Hey guys,
I would like your suggestions for the Chemistry I and II Berkeley Review?

I got one on craigslist for 14 dollars. However, it is the old one (1995).

Does anyone know, if the topics are the same? Should I just spend 75 dollars and buy the new edition.
Any help would be most appreciated..

Thanks

What are the topics? I'll compare with you...

But yes, they are DEFINITELY helpful. Chapters are very well written, questions will show you how LITTLE you know, and the explanations help you learn from your mistakes!

If you can get the new ones for $75, that's still a steal compared to the manuf.'s price nearing $100.

Yeah, that's too old. There was a major revision in 2004.

1995 is WAY too old (well before my time). You should find books that are at least after 2004 if you get them used. And with used books, it is far more important to get them clean (without any circling of answers, because that can bias your decision when working through problems) than to worry about differences between 2004 and a later printing.
