This Book Made Chemistry Easy To Learn May 26 2010
By Anita K. Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Everything in the book was easy to understand. I am not sure how hard Chemistry is supposed to be since using this book explained all the concepts so simply. I was incredibly fortunate to be taught by Dr. Frost, one of the authors. Her style of teaching is all over this book. Direct, to the point, and simple to understand. The sections in each chapter were kept fairly short and I never felt overloaded with information. There were enough graphics, pictures, tables, and charts to explain the material visually. Interspersed in each section were practice problems to grasp the concepts before moving on and there were additional problems at the end of each chapter. This is a gem of a book and having it to study by allowed me to make an A in the class. Having never taken a Chemistry class before I didn't know what to expect. Sciences get a bum rap for being hard to understand yet I did not find this to be true at all with Dr. Frost's class or her book. Thank you Dr. Frost for your book and a really great class!

Chemistry made simple May 18 2010
By Alicia Pierce - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Let me start by saying I am not a Chemistry person. I like what chemistry does for us everyday but studying it seemed overwhelming. This book helped me believe that it was possible for me not only to be interested but absorb the material. First of all the book is easy to understand. There are many practical examples throughout every chapter. Then there are plenty of sample problems, which helped me grasp the concepts. When you put all these things together chemistry becomes relevant and applicable to everyday life. The other great thing is the book is full of colored illustrations which help if you are a visual person. The book is also really thin and light weight, which is a nice feature. The price is also good as far as science books go.
I hate texts, but I really liked this book Jan. 10 2013

I took Chemistry (required for my major) and planned to hate it since I've hated all the other Chem courses I've taken. Guess what? This was a very fun and informative course! The prof used this book almost verbatim for his lectures, making it very easy to study for. The book is expensive, even for a text, and not very thick compared to many texts. But that's what I liked about it. It wasn't overstuffed with factoids, which overwhelm the ready. It was clear, concise, chose examples that I could relate to in life, and made the topic understandable and accessible. I really ended up liking this text. As is typical, they only give ansers to odd numbered problems. In a perfect world they'd give all answers, but I'm not going to change the universe here, I know. The next even numbered problem is often (but not always) very similar to the previous odd numbered problem, so that helps.

I was excited when I saw this used book for a great price, but the sticker that the seller put on the front cover does NOT come off! It's a huge sticker that says USED and so I tried to take it off. I've used water, alcohol, everything you can think of to try and get the sticky part off and it looks kinda bad. But It arrived ON TIME!!!! I ordered it 5 days before class started and it came on a Saturday, right before I started class Monday! Awesome in that aspect

I never thought in a million years that I would be able to understand, and even enjoy, Chemistry, but I do now. Yes, this book includes General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry, but it is very easy to read and grasp the concepts. It is thorough and includes examples to help the reader understand Chemistry better by relating it to the real world.
