Not completely down to basics .. more for year 9 and above. Great reference.



Great book for studying!!


This book really helped me with understanding and learning new things about chemistry. It's layout helped to find everything that I needed easily but my personal opinion is to read it from start to end, to learn everything you need to know and how everything works together instead of reading it in patches and not getting the full use of this great book.
