A new edition of this text is available here
AUTHORS: Seager/Slabaugh - ©2008
Distinguished by its superior allied health focus and integration of technology, Seager and Slabaugh's INTRODUCTORY CHEMISTRY FOR TODAY, Sixth Edition continues to meet students’ needs through numerous allied health-related applications, examples, boxes, and outstanding technology tools. Prompts throughout the new edition lead students to CengageNOW (student assessment program) and OWL (homework management system)--two unique online programs that extend the lessons of the text and help users study smarter. In addition to the many resources found in CengageNOW and OWL, the book’s powerful website contains questions modeled after the Nursing School and Allied Health Entrance Exams. CHEMISTRY FOR TODAY dispels users' inherent fear of chemistry and instills an appreciation for the role chemistry plays in our daily lives through a rich pedagogical structure and an accessible writing style with lucid explanations. In addition, Seager and Slabaugh's CHEMISTRY FOR TODAY provides greater support in both problem-solving and critical-thinking skills--the skills students will need to succeed. By demonstrating how this information will be important to a student’s future career and providing important career information online, the authors not only help students set goals but also focus on achieving them. This textbook is identical to the longer book by this author called General, Organic, and Biochemistry with these exceptions: it contains fewer chapters and those chapters are numbered differently than they are in the longer book. OWL does not have a separate course (with the eBook or without eBook) for the shorter book, so links on this page to purchase access will take you to the longer book.
