Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
Written by Ira Levine, the Student Solutions Manual contains the worked-out solutions to all of the problems in the text. The purpose of the manual is help the student learn physical chemistry and as an incentive to work problems, not as a way to avoid working problems.
Biografía del autor
Ira N. Levine received his Ph.D. in General Chemistry from Harvard University in 1963. He specializes in both physical and quantum chemistry. Currently, he is a professor at the City University of New York, Brooklyn College.

The 4th edition ('96) was a very good text which I could make my way through with only moderate difficulty. The 5th edition was not as well written and more confusing leading me to quit after about 8 chapters. The 6th or present edition got me to quit after 3 chapters. It is possible that I am getting less capable in physical chemistry with age but I think that Dr. Levine is getting more complicated with each edition. Many of the mathematical proofs offered exclusively in the 6th edition just shouldn't be there. They are overcomplicating the discussion and it would be better for students to just accept the conclusions without going through the mathematical rigor (leading to mental rigor mortis).
In quantum mechanics, I have learned to accept the conclusions and not even desire to see the rigorous derivations of the final equations. I learned not to ask after I saw a few of these in texts. Somethings are best left unsaid and unread, if you know what I mean.
My opinion is that Dr. Levine should have quit at the 4th edition because after that he is understanding the mathematical sources of physical chemistry better but is not able to explain them at our level down here anymore. He assumes that we are a lot more p.chem/math saavy then we are and we are getting lost in his derivations and explanations.
I gave the 4th edition 5 stars; I give this one 2-3 stars. I wonder, is this the same Ira Levine that left Rutgers grad school in the late 60's? There was an Ira Levine that I knew at Rutgers in grad school but he went someplace else.
