This third edition continues to innovate by providing students with an integrated and modern approach to the subject. The text emphasizes the modern tools of chemistry while incorporating historical evidence, and its unique molecular/quantitative emphasis is further reinforced by an integrated media package developed by the authors. Also of benefit is the just-in-time presentation of key content - only providing details once they are needed. While key topics and analytical techniques have been updated, there is now an additional, third chapter on chemical equilibrium. The authors have also developed an expanded and more integrated problem-solving emphasis that now incorporates a 4-step strategy throughout, complete with text icons. The whole is backed by a range of supplements, including a new illustration program, a tutorial CD, interactive learningware, an extensive Web CT component, an instructor's resource CD, and a solution CD.
