Summary

ALERT: Before you purchase, check with your instructor or review your course syllabus to ensure that you select the correct ISBN. Several versions of Pearson's MyLab & Mastering products exist for each title, including customized versions for individual schools, and registrations are not transferable. In addition, you may need a CourseID, provided by your instructor, to register for and use Pearson's MyLab & Mastering products.

 

Packages

Access codes for Pearson's MyLab & Mastering products may not be included when purchasing or renting from companies other than Pearson; check with the seller before completing your purchase.

 

Used or rental books

If you rent or purchase a used book with an access code, the access code may have been redeemed previously and you may have to purchase a new access code.

 

Access codes

Access codes that are purchased from sellers other than Pearson carry a higher risk of being either the wrong ISBN or a previously redeemed code. Check with the seller prior to purchase.

Author Biography

Andrew Cooksy is a chemistry professor at San Diego State University, where he teaches courses in physical and general chemistry and carries out research on the spectroscopy, kinetics, and computational chemistry of reactive intermediates in combustion and interstellar processes. He attended the Washington, D.C. public schools before receiving his undergraduate degree in chemistry and physics from Harvard College and his Ph.D. in chemistry from the University of California at Berkeley.
