Preface: This book is designed to help students do well in their first chemistry course, especially those who have little or no chemistry background. It can be used effectively in a course preparatory to a general college chemistry course as well as in a course in chemistry for liberal arts students. It should also provide additional assistance to students in the first semester of a chemistry course for nurses and others in the allied health fields. It will prove to be of value in a high school chemistry course and in a general chemistry course for majors.
The book aims to help the student develop both problem-solving skills and skill in precise reading and interpreting scientific problems and questions. Analogies to everyday life introduce certain types of problems to make the underlying principles less abstract. Many of the problems were devised to clarify particular points often confused by beginning students. To ensure mastery, the book often presents problems in parts, then asks the same question as an entity, to see if the student can do the parts without the aid of the fragmented question. It provides some figures that have proved helpful to a generation of students. The author gratefully acknowledges the help of the editors at McGraw-Hill.

TO THE STUDENT:
This book is designed to help you understand chemistry fundamentals. Learning chemistry requires that you master chemical terminology and be able to perform calculations with ease. Toward these ends, many of the examples and problems are formulated to alert you to questions that sound different but are actually the same (Problem 3.16 for example) or questions that are different but sound very similar (Problems 5.13 and 7.25, for example). You should not attempt to memorize the solutions to the problems. (There is enough to memorize, without that.) Instead, you must try to understand the concepts involved. Your instructor and texts usually teach generalities (e.g., Atoms of all main group elements except noble gases have the number of outermost electrons equal to their group number.), but the instructor asks specific questions on exams (e.g., How many outermost electrons are there in a phosphorus atom?) You must not only know the principle, but also in what situations it applies.
You must practice by working many problems, because in addition to the principles, you must get accustomed to the many details involved in solving problems correctly. The key to success in chemistry is working very many problems! To get the most from this book, use a 5 × 8 card to cover up the solutions while you are doing the problems. Do not look at the answer first. It is easy to convince yourself that you know how to do a problem by looking at the answer, but generating the answer yourself, as you must do on exams, is not the same. After you have finished, compare your result with the answer given. If the method differs, it does not mean that your method is necessarily incorrect. If your answer is the same, your method is probably correct. Otherwise, try to understand what the difference is, and where you made a mistake, if you did so.
Some of the problems given after the text are very short and/or very easy (Problems 5.12 and 5.14, for example). They are designed to emphasize a particular point. After you get the correct answer, ask yourself why such a question was asked. Many other problems give analogies to everyday life, to help you understand a chemical principle (Problems 2.13 with 2.14, 4.6, 5.15 with 5.16, 7.13 through 7.16 and 10.41, for example). Make sure you understand the chemical meaning of the terms presented throughout the semester. For example, “significant figures” means something very different in chemical calculations than in economic discussions. Special terms used for the first time in this book will be italicized. Whenever you encounter such a term, use it repeatedly until you thoroughly understand its meaning. If necessary, use the Glossary to find the meanings of unfamiliar terms.
Always use the proper units with measurable quantities. It makes quite a bit of difference if your pet is 4 in. tall or 4 ft tall! After Chapter 2, always use the proper number of significant figures in your calculations. Do yourself a favor and use the same symbols and abbreviations for chemical quantities that are used in the text. If you use a different symbol, you might become confused later when that symbol is used for a different quantity. Some of the problems are stated in parts. After you do the problem by solving the various parts, see if you would know how to solve the same problem if only the last part were asked. The conversion figure on page 348 shows all the conversions presented in the book. As you proceed, add the current conversions from the figure to your solution techniques.
