The new edition of this best-selling text is summarised by 'classic text, modern presentation.' Its emphasis on fundamental skills and concepts, and clearly explained problem-solving strategies continues to be a strength. The revision builds on the highly praised style and applications to everyday life that have earned this text a reputation as the voice of authority in general chemistry. Features: * General Organization * The overall chapter organization is almost identical to 5/e. Two minor changes in Chapter titles: Chapter 19 was called Ionic Equilibria II: Hydrolysis and Titration Curves, now called Ionic Equilibria II: Buffers and Titration Curves. Chapter 27 was called Organic Chemistry I: Compounds and is now called "Organic Chemistry II: Compounds and Introduction to Reactions." * Classic Strengths * Readability, accuracy, comprehensiveness. * Strong on basics such as drawing and interpreting Lewis structures. Says one reviewer: "I do like the method used for determining the Lewis structures. It allows the students to determine the number of bonds easily and the number of lone pairs of electrons." New to this edition: * Molecular models. Much of the artwork has been created using updated software, in order to enhance the visual presentation. * Saunders CD-ROM cross references in the margin. These direct the reader to specific sections in the most popular general chemistry CD-ROM on the market. A separate correlation guide linking this text to the CD-ROM will be available. * Macro-micro art. This artwork shows moleculese in an "exploded" format in order to help understand molecular behavior. * Stereoscopic art. Packaged with each text is a stereoscopic viewer in order to see various molecules in motion. See especially Chapters 8, 13, 18, 25, 27, and 28. * Major revision of End-of-Chapter Exercises. More than 40 percent of the Exercises are new or updated. The Exercises represent an excellent variety and continue to challenge the student's grasp of concepts in addition to skill building. Many new ones include environmental and industrial applications. A new type of exercise that is widely praised is the Conceptual Exercise...

Kenneth Whitten is professor emeritus at the University of Georgia (UGA). Dr. Whitten received his A.B. at Berry College, M.S. at the University of Mississippi, and Ph.D. at the University of Illinois. He taught at Tulane, the University of Southwestern Louisiana, the Mississippi State College of Women, and the University of Alabama before joining the UGA faculty as assistant professor and coordinator of general chemistry in 1967. He remained coordinator of general chemistry throughout his UGA career until his retirement in 1998. His numerous awards include the G.E. Philbrook Chemistry Teacher of the Year Award, the Outstanding Honors Professor, the Franklin College Outstanding Teacher of the Year, the General Sandy Beaver Teaching Award, and a Senior Teaching Fellowship. An award was established in Dr. Whitten's honor in 1998 celebrating outstanding teaching assistants in UGA's department of chemistry.
Raymond Davis is a University Distinguished Teaching Professor at the University of Texas, Austin. He received his B.S. at the University of Kansas in 1960, his Ph.D. from Yale University in 1965, and was a Cancer Research Scientist at the Roswell Park Memorial Institute from 1964 to 1968. His awards include the Minnie Stevens Piper Professorship in 1992, the Jean Holloway Award in Chemistry Teaching in 1996, and (five times) the Outstanding Teacher Award given by campus freshman honor societies. He was an inaugural member of the University's Academy of Distinguished Teachers in 1995.
M. Larry Peck, Professor Emeritus at Texas A & M University, received his Ph.D. from Montana State University in 1971. He won the Chemical Manufacturers Association Catalyst Award in 2000, Texas A & M's Association of Former Students Distinguished Achievement Award in Chemistry Teaching in 2002, and the Division of Chemical Education's Outstanding Service to the Division Award in 2007. Until his retirement in 2006, Dr. Peck taught science at all levels and directed programs designed to improve the teaching of physical science programs now known in Texas as "integrated physics and chemistry." The resource materials developed in these workshops are being used as models for other state-funded teacher training programs.
