Straightforward, thorough, and packed with examples and exercises and modeled after Atwood's widely popular CHEMISTRY SURVIVAL GUIDE, the new SURVIVAL GUIDE FOR INTRODUCTORY CHEMISTRY is everything students need to survive and thrive in an introductory course. Designed as a reader's guide to an introductory textbook, the SURVIVAL GUIDE offers detailed step-by-step problem-solving sequences, giving students the competency--and confidence--they need to master the material and achieve optimal exam results. Coupled with a complementary math review, this brief but powerful resource covers the most fundamental aspects of introductory chemistry in a succinct series of essential modules.

Dr. Charles H. Atwood received his BS degree in chemistry from Millsaps College and his PhD in nuclear chemistry from Florida State University. His postdoctoral research was conducted at the Australian National University. A temporary appointment at the University of Georgia was followed by a ten-year stay at Mercer University, where Dr. Atwood developed a series of papers on teaching nuclear topics in the chemistry curriculum. In 1995, he joined the faculty of the University of Georgia's chemistry department and was named Coordinator of Freshman Chemistry in 1997. At the University of Georgia, Dr. Atwood developed significant use of instructional technology in the freshman chemistry program, including pioneering computerized testing. In 2011 Dr. Atwood accepted the Ronald and Eileen Ragsdale Professor of Chemical Education position at the University of Utah. Over the last ten years, his research group has studied the use of item response theory to analyze student performance on assessments, with the ultimate goal of improving student learning and performance. He is the author of two other successful SURVIVAL GUIDES. His hobbies include astronomy, traveling, and bicycle riding.Review:
