Maybe I am just an idiot (of which there is a good possibility) but I am not totally understanding everything. I'm sitting here looking at two problems that I don't know how to get the answer. It just isn't working!

Is there a book or website or something that can help me with these basic concepts so when it comes time for higher level Chems I won't be so freaking lost?

thanks a ton,
dxu

When I was making my way through general chemistry, I found this site quite useful:

I am a chem major. Don't blame on yourself. Chemistry can be tough sometimes. This is a silly quesion, but have you try reading your textbooks? Usually, the books do pretty good job.

i have a book called organic chemistry as a second language and it is really helpful. I didnt do very well in gen chem, but ochem so far seems a lot better (thanks to this book.) well, actually we'll see when i get my midterm back. but even if i did badly, i feel like i have a better understanding of the subject.

i struggled with gen chem also. dont feel bad if you feel lost, chem is like another language. it will take some time but keep plugging away. orgo 1 and 2 is nothing like gen chem so dont worry about those yet. hope all works out, good luck!:D

I feel your pain!:eek: I HATED gen chem. I am finally in orgo 2 now, and that is much better. I don't have any suggestions other than to study as much as you can and try really hard. I am sure you will be able to suffer through it. Does your school offer tutoring? Does your professor have office hours? You may want to try one of those options if they are available. :luck: :luck:
