A standard in the industry, this best-selling lab manual was written in conjunction with Brown/LeMay/Bursten's Chemistry: The Central Science, 7/e but can be used as a stand-alone lab manual. This edition has been updated to reflect environmental concerns.

This text fosters a conceptual understanding of chemical properties and principles. The authors present all of the information as a coherent package with clear, logical treatments of key topics and smooth transitions between sections and chapters. The periodic table and periodicity are used throughout as a unifying theme and as a framework on which to build greater understanding of chemical behavior and trends. Problem-solving is emphasized as a vehicle to a deeper understanding of principles rather than simply as an activity in formula memorization.From the Back Cover:
This is a beautifully presented and well-written general chemistry book. It offers a "thinking" or "conceptual" approach to problem solving in the world of chemistry. Effective, vibrant, and pedagogically sound illustrations helps to visualize chemical concepts. Computer-rendered graphics illustrate the relationship between the seen (macroscopic) and the unseen (atomic and molecular) chemical world. The illustrations establish a visual connection between the written descriptions of chemical phenomena and how the processes occur.
