Designed for first year students at university studying chemistry, and students taking physical chemistry as part of their degree course this Workbook is comprised of eight main sections covering revision of key elements. There are some 68 examples and 139 exercises through which studentsability and confidence with tackling quantitative calculations will be developed, beginning with material based on pre-university knowledge through to topics such as chemical equilibrium that feature in first year unversity courses. The important equations are collected together at the end of eachsection for easy reference and a list of useful mathematical formulae is included. Students can work through the book as self-paced individuals, or in groups, alongside traditional lecture courses.
Stephen K. Scott and Barry R. Johnson are both at University of Leeds.

Editorial Reviews

`The explanations are ... clear and the comments give valuable insights. ... this workbook is a valuable addition to the armoury of material for teaching first year physical chemistry and deserves serious consideration.'Chemistry in Britain, September 1997
