The sixth edition ofGeneral Chemistrycontinues the tradition of presenting only the material that is essential for a one-year general chemistry course. It strikes a balance between theory and application by incorporating real-world examples; helping students visualize the three-dimensional atomic and molecular structures that are the basis of chemical activity; and developing problem-solving and critical thinking skills. Although the sixth edition incorporates many impressive features, such as macro to micro artwork, animations correlated to the text, and hand-sketched worked examples,General Chemistryis still 200 to 300 pages shorter and much less expensive than other two-semester textbooks. Dr. Chang's concise-but-thorough approach will appeal to efficiency-minded instructors and value-conscious students.
