Description:

This newFoundations of General, Organic, and Biochemistryis designed to help undergraduate, health and science-related majors, understand key concepts and appreciate the significant connections between chemistry, health, disease, and the treatment of disease.Foundations, just like its parent text, strikes a balance between theoretical and practical chemistry, while emphasizing material that is unique to health-related studies. Foundations of General, Organic, and Biochemistryis designed for the one-semester, or two-semester, allied health chemistry course. This text has an easy-to-follow problem-solving approach, vivid illustrations, and engaging applications including timely "Chemistry at the Crime Scene" applications with "For Further Understanding" questions that follow to help the students think through what they just read. The art program, engaging and thought-provoking questions, problems, and discussion topics make this book appealing to students and instructors alike.
