Main Description
Chang's best-selling general chemistry textbook takes a traditional approach and is often considered a student and teacher favorite. The book features a straightforward, clear writing style and proven problem-solving strategies. It continues the tradition of providing a firm foundation in chemical concepts and principles while presenting a broad range of topics in a clear, concise manner.

The tradition of Chemistry has a new addition with co-author, Kenneth Goldsby from Florida State University, adding variations to the 11th edition. The organization of the chapter order has changed with nuclear chemistry moving up in the chapter order. There is a new problem type—Interpreting, Modeling, and Estimating—fully demonstrating what a real life chemist does on a daily basis. The authors have added over 340 new problems to the book.
