The seventh edition of General Chemistry continues the tradition of presenting only the fabric that is very important for a one-year general chemistry course. It strikes a balance between theory and application by incorporating real-world examples; helping students visualize the 3-dimensional atomic and molecular structures which might be the foundation of chemical activity; and developing problem-solving and essential thinking skills. Even though the seventh edition accommodates many impressive features, such as conceptual idea review, animations correlated to the text, and hand-sketched worked examples, General Chemistry remains to be 200 to 300 pages shorter and much more economical than other two-semester textbooks. Dr. Chang and Dr. Goldsby’ concise-but-thorough approach will appeal to efficiency-minded instructors and value-conscious students.
