Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Known for many years as Barron's Easy Way Series, the new editions of these popular self-teaching titles are now Barron's E-Z Series. Brand-new cover designs reflect all new page layouts, which feature extensive two-color treatment, a fresh, modern typeface, and more graphic material than ever-- charts, graphs, diagrams, instructive line illustrations, and where appropriate, amusing cartoons. Meanwhile, the quality of the books' contents remains at least as high as ever. Barron's E-Z books are self-help manuals focused to improve students' grades in a wide variety of academic and practical subjects. For most subjects, the level of difficulty ranges between high school and college-101 standards. Although primarily designed as self-teaching manuals, these books are also preferred by many teachers as classroom supplements--and for some courses, as main textbooks. E-Z books review their subjects in detail, and feature both short quizzes and longer tests with answers to help students gauge their learning progress. Subject heads and key phrases are set in a second color as an easy reference aid. Barron's E-Z Chemistry covers all important chemistry topics, from atomic structure and chemical formulas to electrochemistry and the basics of organic chemistry. Three full-length tests are included with answers fully explained, two of them modeled after the SAT Subject Area Chemistry Test. A method of diagnosing students' strengths and weaknesses by topic area is included with each test.

Synopsis:

Explanations of the basic principles of chemistry are combined with practice tests to help students prepare for chemistry achievement tests.

Synopsis:

Written primarily for high school and college-101 students, this updated edition covers all important chemistry topics, including atomic structure, bonding, chemical formulas, gases, chemical calculations, liquids, solids, and phase changes, chemical reactions, acids, bases, salts, electrochemistry, the basics of organic chemistry, and other related subjects. The book also presents five practice tests with answers, charts, reference tables, and a helpful glossary. Barron's Easy Way books focus on both practical and academic topics, presenting fundamental subject matter in clear, understandable language. Equally popular as self-teaching manuals and supplementary texts for classroom use, they are written to help students improve their grades and review subject matter before tests. They are also useful for introducing general readers to a new career-related skill. Easy Way titles cover virtually all subjects that are taught on advanced high school and college-101 levels. Subject heads and key phrases are set in a second color.
