The Seventh Edition of Zumdahl and DeCoste's best-selling INTRODUCTORY CHEMISTRY: A FOUNDATION that combines enhanced problem-solving structure with substantial pedagogy to enable students to become strong independent problem solvers in the introductory course and beyond. Capturing student interest through early coverage of chemical reactions, accessible explanations and visualizations, and an emphasis on everyday applications, the authors explain chemical concepts by starting with the basics, using symbols or diagrams, and conclude by encouraging students to test their own understanding of the solution. This step-by-step approach has already helped hundreds of thousands of students master chemical concepts and develop problem-solving skills. The book is known for its focus on conceptual learning and for the way it motivates students by connecting chemical principles to real-life experiences in chapter-opening discussions and Chemistry in Focus boxes.The Seventh Edition now adds a questioning pedagogy to in-text examples to help students learn what questions they should be asking themselves while solving problems, offers a revamped art program to better serve visual learners, and includes a significant number of revised end-of-chapter questions. The book's unsurpassed teaching and learning resources include a robust technology package that now offers a choice between OWL: Online Web Learning and Enhanced WebAssign.

Teach the course your way with INTRODUCTORY CHEMISTRY. Available in three flexible formats (a standard paperbound edition, a loose-leaf edition, and a hybrid edition). This text allows you to tailor the order of chapters to accommodate your particular needs, not only by presenting topics so they never assume prior knowledge but also by including any and all necessary preview or review information needed to learn that topic. The authors' question-and-answer presentation allows students to actively learn chemistry while studying an assignment. This approach is reflected in three words of advice and encouragement that are repeated throughout the book: Learn It Now! This edition integrates new features such as outstanding technological resources, coached problems in a two-column format, and enhanced art and photography, all of which dovetail with the authors' active learning approach. Even more flexibility is provided in the new edition by the Cengage YouBook, an electronic version of the text that features interactivity, integrated media, and additional algebra coverage.

Distinguished by its superior allied health focus and integration of technology, Seager and Slabaugh’s INTRODUCTORY CHEMISTRY FOR TODAY, Seventh Edition continues to meet students’ needs through diverse applications, examples, boxes, and outstanding technology tools. Prompts throughout the new edition lead students to OWL (web-based learning system) -- two unique online programs that extend the lessons of the text and help students study smarter. In addition to the many resources found in OWL, the book and website contain questions modeled after the Nursing School and Allied Health Entrance Exams. INTRODUCTORY CHEMISTRY FOR TODAY 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 and by providing important career information online, the authors not only help students set goals but also help them focus on achieving them. This textbook is identical to the longer book by this author called General, Organic, and Biochemistry with these exceptions: it contains fewer chapters and those chapters are numbered differently than they are in the longer book. OWL does not have a separate course (with the eBook or without eBook) for the shorter book, so links on this page to purchase access will take you to the longer book.
