I cannot believe how badly this book has been written.
The use of units is almost non-existent in the later chapters -
There is zero introduction to the electronic structure -Introduction to some concepts is almost non-existent -
The use of language is emotive and very annoying -
Almost any other Physics book is better - fortunately my school has discontinued this as a recommended text - thank goodness.

The study guide contains information not included in the book, and the book contains material not in the study guide - who would have thought.
