Often a lack of understanding of basic concepts and how they fit together is the major reason students do poorly in chemistry class. This book is for anyone who needs help understanding the most difficult chemistry concepts and tools that will be encountered in a typical high-school level chemistry classes. This book can also be used to review the basics before starting a college introductory or organic chemistry class. It is a useful supplement to the class textbook and gives a unique perspective on the subject. Whether you are taking chemistry for the first time in high school, have a child who needs help with homework, or just want to find out more about chemistry, this book can help. Topics include The Atom, The Mole, Scientific Notation, Significant Figures, Unit Conversions, Bonding, Chemical Reactions, and Solubility. Problem-solving advice, homework tips, and test taking skills are also included.

Chemistry: Ap Edition

by Steven S. Zumdahl (Author), Susan A. Zumdahl (Author)
List Price: $206.95  

Technical Details | Add To Wishlist | All Customer Reviews

This fully updated Ninth Edition of Steven and Susan Zumdahl?s CHEMISTRY brings together the solid pedagogy, easy-to-use media, and interactive exercises that today?s instructors need for their general chemistry course. Rather than focusing on rote memorization, CHEMISTRY uses a thoughtful approach built on problem-solving. For the Ninth Edition, the authors have added a new emphasis on critical systematic problem solving, new critical thinking questions, and new computer-based interactive examples to help students learn how to approach and solve chemical problems--to learn to think like chemists--so that they can apply the process of problem solving to all aspects of their lives. Students are provided with the tools to become critical thinkers: to ask questions, to apply rules and develop models, and to evaluate the outcome. In addition, Steven and Susan Zumdahl crafted ChemWork, an online program included in OWL Online Web Learning to support their approach, much as an instructor would offer support during office hours. ChemWork is just one of many study aids available with CHEMISTRY that supports the hallmarks of the textbook--a strong emphasis on models, real world applications, visual learning, and independent problem solving.
