This book would have been pretty helpful if it wasn't for constant errors such as Mass "Number: 1, Atomic Number: 1 Is Chlorine" or " Sulphur= Atmic Number 16, Mass Number 32, Number of Protons 16, Number of Electrons 16, Number of Neutrons 12". I'm sure you can all see that the Hydrogen is the one which has an Atomic Number of 1 and it is number 1 on the Periodical Table of Elements, not Chlorine. And Number of Neutrons in Sulphur is 16 not 12. That along with many other mistakes, either the question is wrong, or the answer is wrong. I think that the editor should have done his job and actually edited this book.

Chemistry Workbook for Dummies is hard for people who are not very good with math/algebra. It is not very organized and goes very fast. Chemistry for Dummies book on the other hand is fantastic and I could not have passed chemistry without it. Really makes chemistry fun instead of painful
