Chemistry : International Edition
For full-year general chemistry courses taken by biology, premedical, science, and engineering majors.McMurry/Fay's Chemistry focuses on visualizing and thinking to achieve try understanding. The text teaches the basics of solving problems using its trademark clear discussions and new art-enhanced format. The text moves students beyond rote quantitative problem solving, encouraging them to visualize and think about a problem before beginning to solve it; it conveys the key concepts being discussed to help students truly understand the chemistry by using unique, proven features. The clean, interesting writing style talks directly to students with a minimum of distractions. Molecular illustrations are abundant and are placed where they are referenced for maximum effectiveness with students. The well-integrated McMurry/Fay media program includes the IRCD, PH GradeAssist, a CW/CD suite and more.
