Low Price Guarantee
We Take School POs
All of our bargain books are brand new, perfectly readable and represent a tremendous value! The bargain books are, however, publisher overstocks and remainders that TRW purchases at deep discounts. As a result, they may have a small mark through the UPC bar code or a small mark on the side of the book. This is simply to mark the books so they cannot be sent back to a publisher. Because of this, bargain books are non returnable to TRW unless they are damaged. Please consider this before ordering.

The books in this revised and updated series are solid introductions to chemistry. There's enough overlap among the volumes that they can be read in any order (without flipping back and forth), and errors are few. The choppy writing and busy design, which includes diagrams, color photos, and text boxes, are drawbacks. The periodic table and charts of chemicals and elements are appended. Reading list, websites.

Gr 6–8— These updated titles were originally published in 2002. Explanations are concise and clear without being oversimplified, and the arrangement is attractive and open. Colorful diagrams, drawings, and photographs appear on every page and nicely complement the texts. In addition, supplemental information appears in boxed areas. The open layout and large, bold type size will appeal to reluctant readers. The explanations and visuals provided for specific chemical reactions are especially helpful. Each volume includes anywhere from two to six simple experiments related to the subject at hand and a spread devoted to the periodic table of elements. The further-reading sections have been updated to include current Web sites and books. Solid additions, especially for libraries that do not own the first editions.—Maren Ostergard, King County Library System, Issaquah, WA
