'This book goes a long way toward addressing the technical terms that sometimes makes chemistry impenetrable. It is set out in encyclopaedic format with a good glossary of key terms, has realistic objectives and an excellent choice of exercises' - Dr V.H. Pavlidis, Senior Lecturer, De Montfort University, Leicester 'With a mixture of teacher support and independent study, this publication should be a valuable resource to students' - Dr R.S. Maguire, Principle Officer, NICCEA Written to provide a course in 'chemical literacy', this text contains a concise coverage of core topics, assuming only a minimal knowledge of mathematics and science. It is suitable for those studying on access and foundation courses at university or college and for non-specialists on courses such as Environmental Science, Engineering or Biology, for whom chemistry is a subsidiary subject. Much of the material will be suitable also for A level and GNVQ chemistry students. Designed to be accessible and student-friendly, each chapter begins with clear objectives and has open-learning exercises to consolidate topics before the student proceeds further. The questions at the end of chapters are designed to extend and reinforce learning. To help students, working independently, answers to all exercises and problems are provided.
