Hi everyone,

I was wondering what you all recommend for studying/reviewing Introductory University Chemistry. I heard good things about the Silberberg textbooks, while I used Zumdahl at my school. So I was wondering, do you all think that Silberberg is better or should I maybe study a bit from both?

I've used Zumdahl in the past, and I enjoyed/learned from it, but I've never used Silberberg. You say that you've used Zumdahl before too, of course, so I suppose my experiences with just the one book wouldn't help you too much. If you have both available to you, it can't hurt to check them both out and then make a decision from there.

Silberberg is more thorough and better organized.

omz, after looking through it myself I would also agree with you that it is better organized and does seem to have a more seamless integration between most topics.
