Zumdahl text users

  1. Oct 25, 2005 #1
    Main Question: How many people are taking a course using a zumdahl text? I ask this because i would like to add a few people as buddies if they dont mind, and will help them with the class as i go through it, to help keep my memory fresh.

    "General science" classes at my school use this text, but I'm not in that class right now.

    I'm at U of I so of course we use it (Zumdahl was the Gen Chem prof. here before he retired and moved to a warmer climate). One chem prof said he hates Zumdahl b/c he's gotten so rich writing a basically plagiarised book while he is doing research and gettin nothing, heh.
