CHEM1405 - Textbooks

Chemistry 1 Laboratory Handbook

This is required by all students, except those with a practical exemption.

It will be issued free when you register at your first laboratory session in week 2 of semester. Do not lose it, as a replacement copy (available from the First Year Enquiry Office) will cost you $10.


The following is a highly recommended, but not compulsory, purchase:
Blackman, Bottle, Schmid, Mocerino and Wille,
     Chemistry, 3rd Edition, 2015 (John Wiley) ISBN: 978-0-7303-1105-8 (paperback) and 978-0-7303-2492-8 (e-text)

Textbook resources, including the answers to the odd-numbered problems and the web address for the publisher's site, are available via "Textbook Resources" on USYD eLearning.
This textbook covers the full range of first year Chemistry and will also be extremely useful in second year units.

In previous years, we have recommended purchase of both a general and an organic textbook. If you already possess these textbooks because you are repeating a unit, you probably will not need to purchase this new book.

If you are a new student, however, we strongly recommended purchasing this new book rather than secondhand editions of the old books.

During the year, recommendations may be made concerning reference books. In the main, copies of these books will be available from the Fisher Library - purchase is neither recommended nor required.
