Format:Taschenbuch|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
I love the For Dummies series and have profited from a handful of its installments. It's unpretentious and doesn't take itself too seriously while providing excellent, reliable information on a variety of topics, making the books perfect for introducing and/or refreshing. This volume in inorganic chemistry, an imposing subject, lives up to its billing as an approachable guide. The material is well organized, the writing clear, conversational. I imagine it would be very useful as a companion while taking a course in inorganic chemistry, but I found it to be just as useful as a way to explore topics in chemistry beyond the general chemistry class I had years ago.

4.0 von 5 Sternen So, an atom walks into a bar... 25. September 2013
Von J. Green - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
Back in high school I thought chemistry would be a lot more interesting than it turned out to be; all that 'periodic table of the elements' and boring stuff like that. I think the most interesting thing turned out to be the girl who sat in front of me (but it turned out there was no 'chemistry' there, either). Fast forward some twenty (or so) years and I find myself often wondering about things related to chemistry.

INorganic chemistry - in contrast to organic chemistry, which is mostly concerned with carbon - covers a lot of the field of chemistry. Yeah, there's that darn periodic table of the elements again, although now I understand better why it's set up the way it is. It also goes over things like nuclear science and radioactive decay, how elements bond together, acids and bases, and even nanotechnology. It's organized in such a way that you don't have to read it cover to cover but can jump in almost any place and, with a little effort, grasp most subjects. And I like the "Dummies" sense of humor; never taking itself too seriously but trying to have fun with it (I wish my high school chemistry class had been more like that). Especially interesting was the home experiments and household items listed at the back.

I'm not the kind of reader who wants a college-level course on the subject, but with some of the hobbies I have this seems to be enough to satisfy the curiosity I sometimes have about many things chemical. (Of course, now I might have to hunt down the one on organic chemistry.)

4.0 von 5 Sternen Almost as thick as my old textbook, but easier to understand 18. September 2013
Von Ron Cole - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
It has been a number of years since I've had anything to do with Inorganic Chemistry. The class was sort of hidden away at my college, and taught more from the whims of the soon-to-be retiring professor than directly from the textbook. So, when I got the chance to review Inorganic Chemistry for Dummies, I thought I'd take a stroll down memory lane and compare it with my old textbook. Interestingly enough, they are the same thickness if you ignore the extra bulk of the textbook's hardback cover. That doesn't necessarily tell you anything about the content, but it was a good sign for me going in.

Inorganic Chemistry for Dummies does a decent job of explaining the concepts it presents with enough information that those from varied chemistry backgrounds can understand it. I often found the explanations to initially be too simplistic, but I've had experience in the subject matter - a student that had only taken first-year chemistry may have found the same explanation just right. Other areas seemed to lack in coverage, and there were too few examples for my liking. But, comparing it to my old textbook, I actually found the Dummies book much more useful in understanding some subjects, so I can definitely recommend it - just keep in mind it won't be the only source on the material you will need.

Rating: 4 Out of 5 Stars. Worth the purchase price, especially for students planning to take the full Inorganic Chemistry course in the future.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Well done beginner book. Just what you'd expect from the "For Dummies" publisher. 5. Oktober 2013

This book is perfect for someone thrown into the world of Inorganic Chemistry. Whether you are taking it for the first time in high school or college, or if something comes up at work requiring you to quickly get some background understanding, this is a good book for you. It is easy to read, and doesn't go too in depth, but does serve as a solid starting point. For me, I used it as a refresher to bring back what I had already learned decades ago. It was very useful for that.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Just right for me 15. August 2013
Von Amelia - Veröffentlicht auf

As a lifelong learner, my needs for an inorganic chemistry text are much different from the needs of a college student. For me, this book is near perfect. It is well-organized, which is essential. But even more important, it is ACCESSIBLE, which is not true for so many college inorganic chemistry textbooks. I have not always liked the "for Dummies" books I have read. Sometimes the corny humor really puts me off and gets in the way. Sometimes the authors have not seemed to have sufficient expertise in their fields. But this Dummies book sets a great tone. And even more importantly, the authors clearly are excellent teachers who understand how murky and indecipherable the subject can be to outsiders. So they introduce the subject in an excellent first chapter, "Introducing Inorganic Chemistry." They explain that "you can start in any chapter you choose, in the chapter that interests you the most, without having to read all the chapters before it." But for me, their advice that "the chapters build on material from one chapter to the next" worked best. I read through from start to finish due to my unfamiliarity with the subject. I was well-served by their thorough definitions of terminology and processes.

Perhaps one of the most helpful explanations for the person who is trying to decide whether this book is the right one for them appears on page 2 where the authors write that they "assume that you [the reader] have very little background in chemistry, and possibly none at all; that you're new to inorganic chemistry, and maybe you have never heard of the subject before." That's an assumption it is important to know about as you consider the possible purchase of this volume. As the authors go on to explain, their reader "may be a medical student who needs to brush up in inorganic chemistry, or a high school student getting ready for a science fair, or even a freshman or junior at college." For me, a retired lawyer who hasn't taken a science class in over four decades, the authors' approach was perfect.

The bulk of the book is dedicated, as it should be, to the explication of such weighty and complex subjects as atomic structure, the periodic table, oxidation, nuclear chemistry, acids and bases, Lewis and Bronsted theories, covalent bonding, molecular symmetry and group theory, ionic and metallic bonding, coordination complexes, hydrogen, alkali and alkaline earth metals, main group elements on the periodic table (boron, carbon, nitrogen, chalcogens, halogens, and noble gases), transition metals, lanthanides and actinides, organometallics, catalysts, bioinorganic chemistry, solid-state chemistry, and nanotechnology. Chapter 20 consists of ten paragraphs that summarize ten Nobel Prize-winning ideas and the chemists who received those awards. Chapter 21 describes ten instrumental techniques used by inorganic chemists.

Chapter 22 describes 10 little "experiments" that are just plain amusing. Chapter 23 defines "Ten Inorganic Household Products" (salt, hydrogen peroxide, baking soda (sodium bicarbonate), bleach, ammonia, borax, talc, lye, stainless steel, and aluminum foil) that I use almost daily and now understand how they work much better.

To sum up, this text clearly is not for those intermediate and advanced students who have a solid grounding in the basics of the subject. Instead, it is an excellent introduction for the absolute beginner or refresher for someone who has been away from the subject for a long time. I enjoyed it immensely and now can go on to more complex, detailed texts with greater confidence and understanding.
