Book DescriptionChemistry, Second Edition, by Julia Burdge has been created to bridge the gap in the McGraw-Hill general chemistry offerings. This textbook offers a clear writing style written with the students in mind. Julia uses her background of teaching hundreds of general chemistry students per year and creates content to offer more detailed explanation on areas where she knows they have problems.
Sitting down with the art house, Julia Burdge worked with the artist to create the style and major art pieces in her text. Out of these discussions, came the creation of the Visualizing Art two-page spreads which detail a process for the students and provide them with the answer to "What is the Point?" Due the success of the art with students, this offering has been doubled in the second edition.
With outstanding art, a consistent problem-solving approach, interesting applications woven throughout the chapters, and a wide range of end-of-chapter problems, this is a great second edition text.
I had this textbook from another university but dropped out to go to another university so I really never had the chance to use it in the classroom. However, my current university uses the book Chemistry by another author. I can tell you, this book saved me a lot! Chemistry by Julia has covered the courses of General Chemistry I and General Chemistry II down to the very core. I could not understand the other book almost every chapter so I just open this one and read about the subject. This book for me is a life saver and it is quite easy to understand. Thank you Julia Burdge!
