Useful Principles in Chemistry for Agriculture and Nursing Students, 2nd Edition
  • Description
  • E-Book
  • Author(s) Information
The book is a simple-to-understand low-priced Chemistry text with many worked out examples in topics which students have the most problems. It is intended to serve as a guide to the teaching of Chemistry on the one hand, and for the student's own understanding of the principles in the areas they feel deficient. The material is presented in very simple English, and several worked out calculations in problematic areas have been included.  In addition, the presentation is like the teacher is talking to the student and consequently, the student should be at ease in understanding the Chemistry concepts and the examples given should bring them closer to liking the subject.
