The "CliffsStudySolver" workbooks combine 20 per cent review material with 80 per cent practice problems (and the answers!) to help make your lessons stick. "CliffsStudySolver Chemistry" is for students who want to reinforce their knowledge with a learn-by-doing approach. Inside, you'll get the practice you need to learn Chemistry with problem-solving tools such as: clear, concise reviews of every topic; practice problems in every chapter - with explanations and solutions; a diagnostic pretest to assess your current skills; a full-length exam that adapts to your skill level; and, a glossary, examples of calculations and equations, and situational tasks can help you practice and understand chemistry.This workbook also covers measurement, chemical reactions and equations, and matter - elements, compounds, and mixtures. With the help of this title you can explore other aspects of the language including: formulas and ionic compounds; gases and the gas laws; atoms; the mole - elements and compounds; solutions and solution concentrations; chemical bonding; acids, bases, and buffers. Practice makes perfect - and whether you're taking lessons or teaching yourself, "CliffsStudySolver" guides can help you make the grade. Author Charles Henrickson received his Ph.D. in chemistry from the University of Iowa. He has authored and coauthored several widely used learning aids and laboratory manuals in chemistry as well as a textbook. He is a professor of chemistry, emeritus at Western Kentucky University in Bowling more
