Book Preface

Welcome to the fourth edition of Basic Chemistry. This text was written and designed to help you prepare for science-related professions, such as engineering, nursing, medicine, environmental or agricultural science, or for careers such as laboratory technology. This text assumes no prior knowledge of chemistry.

The main objective in writing this text is to make the study of chemistry an engaging and positive experience for you by relating the structure and behavior of matter to real life. This new edition introduces more problem-solving strategies, including math remediation, new concept checks, more problem-solving guides, new Analyze the Problem features, conceptual and challenge problems, and new sets of combined problems.

It is our goal to help you become a critical thinker by understanding scientific concepts that will form a basis for making important decisions about issues concerning health and the environment. Thus, we have utilized materials that

• help you to learn and enjoy chemistry
• develop problem-solving skills that lead to success in your chemistry course
• promote learning and success in your chosen career
