Essentials of General Chemistry, Second Edition, embodies the core and essence of Ebbing and Gammon's highly successful General Chemistry. There are several reasons for distilling a text as comprehensive as General Chemistry into an Essentials text. Essentials of General Chemistry can be completely covered in two semesters without omitting any fundamental areas. It also facilitates the use of a common curriculum at large universities and colleges where there are many instructors and sections. This is a book for the students, and we must not forget that a textbook is the best place for a student to learn the concepts of chemistry. Students can read this shortened version in its entirety, and it is a first-rate book at a lower cost. Essentials of General Chemistry offers students a friendly, challenging, and stimulating environment for learning and developing the principles of chemistry.
