Chemistry textbook?

So I haven't taken a Chemistry class in about 10 years and even then I did horrible. I think this was because I just didn't care. I'm confident I can pick up the material now. Anyway, this fall I have to take Chem 1 and want to be prepared. What's a good (popular) undergrad Chemistry textbook? Thanks.

There are a million of them, but either Zumdahl or McMurry will give you the right coverage.
 
I'm using Brady and can reccomend it. It covers, from what I reckon, the first or first two years of standard chemistry, including bonding theory, structure, thermodynamics, thermochemistry, organic and inorganic chemistry, plus an appendix with more advanced orbital theory.
