    The book assigned to you by the university is all you will need. A second book will merely go unread. Trust me on that.

    GENERAL CHEMISTRY [Author:Petrucci Edition:9th ]

    That's the book I have for my Freshman chem class, seems complete and infromative... from the moments I opened the book it seemed to be a good book. I've also only opened it about 5 times so not sure how credible I might be... Good luck.

    Why are you looking for another book? Any specific things you are looking to learn?

    When I was going to college for Chem, I wasn't given this information until Orgo 3, but i found it very helpful:

    Read each chapter three times.
    Skim, looking mainly at figures, diagrams, equations and reactions
    Then the second time, really read the chapter thoroughly (before class, if possible)
    The third time, read the chapter as a refresher to solidify the information you have already absorbed.

    Good luck! If you have any questions, please feel free to ask!
