Timberlake’s Chemistry: An Introduction to General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry is designed to help prepare students for health-related careers, such as nursing, dietetics, respiratory therapy, and environmental or agricultural science. Assuming no prior knowledge of chemistry, it aims to make this course an engaging and positive experience by relating the structure and behavior of matter to its role in health and the environment. Timberlake maintains the clear, friendly writing style and the real-world, health-related applications that have made this text a leader in the discipline. The Eleventh Edition introduces more problem-solving strategies—including new Concept Checks, more Guides to Problem Solving, and more conceptual, challenge, and combined problems. CourseSmart textbooks do not include any media or print supplements that come packaged with the bound book.
