Chemistry – Karen C. Timberlake – 2nd Edition


Building on the strengths that have made Karen Timberlake a best-selling author in the one-semester allied health market, General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry: Structures of Life, Second Edition now offers even more quantitative and conceptual coverage and the most comprehensive media package available.

General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry: Structures of Life also provides all of Timberlake’s proven pedagogical features: a clear and friendly writing style, a student-focused approach, and real-world, health-related applications that students can relate to. Designed primarily for the two-semester GOB course (but also suitable for one-semester courses looking for a comprehensive approach), the Second Edition develops students’ conceptual skills with new Concept Maps throughout the book that summarize and tie together chapter topics.

Chemical concepts are broken into bite-size pieces, with a step-by-step approach that provides clear and thorough understanding, and conceptual questions at the end of each chapter test student comprehension of the material.

New problems have been added throughout the text and more quantitative coverage has been added to the general chemistry section. A new color-coded Guide to Problem Solving helps students master problem-solving skills.
