egads what a nightmare! I never thought a subject could be so hard. does anyone have a good handle on it? How about tricks to remember charges,ions, we are starting to balance equations... I keep saying I can do this....oh my oh my,oh me oh my...see now I am starting to babble:chuckle
once again all I have to say is
Do you have a chem/math tutoring lab at your school, if you do go there, if not find a local college that has one, find out their times and go see a tutor to explain what you don't understand.
The tutors there who are chem instructors can explain something much better than your orig. instructor. I found this to be true. I usually visited right before an exam to make sure that I understood something that was not clear in class. Don't feel bad about going to another person to explain it to you, as it's probably the difference in teaching styles. Also you may want to try the "Incredibly Easy" books for chemistry. Find someone in your class that understands chemistry, meet before class or after and go over things together.
Good luck and I hope this helps.

Chemistry is a hard class!!! I took it last semester. My instructor was very helpfull. She was always there to answer questions. I started the semester with a tutor but really did not need one. I stuck with it because the more time spent studying the better and I spent the sessions helping others. I passed Chemistry with an A which I never expected but I actually enjoyed it. I know you think I am crazy. ( mabey a little bit) Well this semester I am the only Chemistry tutor at our college. I would be glad to help if I can.

Thanks everyone. I am sorry I haven't answered. I really don't have alot of time right now. I just started a new job and with the two classes I take I was just finding things a little tough. I have figured out my Chemistry to this point. I need to study now as I have a big exam next week.
Thanks you all!
