“Chapter 9 is well organized and includes an appropriate selection of material given the overall topic. The in-chapter problems are well chosen and presented in a timely manner. The illustrations are very helpful and there are lots of end-of-chapter problems for chemistry students to work.” – Steven Holmgren; Montana State University
“We have found the McMurry textbooks to be unique in their utility for our two cycle approach and we are able to efficiently service two groups of students with very different needs. For these reasons; we have been satisfied and see no reason for change.” – Robert Cameron; Samford University
