Format: Hardcover
We use this text (now in its 7th edition) for both our Analytical I (chemical analysis) and Analytical II (instrumental analysis) courses. They are both 1-semester courses at the sophomore year, and this text is just the correct level and length to cover both courses. There are a number of broad sections, each of which is divided into several chapters. Roughly the 1st half covers chemical methods and the second half covers the instrumental methods. There are also a few chapters devoted to statistical analysis.
The sections are reasonably independent and can be done in pretty much any order, giving a great degree of flexibility. The text itself is easy to read with numerous descriptive diagrams. I say this for second-year level courses - the text is too superficial for higher levels. There is a good mix of descriptive chemistry to give the student a feel for the chemistry behind the analyses. Finally, there are adequate exercises at the end of the chapters, some of which are cumulative with previous sections. There is also a very handy tutorial on the use of Microsoft's Excel for use in a course like this, including some specific exercises in using the spreadsheet. I find it very helpful, and not at all exclusive for those using Excel since Quatro-Pro (and Lotus?) is very similar and contains help files that translate from Excel parlance.
My biggest issue is lack of a section on mass spectroscopy. Skoog's own "Instrumental Analysis" text has a fine section on mass spec, but this text contains virtually no mention of the technique, in spite of the fact that it is an increasingly important technique for both quantitative and qualitative trace analysis. However, that's the only real negative point - this text is very good and useful for 2nd year level analytical courses. (P.S. students find it straightforward and clear as well.)

Answer Key has answers to every question except it only answers A,C,E parts of questions which should be more than enough to get you on track for your assignments or for practicing for mid terms and finals.

A Worthy Alternative to Skoog and West's Fundamentals of... Dec 2 1999
By "thed0ct0r" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This text is a worthy contender to the classic "Fundamentals of Analytical Chemistry' by Skoog and West. I feel it is easier to read, and the examples given in the inserts should provide students with a "real world" need for the topics covered. The coverage is very similar to Fundamentals of Analytical Chemistry. The example problems and homework problems are illustrative and challanging. The experiments presented in the final chapters are well documented. My only observations for improvement would be the use of more detailed analysis of some of the insert examples. For example, a battery technology that is discussed in a step by step fashion in terms of equilibria, balancing redox equations, and problem solving. Also, a modernization of laboratory experiments to include topics in biochemistry, food and environmental science would be helpful in any future editon.

Analytical Chemistry: an introduction Oct. 15 2010
By Stephen Patton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is definetly a keeper! A masterpiece of clarity. Although it is >10 years old, this introductory book is still by far the best book of its kind. It is one of of the few chemistry books that I have read from cover to cover several times, and each time I still pick up insights into problem solving and the reasoning behind analytical techniques. The classical experiments in chapter 27 are so good that purchase of a seperate laboratory book is un-necessary.

Alright April 22 2013
By Arshia Ali - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I paid expedited shipping for this item... and while it arrived on time, the package was completely broken into when I received it, with the edges and cover of the textbook bent and damaged. Definitely frustrated since I spent extra on this textbook -- at least it could have arrived in decent condition.

As for the textbook itself, I found it was pretty helpful. The only part of the textbook I did find confusing was its handling of chromatography methods, but overall I found it to be pretty suitable for an analytical chem textbook.

Informative April 25 2013

My professor rates it highly and assures us that htis book is the authority on quantitative analysis, and that this book will be an asset in our future. He said it has trained the last forty years of chemists. It is a blessing to be able to own it.
