This solid, yet value-priced paperback gives you the background and confidence you'll need to succeed in chemistry. Stoker focuses on the most important topics—omitting organic and biochemistry chapters—and teaches the problem-solving skills students in this course need. Each topic is developed at “ground level,” and continues step by step until the level of sophistication required for a further chemistry course is attained.

Designed especially for students who have had little or no previous instruction in chemistry or for those who need a thorough review, these texts provide the background (and confidence) needed for a main sequence college-level general chemistry course. Introduction to Chemical Principles, 5/E covers the same material as Preparatory Chemistry, 5/E, with three additional chapters -- Reaction Rates and Chemical Equilibrium; Nuclear Chemistry; and Hydrocarbons and Hydrocarbon Derivatives.From the Back Cover:
Ideal for reference/review, this interesting and informative book caters to readers who have had little or no previous instruction in general chemistry, providing the background (and confidence) required for further studies. Focuses on fewer topics than similar books, but with a more extensive treatment to ensure a solid grasp of essential, fundamental material. Begins development of each topic at "ground level" with continuous, step-by-step progression. Emphasizes problem-solving (employing dimensional analysis whenever possible), and stresses significant figure concepts in all problem-solving situations. Contains over 5,000 questions and problems, features numerous worked-out examples, and provides two independent, but similar, problem sets at the end of each chapter; one with answers, one without. Highlights of the Sixth Edition include 17 new vignettes entitled "The Human Side of Chemistry" that enlighten readers with brief biographies of scientists who helped develop the foundations of modern chemistry, plus extensively expanded marginal note materials.
