The emphasis this semester is using the skills you learned last semester to solve more complex problems. Trust what you learned and what you will learn. Use that knowledge to solve the new "puzzles" that are presented as problems. Hence, the very best way to study is to WORK PROBLEMS! WORK PROBLEMS! WORK PROBLEMS! WORK PROBLEMS! WORK PROBLEMS! WORK PROBLEMS!
Strive to UNDERSTAND YOUR NOTES from CLASS. Do not simply try to get by with memorization. It does not work.
Test anxiety? Time management issues? Check out these workshops at the ALEC. Don't wait until later. Do it now! These workshops can really help build your confidence.
General Course Information (also found on links below)
Chem 1304 Virtual Office hours: Discussion Board. Ask your questions here. Indeed you may find someone else has already asked the same question and the answer is already waiting for you. Make sure you post your questions under the proper exam so it's easier to locate information. There is also a search feature so you can look for a specific problem by it's number, e.g., 12.8.
Lecture outlines with selected figures from the book are located on Canvas. Be sure to print the outlines and bring them to class. They are not a complete set of notes and other topics not on the outline will frequently be covered, so be prepared to take extensive notes.
This includes Exam dates and approximate timing of chapter coverage.
