Times are changing more rapidly than ever-particularly in the vital areas of biochemistry, the environment, energy, drugs, and health and... nutrition. In this revision, the authors of Chemistry for Changing Times strengthen the book's environmental focus by tying "Environmental Explorations" exercises to the media, and by implementing a framework that uses the ACS's Environmental Principles, which are written by experts in the field. This reference puts chemistry in an approachable context and personalizes it for today's readers, enabling them to focus on evaluating information about real-life issues rather than memorizing rigorous theory and mathematics. Four chapters (19 through 22) are now posted online; Hill/Kolb is going green by reducing page length overall and moving four chapters from the text to the Web. A new, robust ebook with rich media assetsincludes Whiteboard problem-solving videos for every worked example in the book; section-ending self assessment questions from the book; and Green Explorations critical-thinking exercises link text and media.

To succeed in introductory chemistry, you need to develop your problem-solving skills-but you'll also need to understand why these skills are... important. Introductory Chemistry, Fourth Edition extends chemistry from the laboratory to your world, helping you learn chemistry by demonstrating how it is manifested in your daily life. Throughout, the Fourth Edition presents a new student-friendly, step-by-step problem-solving approach that adds four steps to worked examples (Sort, Strategize, Solve, and Check). This proven text continues to foster student success beyond the classroom with MasteringChemistry(R), the most advanced online tutorial and assessment program available.
Fundamentals of General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry by McMurry, Ballantine, Hoeger, and Peterson provides background in chemistry and... biochemistry with a relatable context to ensure students of all disciplines gain an appreciation of chemistry's significance in everyday life. Known for its clarity and concise presentation, this book balances chemical concepts with examples, drawn from students' everyday lives and experiences, to explain the quantitative aspects of chemistry and provide deeper insight into theoretical principles. The Seventh Edition focuses on making connections between General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry through a number of new and updated features - including all-new Mastering Reactions boxes, Chemistry in Action boxes, new and revised chapter problems that strengthen the ties between major concepts in each chapter, practical applications, and much more. This package contains: Fundamentals of General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry , Seventh Edition
Chemistry: The Study of Matter and Its Changes, Sixth Edition will provide the necessary practice, support and individualised instruction that ensures... success in the General Chemistry course. This text provides the forum for problem solving and concept mastery of chemical phenomena that leads to proficiency and success in the General Chemistry course. This edition will continue a "molecular basis of chemistry" tradition, but in a manner that overtly and repeatedly reinforces the way properties at the molecular level are related to properties we observe at the macroscopic level. The unique "chemical tools" approach employed in this book provides a way of thinking that helps those students develop the ability to analyse and solve both mathematical and conceptual problems. This text follows the successful three-step approach described as "ANALYSIS," "SOLUTION" and "IS THE ANSWER REASONABLE?" This encourages the student to think about the problem before attempting to solve it, then working through the solution, and finally asking the important question "Does the answer make sense?" There are problem sets called "Bringing It Together" that contain problems which require students to bring together concepts from two or more of the preceding chapters. This reinforces learned concepts and builds concept mastery.
Known for its friendly writing style and real-world, health-related applications, Timberlake's Chemistry: An Introduction to General, Organic, and... Biological Chemistry was created specifically to help prepare you for a career in a health-related profession-such as nursing, dietetics, respiratory therapy, or environmental and agricultural science. It assumes no prior knowledge of chemistry, and makes your course an engaging and positive experience by relating the structure and behavior of matter to its role in health and the environment. The Eleventh Edition introduces more problem-solving strategies, including new concept checks, more problem-solving guides, and more conceptual, challenge, and combined problems.

"A devastating bombardment of managerial ?thinking and the profession of management consulting. . . . A serious and valuable polemic."-Wall... Street JournalFresh from Oxford with a degree in philosophy and no particular interest in business, Matthew Stewart might not have seemed a likely candidate to become a consultant. But soon he was telling veteran managers how to run their companies. In narrating his own ill-fated (and often hilarious) odyssey at a top-tier firm, Stewart turns the consultant's merciless, penetrating eye on the management industry itself. The Management Myth offers an insightful romp through the entire history of thinking about management, a withering critique of pseudoscience in management theory, and a clear explanation of why the MBA usually amounts to so much BS-leading us through the wilderness of American business thought.
