Chemistry – Karen C. Timberlake – 2nd Edition


on the strengths that have made Karen Timberlake a best-selling author in the one-semester allied health market, General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry: of Life, Second Edition now offers even more quantitative and conceptual coverage and the most comprehensive media package available.

General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry: of Life also provides all of Timberlake’s proven pedagogical features: a clear and friendly writing style, a -focused approach, and real-world, health-related that students can relate to. Designed primarily for the two-semester GOB course (but also suitable for one-semester courses looking for a comprehensive approach), the Second Edition develops students’ conceptual skills with new Concept Maps throughout the book that summarize and tie together chapter topics.

Chemical concepts are broken into bite-size pieces, with a step-by-step approach that provides clear and thorough understanding, and conceptual questions at the end of each chapter test comprehension of the material.

New have been added throughout the text and more quantitative coverage has been added to the general section. A new color-coded Guide to helps students master problem-solving skills.

The book includes chapter by chapter introductions, explanations, examples, and problems with answers in the back to work on. Concepts like arrow pushing, reaction nuances, and mechanisms are covered. There is one book per semester of orgo and I would recommend getting them both.
