Summary "This innovative and unique workbook and "map" guides physical chemistry students through the decisions to be made to assess a problem situation, create appropriate solutions, and gain confidence through practice solving physical chemistry problems. The workbook includes six major sections with 20 - 30 solved problems in each section that span from easy, single objective questions to difficult, multistep analysis problems. Each section of the workbook has "key points" that highlight major features of the topic to remind students of what they need to apply to solve problems in the topic area. Consequently, the workbook and map can act as a "test" review for the students"-- Provided by publisher

Notes Kathleen Murphygrew up near Saginaw Michigan and obtained a B.S. degree in Chemistry from Central Michigan University (Mount Pleasant, MI).She then went on to receive a PhD in Physical Chemistry from the University of Vermont (Burlington, VT) and did postdoctoral work at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (Troy, NY).Dr. Murphy iscurrently a Professor of Chemistry, in the Natural Science Department at Daemen College (Amherst, NY) and has been teaching general, analytical and physical chemistry for over 40 years. Eighteen of those years were spent being in an administrative role within the department and the College and oversaw the transition of the College into health-related areas and major expansion of the department. Dr. Murphy never left the classroom though and looks forward to devoting much more of her time using her experience to develop new strategies for students to address their weaknesses in problem-solving and surmounting them. Her research interests have been the role of oxygen in wound healing and various environmental topics, such as bioremediation or detection of metals in the soil or water
