A Concise Introduction to General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry

General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry strengthens the evidenced strategy of integrating general, organic, and biological chemistry for a focused introduction to the fundamental connections between chemistry and life. The streamlined approach offers readers a clear path through the content over a single semester.


The Third Edition integrates essential topics more effectively than any text on the market, covering core concepts in each discipline in just 12 comprehensive chapters. Practical connections and applications show readers how to use their understanding of chemistry in everyday life and future health professions. With an emphasis on problem solving and critical thinking, the book promotes active and attentive learning, which now include NEW! media assets, Practicing the Concepts. Featuring coauthor Todd Deal, these 3 to 5 minute videos explore key concepts in general, organic, and biological chemistry that readers traditionally find difficult. Readers gain skills and deepen their knowledge as they watch the videos and then practice what they have learned with Pause & Predict problems and a series of follow up multiple-choice questions.


The Third Edition places a greater emphasis on matching what professors teach in the classroom by increasing the coverage of biochemical applications in each chapter. A new design was created to highlight the career content in order to increase relevancy.


Also available as a Pearson eText or packaged with Mastering Chemistry


Pearson eText is a simple-to-use, mobile-optimized, personalized reading experience that can be adopted on its own as the main course material. It lets students highlight, take notes, and review key vocabulary all in one place, even when offline. Seamlessly integrated videos and other rich media engage students and give them access to the help they need, when they need it. Educators can easily share their own notes with students so they see the connection between their eText and what they learn in class – motivating them to keep reading, and keep learning.


Mastering combines trusted author content with digital tools and a flexible platform to personalize the learning experience and improve results for each student. Built for, and directly tied to the text, Mastering Chemistry enables an extension of learning, allowing students a platform to practice, learn, and apply outside of the classroom.


Note: You are purchasing a standalone book; Pearson eText and Mastering Chemistry do not come packaged with this content. Students, ask your instructor for the correct package ISBN and Course ID. Instructors, contact your Pearson representative for more information.
