About this book
Praised for its clear, comprehensive explanations, the second edition of this approachable textbook gives students a tangible understanding of chemical principles rather than just encouraging them to remember facts. More applications and real world problems have been added to the new edition. There is now a new material on nutrition and enhanced 'Picture of Health' drawings, which allow students to see real chemistry inside the human body. Supplements include: Instructor's CD-ROM; Overhead Transparencies; Test Bank; Test Bank CD-ROM; Student Solutions Manual; Study Guide; Laboratory Manual; and Instructor's Solutions Manual.
