Written for students taking either the University of Cambridge Advanced Level examinations or the International Baccalaureate examinations, this guidebook covers essential topics and concepts under both stipulated chemistry syllabi. The book is written in such a way as to guide the reader through the understanding and applications of essential chemical concepts using the problem solving approach. The authors have also retained the popular discourse feature from their previous two books — Understanding Advanced Physical Inorganic Chemistry and Understanding Advanced Organic and Analytical Chemistry — to help learners better understand and see for themselves how the concepts should be applied to solve problems. Based on the Socratic Method, questions are implanted throughout the book to help facilitate the reader's development in forming logical conclusions of concepts and the way they are being applied to explain the problems. In addition, the authors have also included important summaries and concept maps to help learners recall, remember, reinforce and apply the fundamental chemical concepts in a simple way.

Written for students taking either the University of Cambridge O-level examinations or the GCSE examinations, this guidebook covers essential topics and concepts under stipulated chemistry syllabi. The topics are explored through an explanatory and inquiry-based approach. They are interrelated and easy to understand, with succinct explanations/examples being included, especially on areas that students frequently find difficult. Topics address the whys and hows behind key concepts to be mastered, so that the concepts are made understandable and intuitive for students. The focus is on conceptual learning so as to equip students with knowledge for critical learning and problem solving. The authors have also retained the popular discourse feature from their previous four books — Understanding Advanced Physical Inorganic Chemistry, Understanding Advanced Organic and Analytical Chemistry, Understanding Advanced Chemistry Through Problem Solving, and Understanding Basic Chemistry — to help the learners better understand and see for themselves, how the concepts should be applied during problems solving. Based on the Socratic Method, questions are implanted throughout the book to help facilitate the reader's development in forming logical conclusions of concepts and the way they are being applied to explain the problems. In addition, the authors have also included important summaries and concept maps to help the learners to recall, remember, reinforce and apply the fundamental chemical concepts in a simple way. Through their many years of teaching experiences, the authors have acquired a sound awareness of common students' misconceptions which are relayed through the questions and thus help to reinforce concepts learnt. This book is essential and useful to help students adequately prepare for the high-stake examinations.

This book is a continuation of authors' previous six books — Understanding Advanced Physical Inorganic Chemistry, Understanding Advanced Organic and Analytical Chemistry, Understanding Advanced Chemistry Through Problem Solving Vol. I & II, Understanding Basic Chemistry and Understanding Basic Chemistry Through Problem Solving, retaining the main refutational characteristics of the previous books with the strategic inclusion of think-aloud questions to promote conceptual understanding during an experimental planning. These essential questions would make learners aware of the rationale behind each procedural step, the amount of chemical used and types of apparatus that are appropriate for the experiment. The book provides a fundamental important scaffolding to aid students to create their own understanding of how to plan an experiment based on the given reagent and apparatus. It guides the students in integrating the various concepts that they have learnt into a coherent and meaningful conceptual network during experimental planning. Existing A-level or IB guidebooks generally introduce concepts in a matter-of-fact manner. This book adds a unique pedagogical edge which few can rival. This book is essential and useful in order for students to be adequately prepared for their high stake examinations.

Preface The Essentials of Physical Chemistry has been written for BSc students. It has been national best-seller for more than 65 years. It has been used by more than 2 million students. It is 26 editions old. It really has been that long. A lot of things have changed since then. We also changed with every edition so that you could get the best. In this new edition we have retained all those features that made it a classic. Recent reviews from some teachers are reproduced. These sum up book’s high-quality and study-approach : The Essentials of Physical Chemistry is best summarised by “classic text, modern presentation”. This simple phrase underlines its strong emphasis on fundamental skills and concepts. As in previous editions, clearly explained step-by-step problem-solving strategies continue to be the strength of this student-friendly text. This revision builds on its highly praised style that has earned this text a reputation as the voice of authority in Physical Chemistry. The authors have built four colour art program that has yet to be seen in India ! The acknowledged leader and standard in Physical Chemistry, this book maintains its effective and proven features – clear and friendly writing style, scientific accuracy, strong exercises, step-by-step solved problems, modern approach and design. The organisation and presentation are done with marvelous clarity. The book is visually beautiful and the authors communicate their enthusiasm and enjoyment of the subject in every chapter. This textbook is currently in use at hundreds of colleges and universities throughout the country and is a national best-seller. In this edition, the authors continue to do what they do best, focus on the important material of the course and explain it in a concise, clear way. I have found this book to be very easy to follow. There are hundreds of computer-generated coloured diagrams, graphs, photos and tables which aid in understanding the text. The book goes step-by-step, so you don’t get lost. No wonder it is a market-leader ! STUDENT FRIENDLY Many BSc students do not have a good background in Physical Chemistry. This examinationoriented text is written with these students in mind. The language is simple, explanations clear, and presentation very systematic. Our commitment to simplicity is total ! Concept-density per page has been kept low. We feel that this is a big time saver and essential to quick-learning and retention of the subject matter. www.angoothachaap.blogspot.com www.angoothachaap.blogspot.com STRESS IS ON UNDERSTANDING This book will help you overcome the fear of Physical Chemistry. Stress is on understanding and not on memorisation. Topics which usually confuse the students are explained in greater detail than commonly done.

Your choice of a book can mean success or failure. Because today you need a book that can help you streak ahead of competition and succeed. No-one knows more about your needs than us. It is a tall claim, but it is true ! NEW IN THIS EDITION The new edition of Essentials of Physical Chemistry contains numerous discussions, illustrations, and exercises aimed at overcoming common misconceptions. It has become increasingly clear from our own teaching experience that students often struggle with Physical Chemistry because they misunderstand many of the fundamental concepts. In this text, we have gone to great lengths to provide illustrations and explanations aimed at giving students more accurate pictures of the fundamental ideas of chemistry. In this New Edition we have retained all that was judged good in the previous edition. However, a number of changes have been made in this new edition. Subject matter has been updated. This edition provides quick access to the important facts and concepts. It includes every important principle, equation, theorem, and concept. The new syllabus recommended by the University Grants Commission has been our model. This edition now includes two new chapters : Mathematical Concepts (Chapter 32), and Introduction to Computers (Chapter 33). VALUE ADDITION 1. Problem-Solving. To a great extent, a student’s understanding of chemistry depends on his or her ability to solve and analyse problems. We have structured this book with the idea of weaving the techniques of problem-solving throughout the content, so that the student is systematically guided and challenged to view chemistry as a series of solvable problems. Question-style has changed over the years. Latest university questions are given at the end of each chapter to show these trends. Step-by-step answers are provided for the in-chapter problems. This book contains more than 1600 latest university questions. It also contains more than 1600 multiple-choice questions. By solving these problems you can precisely know your own success-level. This is the book which the examiners use ! 2. Four-Colour Art Program. One of the distinctive features of the text is its visual impact. This is the first Indian Physical Chemistry textbook to be completely done in four-colour and on computer. Colour graphics, illustrations, and real pictures have been extensively used to www.angoothachaap.blogspot.com www.angoothachaap.blogspot.com highlight and reinforce the important points. Colour has also been used to highlight change and concepts. 3. Guidelines are provided to help you understand concepts that are considered difficult and catch careless mistakes before exams. 4. Scientific Accuracy has been checked and rechecked. Subject matter is modern and error-free. 5. Extensive Index has been provided for quick cross-reference. WE WISH YOU SUCCESS !
