This is intended to be a combined textbook and laboratory manual for the chemistry, inorganic, organic and physiologic, taught in nurses' training courses and in some home economic courses. It is strictly up to date and well written. In a textbook designed for courses in which the amount of time for the study of chemistry is very limited, much of the value of the text depends on the wisdom of the author in choosing what subjects to include and what to leave out. Quite naturally, the treatment of the inorganic part of the text is the largest because in this part the introductory subjects, which include chemical laws, solutions, equations, units of measure and the like, are treated. However, this part of the text is not complete enough for an ordinary freshman course in chemistry. The organic and physiologic portion of the text are combined. The portion dealing with pure
