For one-semester or one-quarter, freshman-level courses in preparatory chemistry, taken by those who need to build basic skills.
This text anticipates and solves problems encountered by students learning chemistry for the first time. The authors present the basic principles of general chemistry in a concise and down-to-earth fashion so that complex material is easier to learn. Assuming students have little background in science—let alone chemistry—Daub and Seese stress analogies to explain fundamentals. A review of basic mathematics (Chapter 1) is also provided.
