"General Chemistry with Qualitative Analysis... is a mature and polished sixth edition...The bright and colourful text is carefully organised to aid both the student and teacher involved in the course with a large number of worked examples and chapter-by-chapter exercises. The pedagogical approach is extended to the use of colour coding of chemical concepts such as oxidation/reduction and repeated sidebar references to the recommended multimedia CD. Another innovation in this edition is the inclusion of a number of stereo images that may be viewed with the special glasses supplied..." - from Peter Hamilton, a reader in physical chemistry, Queen Mary and Westerfield College, University of London.
