I think that the book can help students pass better than any other chem. book. The only thing that I don't like is that there are answers after the questions. The cover isn't all that appealing either.
this book saved me when i decided to be daring and take my first chem class in the summer. my peers told me I wouldnt pass the class because i had no prior knowlegde of chem. how wrong they were. i passed with flying colors. if i couldnt grasp the concept from the teacher i used the book to pull me threw. i highly reccomend the book if youve never took chem before.
If you are just entering your first chemistry class, this is a perfect book. It explains the concepts simply, then repetitively reviews them, without being boring. I used this book to review nomenclature and bonding for an advanced class. I definitely recommend this book to anyone that needs basic chemistry knowledge.
