Introduction to Chemistry
by T.R. Dickson (1995)
7th edition
(You can find it quite cheap used....although I also think he has a newer edition, that I have not personally seen, but it would likely be more expensive.)
I tutor high school chemisry for homeschooled students and this is my clear favorite. I think initially it was used as a non-major freshman Chem 101 (thus basically a high school chemistry course). I own Apologia for reference, and use it with students who's PARENTS want to use it, but if I am asked my preference, this is definately a preferred choice in my opinion. Perhaps it is laid out like I would lay out a chemistry course, and the right amount of depth in my opinion. It has enough exercise answers in the back to define if you are getting the concepts and skills. (I didn't find the study guide of any use, or perhaps I just wasn't sure what the teacher was supossed to do with it,...but I didn't really search it out either, since I have the students one-on-one anyway.)
