Essentials of General Chemistry is an ideal choice for instructors who want a shorter, less expensive core text that still supports a typical general chemistry course. The text covers the same topical scope as Ebbing/Gammon General Chemistry and retains all of the hallmark qualities of its parent text, including its ability to teach quantitative problem solving and its focus on conceptual understanding and visualization.
