I am taking Chemistry in the fall and am extremely frightened. I am very unintelligent, lazy, and have not taken many challenging courses in my undergraduate career. Can anyone give me advice on how to do well on Chemistry? I already have the textbooks and class will begin in 113 days. The textbook has 23 chapters. How many chapters do you think will be covered in the first semester sequence? Should I focus on one chapter a week? What are the best self-help books on Chemistry? Is Schuam's Outline of College Chemistry a good source to help me teach myself? What goes on in the lab? Are there any resources that could help me become accustomed to what goes on in the lab? Ultimately, how should I spend this summer preparing for Chemistry (considering that I have the textbooks)? Any input on how to do well will be appreciated. Thank you.
