Summary

DIGITAL UPDATE available for Fall 2020 classes
The Pearson eText and Mastering have been updated to provide new author-written content that emphasizes active reading and encourages critical thinking.


For one-semester courses in General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry.


A practical look at chemistry that connects to students’ everyday lives

Chemistry: An Introduction to General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry  is the ideal resource for today’s allied health and nursing students. Assuming no prior knowledge of chemistry, author Karen Timberlake makes the topic exciting to students by showing them why important concepts are relevant to their lives and future careers through activities and applications. The text also fosters development of problem-solving skills while helping students visualize and understand concepts through figures, sample problems, and concept maps. 


Pearson eText allows educators to easily share their own notes with students so they see the connection between their reading and what they learn in class — motivating them to keep reading, and keep learning. Portable access lets students study on the go, even offline. And, student usage analytics offer insight into how students use the eText, helping educators tailor their instruction.
