you as it shows how all the problems at the end of the
chapters are solved. I believe he has placed the guide on
2 hour reserve. It will probably not be avaialble for a
week or so, so give it some time. If you check the
ProblemSet link I have listed recommended problems you
should do at the end of each chapter in Zumdahl. If you
have difficulties working these problems the Zumdahl's
Complete Solutions Guide should help.
