Hey everyone, I was hoping someone could point me towards a good General Chemistry textbook. I just finished General Chemistry I last semester, and I'm taking part II next semester. We didn't have a required text for the class (nor did we even really need one), but I want to get a good comprehensive textbook for reference and further reading in the future. I was looking at Linus Pauling's "General Chemistry" text, https://www.amazon.com/dp/160796298...TF8&colid=1C820W0WD74GP&coliid=I2EPIW3116IRU8 . It seems to have overwhelmingly positive reviews. There are two versions of it, the one linked above, and another one from the Dover Books series, that appears to be the exact same book from a different publisher, and in paperback. Does anyone have any experience with this book? I figure Linus Pauling is one of the greats in chemistry, so his text is probably a good one. Does anyone have any other recommendations? They would be much appreciated.
