Pretty useless textbook for how my professor assigned it. For a descriptive, undergraduate-level inorganic chemistry....this isn’t the book that needs used. This is far more hands on and easily graduate-level. Can’t attest to the text any further than that since it couldn’t be used as an adequate resource for my class.

UBC, Chem 202 - Inorganic Chemistry. Not a required textbook (was for a more advanced inorganic chem course). Not an easy read, usually took a while and repetitive reading to understand the concepts explained, but did help me to better grasp the material taught in class - probably what enabled me to pass this course...

This book was okay. When I was really confused, it was no help. For the things I sort of understood from lecture, it was useful. I loved the class but I felt like the book came up short in meeting my requirements.
I laughed, I cried...
