Tro provides students the support they need early so they can tackle challenging topics later. He does this by building on what students already know. The author's goal in writing this book is to deliver the depth of coverage faculty want with the accessibility and clarity that students need for success. Nivaldo J. Tro's Chemistry: A Molecular Approach explains difficult chemical concepts in a concise and clear student-centered manner while also providing faculty with the flexibility to go more deeply into many key, often neglected topics, such as electron diffraction, molecular orbital theory, and free-energy changes under non-standard conditions. Chemistry is presented visually throughmulti-level images (macroscopic, molecular and symbolic representations), which helps students see the connections among the formulas (symbolic), the world around them (macroscopic), and the atoms and molecules that make up the world (molecular). Every aspect of this book focuses students on recognizing that the behavior of matter is based on the behavior of atoms and molecules.Read Less
Good. This is a custom book made for University of Southern California for a specific course. Moderate Highlighting May have minimal notes/highlighting, minimal wear/tear. Please contact us if you have any Questions.
This book is perfect.. In good condition and very useful... Great book and great website!!!!

decent intro text
This is a pretty good intro text which covers all the basics of chemistry. Good charts for the elements and important compounds. The book itself in this edition is pretty expensive but if you go to the publisher website you can get the WHOLE text as an ebook online w/ extra excercises in Mastering Chemistry for under $100.
