Chemistry Study Guide

If it wasn't for this book I wouldn't have passed. It gives you so many extra exercises to help you understand the principles behind chemistry. Definatly goes hand in hand with the hardcover.

Excellent for true conceptual understanding

A previous reviewer has his facts wrong --- both Silver and Russo have PhDs in chemistry. Here's a blurb about Silver and Russo from the publisher: Steve Russo is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Chemistry at Cornell University and the Director of Organic Laboratories. Prior to that, he was an Assistant Professor at Indiana University. While there, he designed and implemented a state-of-the-art computer resource center for the undergraduate chemistry curriculum. He received his B.S. in chemistry from St. Francis College and his Ph.D. in physical organic chemistry from Cornell University. He is a member of the American Chemical Society and has been a recipient of the Dupont Teaching Award, Clark Teaching Award, and the Amoco Distinguished Teaching Award. Mike Silver is a Professor of Chemistry at Hope College. He received his B.S. in chemistry from Fairleigh Dickinson University and his Ph.D. in inorganic chemistry from Cornell University. He is a member of the American Chemical Society, past president of the West Michigan Section, and a member of the Council of Undergraduate Research. He has received the Camille and Henry Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Award for excellence in teaching and research and the Provost's Award for Teaching Excellence. Currently he is involved in collaborative research with the Dow Corning Chemical Company. In my experience, this is one of the few chemistry textbooks which explains WHY as opposed to simply presenting isolated formulas and factoids for students to memorize. It is terrific for visual-spatial learners and for students who want the big picture as well as the details. The organization of the textbook is logical, with one subject leading into the next.

A very good introductory book on basic chemistry

This book presents a excelent introduction to chemistry. There is no economy of space.The concepts are very well explained, in a conversational style. It is hard for you not to understand. Also it is very well and beautifully ilustrated.I hope there will be a review to include more subjects.
