Guinn’s Essentials of General, Organic and Biochemistry uses health and medicine as the framework for learning the fundamentals of chemistry in this student-centered one-semester text.The newly revised 3rd edition focuses on core concepts and necessary math skills, and features a revamped organization to align with traditional course organization and shorter, more condensed chapters. Easily digestible content and medical applications help reduce student anxiety and make chemistry meaningful for students preparing for future careers in nursing and other allied health professions.Paired with SaplingPlus and an embedded eBook, students will be able to focus their study with adaptive quizzing and understand the relevance of chemistry through videos, animations and case studies.

Core Concepts:  Margin boxes emphasize important concepts within the course, and provide a quick study tool for students in reviewing chapter content

Math Tips:  Margin boxes provide suggested techniques and reminders of math skills at points in the text when mathematics is required

Guidelines:  Step-by-step instructions, such as naming organic compounds, can be used as both explanations and a quick reference when doing homework or other exercises.  They are clearly set off in the text to emphasize their importance and to help students find them easily

Chemistry in Medicine: A Chemistry in Medicine feature concludes each chapter by providing an in-depth look at how the chemical principles described in the chapter and be directly applied to a problem or issue in health care

Concepts in Context:  Because context and connection are crucial to motivation and learning chemistry, each chapter opens in the form of a short, practical, and real-life example of a health-related topic connected to the concepts in the chapter.  These stories immediately immerse the student in a high-interest topic related to health and medicine

 


Revised organization covering general, organic, and biochemistry topics chronologically rather than dispersed throughout the text

Shorter, more digestible chapters

New text features: Core Concepts and Math Tips

SaplingPlus with VitalSource eBook

LearningCurve adaptive quizzing tied to every chapter

Case studies related to real-world applications, especially medical applications, in two formats: in-class worksheets and digitally-based problems in Sapling
