    A thorough review of high school chemistry

    This book was a real help in preparing me for the SAT-II exam in chemistry. (I got a 730!!) The language is clear and the explanations and problems were given in detail. There are a number of typos but I was able to get an errata sheet from the author. Once these were fixed, the book was fine.

    terrific!

    This book has helped me so much with honors high school chemistry and explains everything so clearly and the convenience of having 40 practice questions per chapter really helps me truly understand the concepts of each chapter. I recommend this book to anyone taking chemistry!!

    essential guide for chemistry

    I have used this review book since its first edition both for h.s. chem. and as a review in my AP chem classes. I don¿t think there is a more thorough or clearly written review book than this one on the market. For students preparing for the SAT II in chem, the book needs be supplemented with additional questions of the type used on that exam. Dr.A.N.Lefkowitz

    Trash

    The are too many typos and mistakes in the book for it to be worth anything. It takes me longer to figure out if the book was wrong than actually finding my own mistake. Worthless. Barrons generally puts their books out too fast, before anyone truly proofreads them properly, hence an inordinate amount of mistakes.
