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 students 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 students 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. NEW 3 to 5 minute Practicing the Concepts videos, featuring coauthor Todd Deal, explore key concepts in general, organic, and biological chemistry that students traditionally find difficult. Students 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.
