ISBN (Digital): 

Introductory Chemistry is a survey of basic chemistry intended for a one-semester introductory or preparatory chemistry course. Ball begins with a general introduction to the subject before diving into some of the more technical topics. Introductory Chemistry also introduces mathematical problems, either as conversion-factor problems or as formula problems, allowing the text to focus on the logic of the approach and not the tricks or shortcuts.
