Reviews

"Review from previous edition This book provides students with innovative, intuitive and systematic strategies to master problem-solving in chemistry... A valuable guide to solving chemcial equations, and calculations based on chemical equations." - Paul Yates, Chemistry World

"A good supplement for any general chemistry course. It differs from the normal book in that the descriptive commentary is kept to a minimum, while the numerical problem-solving pieces are kept simple and methodical. Recommended." - Choice
