Overview

A whole new twist on General, Organic and Biological Chemistry!

Introducing a unique approach, with a whole new twist designed for the specific needs of the General, Organic, and Biochemistry course! Kenneth Raymond's General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry offers a concise, manageable, highly effective alternative with an integrated Table of Contents. Now, students can get to the biochemistry topics earlier, better appreciate how the course relates to careers in allied heath, and see connections among these three areas of chemistry.

Here's how Raymond's approach works:

1. Integration.

The text presents interrelated topics from general, organic, and biochemistry in the same or adjacent chapters. This highly integrated approach reduces excess review, and enables students to explore biochemical topics earlier in the course. The result is a briefer, more focused, and more engaging text.

2. Applications.

Raymond takes a very applied approach, filled with real-life examples that effectively connect the chemistry to future careers in health-related fields. Chapter-opening vignettes focus on the link between chemistry and everyday topics.

3. Relevance.

Online videos and articles from ScienCentral connect the chemistry presented in the text to current events.

4. Brief and accessible.

Concise, readable chunks of text make the book accessible for a wide range of students.

5. Lots of support--online and in the text.
* eGrade Plus online resources: Homework management, a complete online text, videos, interactive problems, and more--all in one convenient website. eGrade Plus is included free with new copies when the instructor adopts the eGrade Plus version of the text. www.wiley.com/college/egradeplus
* A review of essential math in the text and on the eGradePlus website.
