Chemistry – Steven S. Zumdahl, Susan Arena Zumdahl – 8th Edition


CHEMISTRY allows the reader to learn chemistry basics quickly and easily by emphasizing a thoughtful approach built on problem solving. For the Eighth Edition, authors Steven and Susan Zumdahl have extended this approach by emphasizing problem-solving strategies within the Examples and throughout the text narrative. CHEMISTRY speaks directly to the reader about how to approach and solve chemical problems–to learn to think like a chemist–so that they can apply the process of problem-solving to all aspects of their lives.

Students are provided with the tools to become critical thinkers: to ask questions, to apply rules and develop models, and to evaluate the outcome. In addition, Steven and Susan Zumdahl crafted ChemWork, an online program included in CHEMISTRY’S technology package, to support their approach much as an instructor would offer support during office hours. ChemWork is just one of many study aids available with CHEMISTRY that supports the goals of the textbook—a strong emphasis on models, real world applications, and visual learning.
