**It's best to visit us on the web at General Chemistry Lecture Notes


General Chemistry Lecture Notes -- for a typical eighteenth chapter ("section") of a high school chemistry course (AP, honors, regular) -or- college-level general chemistry course.

Excellent for instructors who like to write out their lecture notes on the board "as they teach"...
