Do you need extra help in chemistry? Enhance your education with Chemistry 2e. The textbook covers a wide range of topics taught in standard chemistry courses. It is suited for both beginner and intermediate-level students.
Chemistry 2e spans from the very beginnings of an introductory course to the end of second-semester chemistry class. Many different scientists, professors, and scholars contributed to the textbook‘s 22 chapters. Plus, there are several helpful reference portions near the end of the book. For example, students can access the Periodic Table of Elements, unit conversions and factor tables, water properties, the acid-base scale, half-lives for isotopes, and more in these pages. Readers can also engage with the learning material, as there are exercises throughout and an answer key in the last chapter.
Furthermore, Chemistry 2e helps draw students in with practical examples that connect chemistry to real-world applications. Writers and editors put the textbook together with students in mind, knowing that many enter the course unfamiliar with the topics and face challenges grasping them. The activities supplementing each chapter are interactive, and the visuals accompanying the text are clear, well-designed, and dynamic. This helps give students a learning experience, rather than a dry read.
