Known for helping students develop the qualitative, conceptual foundation that gets them thinking like chemists, this market-leading text is designed for students with solid mathematical preparation and prior exposure to chemistry. The unique organization of the text supports this qualitative-to-quantitative approach. A strong emphasis on models and everyday applications of chemistry combines with a thoughtful, step-by-step problem solving approach to build conceptual understanding.
Steve Zumdahl is the author of market-leading textbooks in introductory chemistry, general chemistry, honors-level chemistry, and high school chemistry. Recently retired from his long-time position as Director of Undergraduate Programs at the University of Illinois, he has received numerous awards for his contributions to chemical education. These include the National Catalyst Award in recognition of his contribution to chemical education, the University of Illinois Teaching Award, the UIUC Liberal Arts and Sciences Advising Award, and the School of Chemical Sciences Teaching Award (five times). He earned his B.S. in Chemistry from Wheaton College (IL), and his Ph.D. from the University of Illinois.Review:
The writing style is lucid, direct, precise, and non-verbose. Some other introductory chemistry texts adopt a verbose presentation with the attendant loss of clarity.
The writing style is crisp and to the point whereas the art, tables, and end of chapter problems nicely support the written text.
My sense is that the topics are pitched at an appropriate level.
The students who are floundering and to whom I have recommended Zumdahl invariably come away with an enhanced understanding of the relevant chemical concepts after a thorough encounter with this text.
This is the singular text that does not compromise discipline of mind and contains flashes of insight and brilliance reminiscent of the Linus Pauling series of introductory texts, and yet is conceptually and algebraically accessible to most students with a good background in high school chemistry.
