Chemistry: third edition

Building on the success of the second edition, this truly accessible textbook comprehensively covers the 2008 Chemistry specifications for the IB Diploma Programme and the Cambridge International Examinations.

The book also has a companion website which is free to book users providing extra resources. Written by authors with many years' experience of teaching, examining and writing, this is an ideal resource for class or independent study.

The book includes the following features: 

  • 'How science works' feature boxes focus on this key element of the new specifications
  • 'Stretch and challenge' boxes challenge more able students, enabling them to achieve the highest grades
  • 'Science in context' boxes encourage students to relate their learning to the world around them
  • Summaries at the end of every chapter help students with revision
  • 'Test yourself' questions throughout the text enable students to monitor their own progress in preparation for their exams 
  • 'Remember this' boxes highlight the key facts.

The website provides the following additional resources: 

  • Practice questions (and answers) allow students to test their understanding of the material just covered
