This new one-semester General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry textbook is written with the same student-focused, direct writing style that has been so successful in the Smith: Organic Chemistry and two-semester General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry texts. Smith writes with a bulleted approach that delivers need-to-know information in a succinct style for today?s students. Armed with an excellent macro-to-micro illustration program and many applications to biological, medical, consumer, and environmental topics, this book is a powerhouse of student learning.
Text written in a succinct writing style, utilizing bulleted points for emphasis of important information.
Micro-to-macro illustrations are found throughout the text.
Common applications of chemistry are linked to everyday life. These applications are found in the margins in Health Notes, Consumer Notes, and Environmental Notes. There also found in text sections called "Focus on Health and Medicine," "Focus on the Environment," and "Focus on the Human Body."
"How To" boxes provide students with detailed instructions on how to work through key processes.
End-of-chapter study tools. Tools include study aids such as key reactions, key terms, and key concepts, which are tied to the chapter goals at the start of each chapter.
Study Skills Parts I, II, and III. These study skills appear at the beginning of each of the three parts of the book: general, organic, and biological chemistry, highlighting important methods of study for the upcoming chapters.
