I rented this book for my daughter to use in her college Chemistry course. It is a very detailed book with lots of pictures, tables, and graphs

Julia Burdge did most of her undergraduate work at Iowa State University, completing her bachelor’s degree and Master’s degree in inorganic chemistry at the University of South Florida in Tampa. in analytical chemistry at the University of Idaho. I rented this book for my daughter to use in her college Chemistry course. It is a very detailed book with lots of pictures, tables, and graphs. I was very glad that there was an option to rent this book; it saved a lot of money.

Unfortunately, Julia Burdge once taught at the University of Akron and they adopted her book for 3 semesters before deciding that it was terrible. I've personally spoken with several professors who agree that the quality of the book is subpar. I've also studied with other students in small groups and we've agreed that it is hard to understand this textbook. I took both Chemistry 1 and 2 with Burdge's textbook as the assigned book. I was lucky to have those other chemistry books that I mentioned above because I was actually quizzed and tested on material that was not found in Burdge's book.

Chemistry, First Edition, by Julia Burdge has been created to bridge the gap in the McGraw-Hill general chemistry offerings. This textbook offers a clear writing style written with the students in mind. Julia uses her background of teaching hundreds of general chemistry students per year and creates content to offer more detailed explanation on areas where she knows they have problems.

Sitting down with the art house, Julia Burdge worked with the artist to create the style and major art pieces in her text. Out of these discussions, came the creation of the Visualizing Art two-page spreads which detail a process for the students and provide them with the answer to “What is the Point?”.

With outstanding art, a consistent problem-solving approach, interesting applications woven throughout the chapters, and a wide range of end-of-chapter problems, this is a solid first edition text.

Well written textbook.
The topics are easily introduced and transitions easily from one subject area to the other.
Chemistry is a difficult subject for me but I enjoy reading this book. I actually get it.
This is the best chemistry book I've read in all my college life (way better than those written by your college professor).
The pictures and illustrations are neat, color choices are good.
It's big and heavy but I keep mine in my comfort zone(next to my bed).
With this book I should definitely pass this class.
Good luck with your studies!!!!

The picture is slightly misleading as the book is not in color.
(the point was to show the presence of bismuth in a crystal, which is colorful)
Which I didnt really care about whatsoever.

The problems showed in this manual are worked out with most every step involved.
Later in the book they skip some steps as to not have a million paged book, which is nice for the more experienced student.

Julia Burdge is a co-author for Brown, Lemay, Bursten's Chemistry: The Central Science, 9th edition. I consider the BLB Chemistry textbook to be the gold standard when reviewing a chemistry textbook. Silberberg's chemistry textbook comes in second.

Her 1st edition textbook appears to be more interested in showing you all kinds of math problems throughout the chapters and does not go into enough detail or explain the science and theory that goes on in Chemistry. The theory aspect is really important, especially when you're going to higher level chemistry courses such as Organic Chemistry. There must a balance in a textbook between being introductory and having enough of the detailed information.

Another problem with this textbook is that it is practically a mirror image of Raymond Chang's textbook. Throughout the textbook, many charts and tables have been copied from Chang's textbook. One such table is the solubility rules in Chapter 4, which probably has to be the most confusing solulibity rules chart out of any textbook.

Unfortunately, Julia Burdge once taught at the University of Akron and they adopted her book for 3 semesters before deciding that it was terrible. I've personally spoken with several professors who agree that the quality of the book is subpar. I've also studied with other students in small groups and we've agreed that it is hard to understand this textbook. I went ahead and purchased a copy of both Brown, Lemay, Bursten's Chemistry: The Central Science and Silberberg's textbook and used those instead.

I took both Chemistry 1 and 2 with Burdge's textbook as the assigned book. I was lucky to have those other chemistry books that I mentioned above because I was actually quizzed and tested on material that was not found in Burdge's book. Although the material was presented in the lecture, an adequate textbook should contain all the necessary material so that a student can go back and read the applicable sections in context and obtain a more thorough understanding.

If you want a book that just has a bunch of math problems dealing with Chemistry and skimps on explaining concepts, then what you have is a Julia Burdge textbook.

I'd recommend finding out from your professors if it is okay to purchase alternate textbooks such as the BLB textbook or Silberberg and use those instead.

I cannot in good conscience recommend this textbook.

One last thing: Dr. William Donovan who is in charge of Chemistry education at the University of Akron wrote a section for this textbook. In hindsight, after all the problems that students experienced over the last few semesters (student grades actually went down), I'm willing to bet he regets having this as the assigned textbook. Thankfully, he along with the other professors came to their senses and will be going back to the Silberberg textbook starting Fall 2010 as they were using Silberberg before they adopted this terrible excuse for a Chemistry textbook.

The market is already flooded with many Chemistry textbooks and there was never a need for this one.

The first edition of this book is so close to being exactly the same as the second, that buying the second is not only stupid but unnecessary (unless it is absolutely "required" by the school you attend). The only variation between the two editions are a few editorial corrections and some rearranged pages. I was able to get an excellent grade in my gen. chem. class. Great alternative to the editions sold at universities!

It is what it is, and it serves its purpose! Includes explanations for odd problems

Arrived on time as promised. Great help in my studies.
Good price for the book, has little footnotes here and there, which btw are all wrong lol. Whoever owned this book surely had a hard time or didn't pass chemistry...but that's just a second hand thought. Perfect conditions would recommend from this buyer again. Thx for the cheap book!
