Other Textbook Companion Web Sites

Hill and Kolb, 9th Ed.
Finally, the web site for your textbook is up.
Corwin's "Introductory Chemistry" 3rd. Ed.
This is a "preparatory" course as a slow introduction for students wanting to continue in chemistry. Much of the material should be on the level you could understand. Pick a chapter that you are interested in learning more about, and from there you have access to some practice quizzes and web links.
Brown, Lemay and Bursten, "General Chemistry", 7th Ed.
This is a much more advanced book, the one we previously used in our regular course. Still there may be some value in reading another explanation of some points, and there is a more extensive collection of on-line quizzes (though more advanced) and web resources. This is only for the more adventuresome among you.
Hill, Baum and Scott-Ennis, "Chemistry of Life", 6th Ed.
This text covers introductory general chemistry, some organic chemistry, and biochemistry all in one text. The introductory chapters are probably more on your level than the Brown, Lemay and Bursten text.
