The exceptional quality of previous editions has been built upon to make the tenth edition of Atkins' Physical Chemistry even more closely suited to the needs of both students and lecturers. The text has been enhanced with additional learning features and maths support, and has been radically restructured into short focussed topics. An innovative use of pedagogy is combined with rigorous but accessible coverage of the subject to ensure Atkins' Physical Chemistry tenth edition remains the textbook of choice for studying physical chemistry. New to this edition : significant reorganization of the material within each chapter into discrete 'topics' makes the text more readable for students and more flexible for instructors ; expanded maths support includes new 'Chemist's toolkits' which provide students with succinct reminders of mathematical concepts and techniques ; three questions at the beginning of each topic engage and focus the attention of the reader : 'Why do you need to know this material ?', 'What is the key idea ?', and 'What do you need to know already ?' ; New checklists of key concepts at the end of each topic reinforce the main take-home messages in each section.
