This revised and updated edition pays particular attention to the systematic development of problem-solving skills. To this end, the text has special "strategy" sections in the worked examples and also up-to-date end-of-chapter exercises at all levels of difficulty.
The highly praised first edition of General Chemistry stood above its competitors with its captivating writing, superior development of problem-solving skills, brilliant illustrations, and attractive design. This exciting new edition is an even more effective point of entry to modern chemistry. In addition to Peter Atkins' polished prose, a new coauthor-Jo Beran of Texas A&I-has brought innovative ideas and practical pedagogical refinements to the discussion, interpretation and application of chemical principles and phenomena. As a result, the Second Edition of General Chemistry offers the most stimulating introduction yet to the pivotal role chemistry plays in our lives. No competing textbook equals General Chemistry in the detailed attention paid to the systematic development of problem-solving skills. Chief among its many advantages to students are the special 'strategy' sections in the worked examples. Not found in any other general chemistry textbook, these sections provide a starting point to guide students in how to think about a problem, then suggest a pathway to its solution. These strategy sections remain at the heart of the new edition's approach to learning which, with the addition of many more worked examples, encourages students to go beyond the answers to understand both the processes and the phenomena that lie at the heart of solving chemistry problems. General Chemistry, Second Edition also contains a wealth of up-to-date end-of-chapter exercises at all levels of difficulty, including many that have been created specifically for the new edition. For each chapter, the first group of exercises is classified; the remainder are unclassified so that, as in an exam, students are called upon to identify strategies and applicable chemical principles. These unclassified problems provide an alternative for instructors not wanting to assign exercises by topic. As in the first edition, the solutions to all exercises have been scrupulously checked for accuracy.
