Key Benefit: With an expanded focus on critical thinking and problem solving, the new Seventh Edition of Introductory Chemistry: Concepts and Critical Thinking prepares students for success in Introductory Chemistry courses. Unlike other introductory chemistry texts, all materials --the textbook, student solutions manual, laboratory manual, instructor's manual and test item file -- are written by the author and tightly integrated to work together most effectively. Math and problem solving are covered early in the text; Corwin builds student confidence and ability through innovative pedagogy and technology formulated to meet the needs of today's learners. By presenting chemistry in a clear and interesting way, students to leave their first chemistry course with a positive impression, a set of new skills, and the desire to learn more.
