About the Book: This new General Organic Chemistry (GOB) textbook is written with the same student-focused, direct writing style that has been so successful in the Smith: Organic Chemistry text. Smith writes with a bulleted approach that delivers need-to-know information in a succinct style for today?s students. Armed with an excellent illustration program full of macro-to-micro art, as well as many applications to biological, medical, consumer, and environmental topics, this book is a powerhouse of learning for students. Key Features: Text written in a succinct writing style, utilizing bulleted points for emphasis of important information. Students receive the `need-to-know? information in digestible, easy-to-learn portions. Art program provides macro-to-micro illustrations throughout. Many GOB students are visually oriented. Macro-to-micro illustrations include photos or drawings of everyday objects, paired with their molecular representation, to help students visualize and understand the chemistry behind ordinary things. Common applications of chemistry to everyday life are found in margin-placed Health Notes, Consumer Notes, and Environmental Notes, as well as ?Focus on Health and Medicine,? ?Focus on the Environment,? and ?Focus on the Human Body? sections of the text. Students taking the GOB course are entering fields where there are frequently applying chemistry to medical or consumer-related positions. These applications help them relate chemistry to their future careers. ?How To? boxes provide students with detailed instructions on how to work through key processes. Students don?t have to re-read text paragraphs to figure out appropriate steps to key processes. The How To boxes step out the process in a straightforward and easy-to-understand method. End-of-chapter sections include study aids including key reactions, key terms, and key concepts, which are tied to the chapter goals at the start of the chapter.
