The approach is pedagogically pleasing, as it builds up physical chemistry from considerations of atoms to systems containing numerous molecules. McQuarrie and Simon set high standards and many of us, as teachers and professionals in physical chemistry, will find inspiration in, and have our aspirations raised by, this text.
Your book, however, I found to be truly outstanding. It is both a thorough and exceptionally clear presentation of physical chemistry concepts.
I have friends in the physics department who survived their very rigorous quantum courses by relying on your book because they couldn't understand the one used in the physics class.
Throughout my entire undergraduate study, both thermodynamic and reaction kinetics were conducted in a very classical manner. Whereas most of the advanced courses, thermo. Your book has served as a very good platform to link up my previous experiences with my current study. By beginning with quantum chemistry, students will learn the fundamental principles upon which all modern physical chemistry is built.
The text includes a special set of "MathChapters" to review and summarize the mathematical tools required to master the material Thermodynamics is simultaneously taught from a bulk and microscopic viewpoint that enables the student to understand how bulk properties of materials are related to the properties of individual constituent molecules.
This new text includes a variety of modern research topics in physical chemistry as well as hundreds of worked problems and examples. McQuarrie, Jo Editorial Re? Jiujitsu Dave 17 reviewers made a similar statement A new text in physical chemistry was very much needed, and the Mc uarrie! He is now at UC Davis. His clarity and skills of being a classroom teacher was awesome.
Industry does that to one. Now that my interests coincide with relearning the subject, I was turned off by the textbooks that I had. In searching for a text, I noticed McQuarrie had written one. I decided that it was definately worth checking out. Upon reading it - it became obvious that all those years of teaching the subject had paid off.
The clarity in approaching the subject was set to print! What is great about his text is: 1 Totally self contained. The math needed for a particular subject is put into interleafing chapters on a "just in time basis.
On the otherhand, for folks that need a refresher like myself or had limited exposure to the subject - It is right there, right now, no hunting around needed. If you have the misfortune of having a class where the Professor has chosen another text this would be THE supplemenatry text though at [price] new there would be an 'ouch' factor.
If you look at almost any other text on Physical Chemistry Barrow or Atkins or Read more 1 Comment Was this review helpful to you? That's a very nice physical chemistry book, the text are clear and the explanations are well worked with examples and exercises.
Yau Format: Hardcover One of the most emerging fear of P-Chem students is the rigid dificulty and obscureness of the mathematical background. Many textbooks have unfortunately overseen the importance of treating the mathematics and establishing link between the mathematics and the physical interpretation of chemical phenomenon.
McQuarrie's text addresses and amends this problem in a brilliant. Difficult mathematical concepts are integrated along with the appropriate topics and are presented in a concise fashion. The first half of the text discusses topics in quantum chemistry while the rest deals with thermodynamics, statistical mechanics,and kinetics. All the equations are backed by clear explanation and mathematical derivation. When I took quantum chemistry the first course of the P-Chem sequence , we used McQuarrie and it worked just fine in explaining all the topics covered in lecture.
Unfortunately professor from the second semester thermodynamics decided to abandon McQuarrie and used instead Atkins' Physical Chemistry, which is absolutely not worth the money and very confusing and difficult to follow.
I kept the McQuarrie book and used that as study aids and reference, whereas I trashed Atkins as soon as the semester was over well, I immediately sold it back. McQuarrie is the only P-Chem book you'll find useful and clear. Comment Was this review helpful to you? Good math This is quite intuitive, very efficient, very lucid writing that makes for relatively easy, very interesting reading.

This book was not very clear to me.
