Recommended literature for general chemistry courses:

To ease your studies we will provide you scripts as a comprimed summary of the relevant topics. Of course these do not substitute the physical attendance in the lectures. To get more detailed information about special aspects there are many useful books, which also mostly contain lots of examples to train your skills in chemical calculations. To practise this is highly recommended. Most of the presented books are available in the main library and can be borrowed free of charge.
