Emphasizing the applications of chemistry and minimizing complicated mathematics, GENERAL, ORGANIC, AND BIOLOGICAL CHEMISTRY, 7E is written throughout to help students succeed in the course and master the biochemistry content so important to their future careers. The Seventh Edition's clear explanations, visual support, and effective pedagogy combine to make the text ideal for allied health majors. Early chapters focus on fundamental chemical principles while later chapters build on the foundations of these principles. Mathematics is introduced at point-of-use and only as needed.
- A wide range of examples throughout the book help students improve their problem-solving skills.
- Chemical Connection Boxes show chemistry as it relates to everyday life, highlighting its relevance to students' future careers in the health and environmental fields.
- Chemistry at-a-Glance features provide brief visual summaries of core chapter concepts to help students visualize difficult material.
- Early chapters focus on fundamental chemical principles; later chapters build on the foundation of these principles.
