What should I do???? Chemistry is the most difficult subject for me. I have tons of books and study aids but I always seem to miss some fine detail. I also have 1001 questions in gen. chem and organic chem. Anyway for those of you that find chem easy..how do you do it? :scared: I am very nervous about the DAT and especially the chem sections. Everyone says that gen chem is just like algebra in a way (which algebra is easy for me) but I still don't get it. I have reviewed the Kaplan blue book two times and still keep doing poorly on the practice tests. I guess I just don't have confidence in my ability for chem. So if you were in this situation what would you do? Obviously study like crazy but any other suggestions or tips that helped you succeed in this subject? HELP!!

Tooth girl,
just calm down! You will do ok on the real test. Kaplan Chem/Orgo is much harder than the real test. Just practice Chem/Orgo practice test over and over again

the key is to keep on taking practice exams and working through problems. But make sure to review question that you miss - focus on the concept of the problem.

Practice makes perfect. I usually work it over and over and once more just to make sure.
