Packed with the information, examples, and problems you need to
learn to "think like a chemist," CHEMISTRY: AN ATOMS FIRST APPROACH
is designed to help you become an independent problem-solver. The
text begins with coverage of the atom and proceeds through the
concept of molecules, structure, and bonding. This approach,
different from your high school course, will help you become a good
critical thinker and a strong problem-solver -- skills that will be
useful to you in any career.
