Hi everyone I am taking General Chemistry 2 (chem 102), and I want to get in a lot of practice before my first test. My teacher doesn't lecture (literally. she just makes us get into groups and do things relating to the chapter we're on) so I rely on myself reading the chapter and learning the material on my own (big switch from last semester). This material is kind of tough for me. Chem isn't my strongest subject but I really want to good like last semester. Any suggestions? I always do a bunch of practice problems from my book, my homework, and online. Does anyone have any suggestions on practice books to buy that would help me with this chem class? I'm willing to try anything honestly because it's extremely tough learning chem on your own.

So yea if you have any suggestions, either for what practice books to try or advice for the class please let me know!

Thanks!!

P.S, the topics that will be on the test are liquids/solutions, chem kinetics, chem equilibrium, and acid/base equilibria. Also, I have been using khan academy and have tried Schaum's chemistry.

If you do all the problems in the book you'll be fine.

If you can do ALL of the book problems, you are probably ok.

_____________________________________________________

But if you really want more practice with solutions-Try googling stuff like (copy and paste the individual lines in to google):

"chemistry" AND "liquids" AND "solutions" AND "worksheet" site:*.edu
"chem" AND "liquids" AND "solutions" AND "worksheet" site:*.edu


"chem" AND "chemical equilibrium" AND "solutions" AND "worksheet" site:*.edu

"chem" AND "chemical kinetics" AND "solutions" AND "worksheet" site:*.edu

"chem" AND "acid" and "base" and "equilibria" AND "solutions" AND "worksheet" site:*.edu

PS: In my searches, the websites that came up the most were with urls with the extensions

alpha.chem.umb.edu/chemistry/

and

csus-dspace.calstate.edu/.

Your teacher has you do groupwork in gen chem class? What in the actual ****?

Do what MedPR says, practice problems from your book. If that's not enough, pick up an MCAT gen chem review book for more problems. You can use it again in a year or two for MCAT review.

I learned gen chem, physics, and orgo just by doing lots of problems. Then checking what I messed up on. Fix the mistakes. Then do more problems.

chem groupwork :uhno: lol your teacher is just a lazyass
