Basic Chemistry 6th Edition by Karen C. Timberlake (Review)

Posted on

Basic Chemistry 6th Edition, ebook, pdf and download written by Karen C. Timberlake is here for you personally. This great book gives you the problem-solving tools and techniques you will need to succeed in future chemistry courses and in the workforce. More than one million students have studied chemistry using texts, laboratory manuals, and study guides written by Karen Timberlake. With a clear and friendly writing style, Timberlake continues to make the chemistry relevant and engaging.

Sixth Edition is designed in a very non-intimidating and user-friendly way with practice problems and their solutions in each chapter. it also prepares students for more advanced chemistry classes very well and recommends this book to anyone looking to go beyond chemistry.

Read: Basic and Clinical Pharmacology 15th Edition by Bertram Katzung

The 6e presents a new visual program that incorporates sound pedagogical principles from educational research on how students today learn and retain knowledge. The text’s applied focus helps students connect chemistry to their interests and career potential through applications related to real-life topics in health, the environment, and medicine. The new edition reinforces its emphasis on problem solving with the addition of chapter end Challenge problems and new assignable practice problems that ensure students master the basic quantitative skills and conceptual understanding needed to succeed in this course and to continue their studies in the field.
