TL:DR conditions below
- Highschool to first year undergraduate level
- Theory based(Experimentation not wanted)
- General - Giving a good introduction to all or most areas of Chemistry
- Rigorous - Professional formatting - Not a casual textbook
I am looking for a textbook for someone(me) who has done no chemistry, but isn't too basic as it progresses. What are some of the better textbooks for starting to learn chemistry? I don't know any specific fields, so I would like to get some exposure to a number of different topics. I am a third year Mathematics student, so I am not worried about it being too concise, I am willing to reread areas one hundred times if need be.
One note: I am not interested in doing experimentation at all, and would just like to learn theory, as I have (sometimes) embarrassingly bad knowledge of the field as I didn't take chemistry in highschool(which I greatly regret).
Highschool through to the end of first year undergraduate level preferably, or alternatively multiple textbooks by the same author of successive difficulty.
