Homework Helpers: Chemistry is a user-friendly review book that will make every student--or parent trying to help their child feel like he or she has a private Chemistry tutor. Concepts are explained in clear, easy-to-understand language, and problems are worked out with step-by-step methods that are easy to follow. Each lesson comes with numerous review questions and answer keynotes that explain each correct answer and why it's correct.This book covers all of the topics in a typical one-year Chemistry curriculum, including:A systematic approach to problem solving, conversions, and the use of units.Naming compounds, writing formulas, and balancing chemical equations.Gas laws, chemical kinetics, acids and bases, electrochemistry, and more.While Homework Helpers: Chemistryis an excellent review for any standardized Chemistry test, including the SAT-II, its real value is in providing support and guidance during the year's entire course of study.

The author explains most things very clearly. I sometimes wish things were organized a little differently or introduced more explicitly for the sake of clarity. Also, there are some errors that can make things confusing. (Like an answer that doesn't match the question asked, or an incorrect formula here and there [The formula for carbonate on p 147 is incorrect.]) Mostly a helpful book, though, especially if used alongside actual class coursework.

Oh my goodness, if your desire is to pass your college chemistry class this book is a MUST! After leaving chemistry class I was a lost soul, I actually considered changing my major so that I didn't have to take this class. People, this book is GOLD, and you know the value of gold! I failed my fist quiz and it's because I didn't have this book yet, since then we've had 5 tests and my lowest grade is a "B" I'm extremely pleased! Thank you Mr. Curran, I certainly wasn't a fan of ANY science, but I now love chemistry, I would buy any book with your name on it, book is truly "God Sent"

Got this to aid homeschool studies in chemistry for 8th grader but it was setting on the shelf until he took a chemistry class at a local Think Tank and they were using the book.

You will need to supplement content with addition resources if student doesn't easily "get" chemistry. Even if they do, they will still need supplemental resources.

Clean pages (not busy and distracting). Good testing (lesson and chapter) included in the book which is why it gets a 5 from me.

Son had Chem 1 in college last year. He did well but wasn’t very confident. He was concerned he would forget stuff over the summer before taking Chem 2 this year. He worked through this book over the summer and it totally built his confidence. He now says Chem 2 is easy and he just excitedly texted me his first exam score. It was great!

This book is much like the Homework Helpers Physics -- great for beginners and in conjunction with real textbooks, but not as a standalone. Both are just too short and miss some vital topics, and don't go into enough depth on some. Very good buy, though, if used correctly or just learning the basics for the sake of learning.

I like the Homework Helpers series (have the Chemistry). Clean pages (meaning not so busy one doesn't know where to direct one's eye to understand the material) with chapter testing.

If something is not understood, there is a plethora of online resources to supplement.

This book is SUPERB on the topics it does contain. It studies mechanics, electricity, magnetism, thermodynamics and heat, and nuclear/atomic physics. All of these topics are written well and explained clearly; like I said, it's very good on the topics it DOES contain. The only problem I've found with this book is that it doesn't include anything on Relativity or Quantum Mechanics. Yes, it does go in depth about light, photons, and the wave-particle duality of light. Very helpful overall in the basics, but it doesn't go into the really advanced topics. I can't tell if this was meant for College Physics or high-school physics........either way, the explanations were great and it is, really, a great book. If you're taking physics on any level, get this book.
Pros:
- Concise
- Well-written and well laid out
- Covers most topics pretty well
- Great for beginners

Cons:
- Some topics barely get talked about
- Some topics aren't talked about at all -- ballistic pendulum and others
- Many of the examples/problems are too simple and only cover very basic scenarios, when much more is needed

Overall, a really good buy, but is best used in conjunction with a real textbook.
