    I'm going to be entering a post bacc program in the fall (changing careers from finance) and wanted to try to do some review beforehand. Any suggestions for prepping for Bio I and Gen Chem I?

    I would start reviewing some basic math (i.e. algebra or precalculus) if that area is rusty. Although you don't really need any math, it will make your life a little easier in the long run. This was how I started my post bacc 4 years ago. Good luck.

    I'll need to take precalc before Gen Chem, do you think it would be beneficial to pick up an algerbra review book to brush up on some of the basic concepts and get used to doing some practice problems? Is Gen Chem primarily math stuff?

    I wouldn't say Gen chem is primarily math stuff, but they generally test concepts through quantitative problems (as opposed to more conceptual). If you feel weak in math, it would be a good idea to review. In a lot of chem problems, you're given all the values except for one variable, for which you need to find the value. This is algebra-intensive.
