View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Teaching all of the necessary concepts within the constraints of a one-term chemistry course can be challenging. Authors Denise Guinn and Rebecca Brewer have drawn on their 14 years of experience with the one-term course to write a textbook that incorporates biochemistry and organic chemistry throughout each chapter, emphasizes cases related to allied health, and provides students with the practical quantitative skills they will need in their professional lives.  Essentials of General, Organic, and Biochemistry captures student interest from day one, with a focus on attention-getting applications relevant to health care professionals and as much pertinent chemistry as is reasonably possible in a one term course.  Students value their experience with chemistry, getting a true sense of just how relevant it is to their chosen profession. To browse a sample chapter, view sample ChemCasts, and more visit

“LOVE IT [the writing style].  Easy going and knowledgeable.  It is how I try to be in class.”—Kerry Marshall, Bridgewater College

“This approach helps students to make a link between different topics of chemistry.  It shows them that chemistry is not as compartmentalized as they might think otherwise.”—Eric Elisabeth, Johnson County Community College

“The traditional approach was to cover inorganic topics, then to work with organic leading to biochemistry. The result of this sequence is that biochemistry was rarely covered.  By incorporating the later topics throughout those topics will be presented. “—Peter Krieger, Palm Beach Community College

“By covering concepts and then including the inorganic, organic, and biochemistry applications for that concept, the students get a much richer exposure to organic and biochemistry. This type of approach shows how chemistry is related to life throughout the chapters.”—Byron Howell, Tyler Junior College
