I'm going to be taking a required course called Chemistry for Health Science and I want to do everything I can to prepare for it before I go in, as I've heard it's a tough class. Can anyone tell me how it's different from a regular Chemistry class one would have taken in high school?
I am currently studying for the NLN pre-entrance exam I'll need to get into my Nursing program, and it reviews the very basic elements of understanding Chemistry, but I've noticed in general that there's a lot of algebra involved in more advanced Chemistry courses. Is the Chemistry for Health Science class something that will require all of that algebra? I'm trying to gauge it in advance so I can study up enough algebra, which I'm terrible at.
I've seen two review books to help me get back into understanding Chemistry, one is a basic Cliff's Notes Chemistry study aid, and the other is called "Organic Chemistry." Which would be the better one for me to check into before going into the Chemistry for Health Science class so I can get a jump on it before I become overwhelmed?
I'd really appreciate any help I can get. I want to try and review as best I can before jumping into the classes so I can be the best student - and eventual nurse - I can be!
Thanks so much!!!
