Lebih menarik belajar Kimia pake buku ini daripada pake buku pegangan anak SMU. Thanks to my big bro yg minjemin buku ini supaya gue belajar mengerti Kimia, bukan sekedar dapat nilai Kimia yang bagus ^^
This is the textbook for the class was taking. I am so glad to get through with this book! It was a good class, but it took away ALL my reading time!
