    I am looking for a very concise book on chemistry that is under or equal to 300 pages.

    For beginners? For review? Applied? Descriptive? Theory & foundations?

    Yes, for beginners. And what I am talking about is general chemistry.

    You might try finding a first edition of Pauling's General Chemistry, 250 pp..

    at 300 pages it's not going to be very concise.

    In High school and first year college, Sienko and Plane, Chemistry is quite good. But it is old

    You might want to have a look at the first hundred pages or so of "Chemical Principles: the quest for insight" by Atkins and Jones.
    You can buy a used edition (I bought the first edition for a penny) on Amazon or other used books stores and it will have the bonus of a full-fledged book attached to it.
