This engaging and established textbook assumes minimal prior experience of science and maths and provides students with a complete course in chemical literacy. Written in an accessible and succinct style, this book offers comprehensive coverage of all the core topics in organic, inorganic and physical chemistry. Topics covered include bonding, moles, solutions and solubility, energy changes, equilibrium, organic compounds and spectroscopy. Each unit contains in-text exercises and revision questions to consolidate learning at every step, and is richly illustrated with diagrams and images to aid understanding.

This popular text is an essential resource for students who are looking for an accessible introductory textbook. It is also ideal for non-specialists on courses such as General Science, Engineering, Environmental, Health or Life Sciences.
