It is the time of year when the bookstore is hounding me for my past-due textbook selection for the fall! It has been several years since I've taught our inorganic course at the junior/senior level with pre- and post-P-Chem students. The last few times I've used various editions of Housecroft and Sharpe, and I'm considering that again. I'd also be interested in what peope think of the new Miessler, Tarr, and Fischer. Since I am still waiting on Housecroft and Sharpe new edition--anything you can tell me about the new versions of each of these books relative to the older versions would be much appreicated!
