Free download Chemistry For Dummies written by John T. Moore in PDF.

As per a review, “There are three evident parts in this review book. The first being the overall general chemistry knowledge being like what is energy or what the scientific method is. 

The second really gets down to the actual chemistry that we had to learn in class such as stoichiometry, periodic trends, and acid/ bases. The third section introduced how all of the information connects to the real world as in like nuclear fission or fusion, how pollution affects the air, and what is acid rain.

The first section is like before, very basic in information and is generally for those that have little or no knowledge of chemistry. The sections are set up nicely to help the newly acquainted chemistry student to jump right in. 

The second section involves the real grit of the class and gives many examples and diagrams to explain what is being said throughout this section. The third section is really for those that find themselves in the interest of any real-world applications or just are interested in finding out what all the stuff they just read and learned really mean to the industry.

I would rate this book as a 4.0 out of 5 for the normal chemistry student. I would rate this book as a 3.0 out of 5 for the AP chemistry student.

The reason for the 4.0 out of 5 for the regular chemistry student is that this is almost all of the information needed to complete the class and do well. However, the informal format of the book could make it a bit difficult to read and understand. 

The informalities may be confusing if the students are using a regular textbook for the class. The reason for the 3.0 out of 5 for the AP chemistry student is mainly due to the overall good amount of material and many different methods to solving problems, however, again the informal format might not be the best as well as focuses more on the people behind these theories and different diagrams. 

As seen from many AP Chemistry tests the people behind these theories and diagrams are not mentioned frequently enough to need a page for each person. The content that those scientists completed, however, is still very relevant to learn and understand. 

Something that I would recommend to change would be to make more of the book content covered in the class and not 1/3 of the book be about the real-world applications.

Overall, I would recommend this book to any student looking for some help in a chemistry course and is looking to learn more about real-world applications to the science. You may want to get help from a teacher first since they are the best and usually free information.”

About the author:

John Moore grew up in the foothills of Western North Carolina. He attended the University of North Carolina -Asheville where he received his bachelor's degree in chemistry. He earned his Master's degree in chemistry from Furman University in Greenville, South Carolina. 

After a stint in the United States Army he decided to try his hand at teaching. In 1971, he joined the chemistry faculty of Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, Texas where he still teaches chemistry. In 1985 he started back to school part time and in 1991 received his Doctorate in Education from Texas A&M University.
