Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Distinguished by its superior allied health focus and integration of technology, The Eighth Edition of Seager and Slabaugh's INTRODUCTORY CHEMISTRY FOR TODAY meets students' needs through diverse applications, examples, boxes, interactive technology tools, and — new to this edition — real life case studies. The Eighth Edition dispels students' inherent fear of chemistry and instills an appreciation for the role chemistry plays in our daily lives through a rich pedagogical structure and an accessible writing style with lucid explanations. In addition, the book provides greater support in both problem-solving and critical-thinking skills--the skills necessary for student success. By demonstrating the importance of chemistry concepts to students' future careers, the authors not only help students set goals, but also help them focus on achieving them.
