physics and chemistry chapters include problems that range from quite easy to moderately challenging. The ability to work out such problems sig- nifies a real understanding of these subjects. Outline solutions (not just answers) for the odd-numbered problems are given at the back of the book.
“The multiple-choice exercises and the questions and problems are a very nice feature of this book and it is definitely above average. . . . There is a good balance between the conceptual versus computational questions.”
Omar Franco Guerrero, University of Delaware
