This textbook is for the standard undergraduate course in physical chemistry.

The issue with the book is that Levine may get into absolutely every detail of a concept he lacks examples that can translate to the actual work expected on homework and tests.

The issue with the book is that Levine may get into absolutely every detail of a concept he lacks examples that can translate to the actual work expected on homework and tests. The book is far too wordy, you will lose the forest through the trees in almost every section, especially the later chapters.

I wouldn't recommend this book over Physical Chemistry: A Molecular Approach by McQuarrie, but having both is a great idea. I wouldn't recommend this book over Physical Chemistry: A Molecular Approach by McQuarrie, but having both is a great idea.

At the same time, the treatment is made easy to follow by giving full step-by-step derivations, clear explanations and by avoiding advanced mathematics unfamiliar to students. A mix of theoretical and practical applications is presented.

This fifth edition gives students an in-depth fundamental treatment of physical chemistry which is made easy to follow by providing full step-by-step derivations, clear explanations and by avoiding advanced mathematics unfamiliar to students. Necessary maths and physics have thorough review sections, and all worked examples are now followed by a practice exercise. The material on quantum mechanics has been substantially revised. The book is organized so that students can see the broad structure and logic of physical chemistry rather than a mixture of formulas and ideas presented randomly, and a fair number of biological applications are included.

This book was written for Physical Chemists by Physical Chemists. I can see the appeal to some (including me), but it can be very hard to understand because it's so formal. However, I appreciate the specificity of the notation.

Thank you

P.Chem is a pain no matter how you slice it. This book made it less painful.

Excellent product. Received book before estimated date of arrival.

I think the general consensus on undergraduate-level physical chemistry books is that a great one does not exist. I agree. Compared to all textbooks written for every subject I've ever taken, this book is horrible. However, when rated next to every P-Chem book I've ever tried to read, this one is actually the best. That having been said, I still can't find it within myself to rate it with 5 stars. And that's from someone who actually enjoyed most of physical chemistry. I think most of my classmates still shudder in horror whenever they walk by the old classroom... but at least they're not screaming in terror, so maybe that can be attributed to the textbook not sucking quite as bad as others. :)

thanks
It does its job which is to make me less incompetent.
