Required and Optional Texts
The following texts and materials are required for the 2018-2019 course year:
While this text is available from Cengage with access to online aids, I do not require access to the OWL supplemental materials required by the publisher. You may therefore purchase paper or electronic copies from any source providing you obtain the ninth edition.
This text is also available from VitalSource at Chemistry and Chemical Reactivity, 9/E.
A 180-day rental is about $45.
Note that eBook downloads can be tricky and access to the internet may be required for refreshes should you lose your files for any reason. It is also often frustrating to have to page back and forth to look up data in the appendices when doing homework exercises. Also, you don't get permanent access to the text unless you pay a substantially higher price. However, if you anticipate traveling or situations where you must study away from home, eBook versions on your laptop or tablet are far more portable than heavy textbooks.
Please note that lab work is not optional!. In addition to textbooks, students will need to purchase sufficient equipment and chemicals to perform a minimum number of labs. See the Lab Work page for details on required chemicals and equipment.
You may order all texts through Scholars Online Bookstore.
