Organic and Biochemistry for Today
Distinguished by its superior allied health focus and integration of technology, Seager and Slabaugh’s ORGANIC AND BIOCHEMISTRY FOR TODAY, Seventh Edition continues to meet students’ needs through diverse applications, examples, boxes, and outstanding technology tools and now offers an updated and improved art program. Prompts throughout the new edition lead students to OWL (web-based learning system) two unique online programs that extend the lessons of the text and help students study smarter. In addition to the many resources found in CengageNOW and OWL, the book and website contain questions modeled after the Nursing School and Allied Health Entrance Exams. ORGANIC AND BIOCHEMISTRY FOR TODAY dispels students’ inherent fear of chemistry and instills an appreciation for the role chemistry plays in our daily lives through a rich pedagogical structure and an accessible writing style with lucid explanations. In addition, the book provides greater support in both problem-solving and critical-thinking skills the skills necessary for student success. By demonstrating the importance of chemistry concepts to students’ future careers and by providing important career information online, the authors not only help students set goals but also help them focus on achieving them. This textbook is identical to the longer book by this author called General, Organic, and Biochemistry with these exceptions: it contains fewer chapters and those chapters are numbered differently than they are in the longer book. OWL does not have a separate course (with the eBook or without eBook) for the shorter book, so links on this page to purchase access will take you to the longer book.
