The fifth edition of this engaging and established textbook provides students with a complete course in chemical literacy and assumes minimal prior experience of science and maths. 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.

The book covers the development of chemical history and core topics such as states of matter, atomic structure, chemical bonding and redox...I certainly recommend this good value, multi-purpose book for access to higher education, BTec and A-level equivalent courses. – Ursula Lowe, educationinchemistry, eic.rsc.org, May, 2018
Provides an excellent foundation across all essential aspects of chemistry at this level, and brings the subject alive with sections on applied chemistry in diverse areas. I highly recommend this text to learners and teachers alike. – Ronald Johnston, Science Education Author and Researcher, UNESCO MGIEPM
