The book that defined the liberal arts chemistry course, Chemistry for Changing Times remains the most visually appealing and readable introduction on the subject. The Thirteenth Edition increases its focus on student engagement – with revised “Have You Ever Wondered?” questions, new Learning Objectives in each chapter linked to end of chapter problems, and new Green Chemistry content, closely integrated with the text. Abundant applications and examples fill each chapter, and material is updated throughout to mirror the latest scientific developments in a fast-changing world. Compelling chapter opening photos, a focus on Green Chemistry, and the “It DOES Matter” features highlight current events and enable students to relate to the book more readily.
I bought this book as a text for class I am taking. This book is interesting as it is current and has real world application references. The section and chapter reviews are helpful in reinforcing the readers retention of the material and comprehension. I like the Green Chemistry sections at the end of each chapter. I feel it brings the lesson around full circle.

This is a helpful accompaniment for students using the main Quantitative Chemical Analysis, eighth edition, by Daniel C. Harris. The manual provides complete, step-by-step, worked-out solutions for all problems and exercises in the main text, allowing students to review and further develop their approach to them.
Step by step details and explanations allowing the reader/student to fully understand each step in a problem. I currently have 100% in the class third way through the semester and this is because I am able to look in the manual to ensure that I am doing the homework problems correctly and I am efficiently understanding the material.
If it were not for this manual, I probably would have had to go to my instructor after every lesson for help. This manual is a life saver and it breaks down the solution to every problem step by step!!! It really increased my understanding of the material and how to work related problems. I would highly recommend this manual..you won't regret it!

The only way to survive this course is a good instructor and practice, practice, practice. But it has to be "perfect practice". While this solutions manual does give additional guidance on the in-chapter problems, that is NOT the real reason to buy it. I worked through most of the back of the chapter problems - and, as is the case with struggling OChem student - often came up with "solutions" that were totally wrong! If I hadn't had this book, I would have not known where I went wrong or how to proceed.
If you are prepared to WORK HARD on learning organic chemistry, I can't recommend this solutions manual more highly. While your mileage may vary, I am NOT a chemistry brain, but still managed to earn an A for both semesters of OChem and scored 89th percentile on the American Chemical Society OChem Exam.
The answers to exercises from the accompanying textbook are accurate and very helpful for checking whether you're correct or not. However, if you don't get the correct answer, this "study guide" does little to explain how the solution is obtained. The practice tests in the study guide are rather easy compared to the material covered in the book and in most classes, but they were still useful in reviewing for exams. Overall, this manual was very helpful throughout my organic chemistry course provided I could figure out how to get to the answers on my own after seeing them.
I just came here to say that this is the greatest solutions manual I've ever encountered. In a world where solutions manuals get sold that don't always even include an answer to every question, this thing is relatively spectacular. It answers all the questions in chapter and post chapter, has study guide sections between chapters, and often elaborates on solutions to tell you exactly why an answer is the way it is, especially if it's strange or surprising. This is invaluable for things like O-Chem.
