Chemistry is widely considered to be the central science: it encompasses concepts on which all other branches of science are developed. Yet, for many students entering university, gaining a firm grounding in chemistry is a real challenge. Chemistry³ responds to this challenge, providing students with a full understanding of the fundamental principles of chemistry on which to build later studies. Uniquely amongst the introductory chemistry texts currently available, Chemistry³ is written by a team of chemists to give equal coverage of organic, inorganic and physical chemistry - coverage that is uniformly authoritative throughout. A special feature is the mechanistic approach to organic chemistry, rather than the old-fashioned 'functional group' approach. The author team is completed by two specialists in chemistry education who bring to the book a wealth of experience of teaching chemistry in a way that students enjoy and understand. The result is a text that builds on what students already know from school and tackles their misunderstandings and misconceptions, thereby providing a seamless transition from school to undergraduate study. The authors achieve unrivalled accessibility through the provision of carefully-worded explanations and reminders of what they already know; the introduction of concepts in a logical and progressive manner; and the use of annotated diagrams and step-by-step worked examples,. The unique use of context and photographs show how chemistry is applicable to everyday life, encouraging students to engage with the text and see the central role that chemistry plays in our lives. Chemistry³ tackles head-on two issues pervading chemistry education: the students' mathematical skills, and their ability to see the subject as a single, unified discipline. Instead of avoiding the maths, Chemistry³ provides structured support, in the form of careful explanations, reminders of key mathematical concepts, step-by-step calculations in worked examples, and a Maths Toolkit, to help students get to grips with the essential mathematical element of chemistry. Frequent cross-references highlight the connections between each strand of chemistry and explain the relationship between the topics so students can develop an understanding of the subject as a whole. Online Resource Centre: The following resources are available to provide a full teaching and learning package: Student resources · Interactive and animation-based activities which encourage students to actively learn · 3D rotatable molecular structures · Drag-n-drop exercises · Learning outcomes, summaries and key equations. · Student solutions manual. Lecturer resources · A 'test bank' of multiple choice questions · All the illustrations from the book available to download. · Lecturer's solutions manual.

This is a book that shines out amongst so many other graduate texts in the field of chemistry. It does not try to encompass the whole of a degree course in a single text; rather it addresses the specific needs of the first year undergraduate. It does so in a refreshingly open and 'familiar way'. Reviews, The Higher Education Academy UK Physical Sciences Centre
This comprehensive textbook covers all of the material normally included in the first year of BSc and MChem chemistry courses at UK universities. It provides breadth of coverage of the whole of chemistry and combines this with depth of information on individual topics. ( Education in Chemistry, January 2010)
It is an UTTERLY FANTASTIC textbook ( Jennifer Lawson, first year Chemistry student, Loughborough University)
This book would be ideal for introductory courses in organic, inorganic and physical chemistry ( Chemistry World)
In view of its quality and advantageous price this book is especially recommended to its target audience, as well as everyone for whom an up-to-date introduction to chemistry is suitable. ( CLB Chemie in Labor und Biotechnik, April 2010)
A simple uncluttered layout, amply illustrated with contemporary "real world" examples, clearly demarcates diffe rent sections. The book positively blooms; it is beautifully illustrated and operates on many levels without feeling cluttered, juggling chemistry theory, equations and history in a manner that enriches rather than overloads the reading experience ( Ewan Miller, second-year medicine Undergraduate, University of Aberdeen)
I was particularly impressed by the way in which the physical basis of key mathematical equations was presented and discussed in clear simple language. The authors adopt the approach taken by myself in my lectures, in which I attempt to convey to the students the sense that an equation is not only a jumble of arcane symbols but contains a clear meaning which can be subjected to a clear and concise explanation and interpretation. ( Mike Lyons, Trinity College, Dublin)
Where it is superior, is in its ability to actually teach the students rather than just lecture to them. ( James Barker, University of Kingston)
This textbook is excellent value for money. I would definitely recommend it for first year students and can see myself finding it useful for years to come. ( Annabelle Lacey, student, University of St Andrews)
This is the only textbook I will need to use for all of first year due to the well explained, detailed content. ( Kirsty Purchase, student, University of St Andrews)
