Essentials of General, Organic and Biochemistry, 1st Edition is part of the WebAssign Premium series from W. H. Freeman.

WebAssign Premium includes a large selection of online homework problems, interactive tutorials and resources, and a complete eBook at one low price.

Integrated into WebAssign Premium are a number of dynamic student resources developed specifically for this text. Every problem includes a link to the appropriate section of a complete interactive eBook, (also available through a dynamic table of contents from their WebAssign homepage), allowing students to highlight and take notes as they read. Other premium resources include:

  • INTERACTIVE TUTORIALS reinforce the concepts presented in the classroom, providing students with selfpaced explanation and practice
  • CHEMCASTS replicate the face-to-face experience of watching an instructor work a problem. Using a virtual whiteboard, the ChemCast tutors show students the steps involved in solving key worked examples, while explaining the concepts along the way. ChemCasts can be viewed online or downloaded to a portable media device, such as an iPod.
  • VIRTUAL MODEL KITallows students to build molecular structures on the computer screen. After constructing the models, students are presented with automatically graded questions to probe their experience.

Questions Available within WebAssign

Most questions from this textbook are available in WebAssign. The online questions are identical to the textbook questions except for minor wording changes necessary for Web use. Whenever possible, variables, numbers, or words have been randomized so that each student receives a unique version of the question. This list is updated nightly.
