak with Hein/Best/Pattison/Arena!

Now updated and revised, Hein, Best, Pattison, and Arena’s highly successful text provides a strong foundation for a future career in allied health or nursing—a foundation built on fundamental principles and solid problem-solving skills.

Recent developments and advances in the field: The new edition is revised and updated throughout, particularly in the area of biochemistry. Cutting-edge topics include cancer chemotherapy, programmed cell death, and herbal dietary supplements.

Strong general chemistry coverage: Hein, Best, Pattison, and Arena offer the most thorough general chemistry coverage in any general, organic, and biochemistry text.

An emphasis on problem-solving skills: Throughout, the focus is on problem solving over rote memorization. The text provides a variety of exercises, including new practice exercises and end-of-chapter exercises, as well as challenge exercises and worked examples.

A clear, engaging, and highly accessible presentation: The authors skillfully anticipate areas of difficulty and pace the text accordingly. The new edition is even more student friendly with improved explanations, a new design, and an updated illustration program with new molecular art.

Real-world relevance: The text relates chemistry to everyday life. Several new Chemistry in Action essays discuss the impact of chemistry in a variety of applications.

Additional support for students:

  • eGrade (online): homework management and additional opportunities for practice.
  • Interactive LearningWare (online): A step-by-step problem-solving tutorial with over 40 interactive problems.
  • Student Solutions Manual (0-47-141139-3): Solutions to all end-of-chapter questions & Exercises.

Meet the Author

Morris Hein is professor emeritus of chemistry at Mt. San Antonio College, where he regularly taught the preparatory chemistry course and organic chemistry. He is the original author of Foundations of College Chemistry and his name has become synonymous with clarity, meticulous accuracy, and a step-by-step approach that students can g=follow. Over the years, more than three million students have learned chemistry using a text by Morris Hein. In addition to Foundations of College Chemistry, Eleventh Edition, he is co-author of Introduction to Organic and Biochemistry. He is also co-author of Foundations of Chemistry in the Laboratory, Eleventh Edition, and Introduction to General, Organic and Biochemistry in the Laboratory, Eighth Edition.

Leo R. Best taught chemistry for twenty-four years at Mt. San Antonio College, He has been a collaborator and co-author with Morris Hein since the first edition of Introduction to General, Organic, and Biochemistry. He is also co-author of Foundations of Chemistry in the Laboratory and Introduction to General, Organic, and Biochemistry in the Laboratory.

Scott E. Pattison lives in Muncie, Indiana, where he is a professor of chemistry at Ball State University. He maintains active, current research involving zinc metabolism that provides laboratory experience for both undergraduate and graduate students. A dedicated teacher at the university level for twenty-seven years, his primary area of instruction is biochemistry; however, he greatly enjoys teaching medical/nursing chemistry and general chemistry. Scott became a co-author with Morris Hein on the third edition of Introduction to General, Organic, and Biochemistry, and he brings his knowledge of students, subject matter, and current research to the text. In addition to his professional career, he volunteers in local schools from preschool through high school, providing extra science experiences for tomorrow’s university students.

Susan Arena has taught chemistry to students at many levels including middle school, high school, community college and most recently at University of Illinois, Urban-Champaign. She especially focuses on using active learning techniques to improve the understanding of concepts in chemistry. Susan currently authors chemistry texts and electronic media, and presents workshops for teachers in using active learning and electronic media to teach chemistry. She collaborated with Morris Hein on the seventh edition of Foundations of College Chemistry and becomes a co-author on the eighth and subsequent editions.
