Words of Advice for Studying Chemistry
Chemistry is all about practice practice and more practice
As you can see from the syllabus we have to cover 8 chapters in 15 weeks. We will all have to work hard to keep up with the concepts and practice of problems.
My advice for your mental sanity is:
Most common techniques for studying Chemistry
If you like practicing on the computer then see me for the software. (Keep in mind that this is the not the best way to learn to write out mechanisms, but this is still good for practice)
Learning the course material is your responsibility, I am there to help you understand concepts and how to apply them. Your learning is in your hands, the more time you spend on it the better your understanding will be and the consequently you will earn a better grade. My job is not to give you answers to all your questions but to guide you to the answer.
For a full load of 12 credit hours you should be spending 36-48 hours studying on your time. For every science class of 3 credit hours you need to spend four times the credit hours (12 hours) practicing and studying. If you are not committed to put the time and effort required for a class then you should also be expected to earn a lower grade in class.
The above is only my advice. If you think you have a better way of studying by all means follow it.
