OverviewSerious Science with an Approach Built for Today's Students. This one-semester Principles of General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry textbook is written with the same student-focused, direct writing style that has been so successful in the Smith: Organic Chemistry and two-semester General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry texts. Janice Smith draws on her extensive teaching background to deliver a student-friendly format--with limited use of text paragraphs, through concisely written bulleted lists and highly detailed, well-labelled "teaching" illustrations--that provides need-to-know information in a succinct style for today's students. Armed with an excellent macro-to-micro illustration program and many applications to biological, medical, consumer, and environmental topics, this book is a powerhouse of student learning.
