Special emphasis is given to certain areas to assure the student receives exposure that would not normally occur in a general chemistry course.
Special emphasis is given to organic chemistry and biological chemistry. These subjects are usually taught to students during the second and third years of four year college programs. In this way, students studying this text will receive some exposure to these important areas.
