American Chemical Society, Washington, DC.
Intended to help foreign students in their study of chemistry in the United States, this guide begins with an overview of chemical education at primary, secondary, and college levels, typical curriculum for undergraduate chemistry degrees (including calculation of honor point average), and an overview of graduate training (admissions, assistantships, and preliminary/final/oral examinations). Prequisites, lecture topics, bibliography of selected texts, grading practices, nature of examinations (including sample question types) related to undergraduate chemistry are discussed. Undergraduate and graduate programs in analytical chemistry and instrumentation, organic chemistry, inorganic chemistry, physical chemistry, and biochemistry are reviewed, focusing on such areas as prerequisites, course content, laboratory work, related courses, sample objective/subjective questions, bibliography of selected texts, grading, and additional information unique to the particular speciality.
