For two-semester/three-quarter courses in General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry, primarily for majors in Allied Health, and occasionally in Environmental Technology, Agriculture, and other majors. Having secured the loyalty of both instructors and students, this best-selling, highly student-oriented text offers clear and concise use of language, thoughtful attention to problem-solving, and engaging discussions of relevant applications. Readable without sacrificing depth of content, it effectively covers the essentials of allied health chemistry without becoming bogged down in excessive and unnecessary detail, and puts chemistry in the context of everyday life. Maintaining interest and promoting student confidence, it offers a relaxed and friendly writing style that is highly accessible to the student with no scientific background and encourages analytic skill-building throughout with numerous problems, worked-out examples, and conceptual exercises.

From the Publisher:

The second edition of this best-selling text builds upon what made the book so widely adopted in the first place: student accessibility, readability, an effective problem-solving program, and flexibility. The authors understand that most students have their sights set beyond the chemistry laboratory. Thus, they have put chemistry in the context of applications and everyday life -- making the book and course student accessible. With the intent of gaining student confidence, the writing style is relaxed, friendly -- and readable for the student with no scientific background. The problem- solving program maintains a wealth of problems and worked-out examples, including McMurry's innovative ballpark questions that test the student's understanding of concepts and develop their analytical thinking skills. The authors have made the text as flexible as possible. This is especially evident in the biological chemistry chapters, where structure and function are integrated.
