I need help figuring out how to go about doing an extensive content review for General Chemistry. I was a ***** at this stage of my undergrad and crammed and learned minimal amounts of info. I was thinking about reading Kaplan's book and watching Chad's videos or Khan Academy? My professor has left up recordings for semester 2 topics as well, but nothing for semester 1.

I highly recommend chads videos followed by TBR chem.

Second the above. There is nothing better than TBR for general chemistry. Do all the questions and you'll be ready. If you can find some of the videos the author made, those are super helpful.

Depending on how well you want to learn the material, I'll also say do tons of practice questions too. Gen chem isn't a topic you can just memorize some definitions for- you really want to be able to apply the material and the only way to do that is by doing practice Qs.

I am flying through Chad's videos and skimming Kaplan's book and doing problems from Kaplan. I'm holding off in spending money on TBR until I don't feel satisfied with my scores if UGlobe doesn't help enough. I remember a lot of this stuff, cramming did not help those semesters. Gen Chem doesn't seem bad as I thought it was when I took it.

Have you used chad for orgo? I’m pretty weak with orgo.
No, not really, you can give it a shot. I have not heard much of Chad's orgo playlist. I was a poor student if you can even call me a student during gen chem times. By the time orgo rolled around, I did well just doing problems from 3rd Edition David Klein's textbook.
