Packaged with the textbook, this printed access card gives students access to OWL Quick Prep at cengagebrain.com. Quick Prep is a self-paced online short course that helps students succeed in general chemistry. Students who completed Quick Prep through an organized class or self-study averaged almost a full letter grade higher in their subsequent general chemistry course than those who did not. Intended to be taken prior to the start of the semester, Quick Prep is appropriate for both underprepared students and for students who seek a review of basic skills and concepts. Quick Prep features an assessment quiz to focus students on the concepts they need to study to be prepared for general chemistry. Quick Prep is approximately 20 hours of instruction delivered through OWL with no textbook required and can be completed at any time in the student's schedule. To view an OWL Quick Prep demonstration and for more information, visit www.cengage.com/chemistry/quickprep.

Roberta O. Day received a B.S. in Chemistry from the University of Rochester, Rochester, NY in 1962, spent 5 years in the research laboratories of the Eastman Kodak Company, Rochester, NY, and then received a Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1971. After postdoctoral work sponsored by both the Damon Runyon Memorial Fund and the National Institutes of Health, she joined the faculty of the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, where she is now a Professor Emeritus in the Department of Chemistry. She initiated the use of on-line electronic homework in general chemistry at UMass, is one of the inventors of the OWL system, has been either PI or Co-I for several major national grants for the development of OWL, and has authored a large percentage of the questions in the OWL data base for General Chemistry. She won the American Chemical Society Connecticut Valley Section Award for outstanding contributions to chemistry in 1990, and the College of Natural Science and Mathematics Outstanding Teacher Award in 1997. Her research in chemistry as an X-ray crystallographer has resulted in the publication of over 180 articles in professional journals.
