This best-seller, now in its Eighth Edition, makes chemistry exciting to students by showing them why important concepts are relevant to their lives and future careers. The new design, digital images, photos, Career Focus features, and macro-to-micro art enhance the new edition while it retains the many features that have made the book so successful. The writing, as always, is exceptionally friendly. Each section contains sample problems that develop students' critical thinking skills. This edition also contains more conceptual problems than ever before and has been redesigned to accommodate new styles of learning and teaching with a wide variety of pedagogical tools. The book is suitable for the one-semester allied health sequence. 2003 WINNER! The Text and Academic Authors Association awarded a 2003 McGuffey Longevity Award to Timberlake's text.
