Providing equal coverage of organic, inorganic and physical chemistry - coverage that is uniformly authoritative - this text builds on what students may already know and tackles their misunderstandings and misconceptions. The authors achieve unrivalled accessibility through carefully-wordedexplanations, the introduction of concepts in a logical and progressive manner, and the use of annotated diagrams and step-by-step worked examples. Students are encouraged to engage with the text and appreciate the central role that chemistry plays in our lives through the unique use of real-worldexamples and visuals. Frequent cross-references highlight the connections between each strand of chemistry and explain the relationship between the topics, so students can develop an understanding of the subject as a whole.
