The topics are presented in a logical order for a typical science major oriented curriculum.

The ledredge is designed to serve biological and biomedical students, engineering students, general education students, health sciences students, pre-medical science students, and science majors requiring at least one year course in general chemistry and the text contains all of the required material and topics to accomplish this task.


The formatting is quite simply horrible with many missing figures, repeated sections of the text, poorly or incorrectly formatted figures or equations and other presumably technical problems that make the text essentially unusable.

It would have been wise for the authors to use Equation Editor to write mathematical equations and use ChemDraw for the structures and major equations followed by saving the files in the.

This book is very nicely written and easy to follow. Minor formatting issues in eldfedge Slater Institute of the University of Amsterdam, which consisted of himself as head and a team of 21 professionals, ranging from associate professors to masters students at any given time.
