General Chemistry I and II Texts
General Chemistry: It's Part of Your World
This is the text for GenChem I (Chem 201) classes. This is a "working text" with work-in Examples and other types of fill-ins. The text is written in a more conversational style for clearer understanding. This text is also leaner than many other General Chemistry texts. The online text is accessed by the links below.
