I need to take chemistry as a pre-req to SUNY downstate. I am not good in math and am terrified of chemistry. There is no specification in the "type" of chemistry needed. Which kind of chemistry course would you say is by far the easiest kind of chemistry? Intro, Basic, General or are those all the same things?
Be very careful. Some of my fellow students thought that also and did the "intro" only to find that they needed to do another course afterwards. If it is a pre-requisite I guarantee they have a set idea about what kind of class you need to do.
I don't know your school. Are you doing a BSN? My college required a 4 credit general chemistry course for the BSN. If you are doing an ADN make sure you are strategic. Perhaps you will want to do a BSN later? You get my drift. Why not make an appointment with the your college's nursing advisor? They are really best placed to advise you.
As for the fear of the chemistry and math? I feel ya! Get some practice with math from math.com (also something called purplemath.com if you need in depth explanations). Start now and do 15 minutes a day or something like that. Work your way up to and through scientific notation, ratios/proportions & percentages, units & conversions, simple statistics.
Also, I find it best to study my least favorite subject FIRST. That way I am more alert and receptive to the new info. Then I go on to the stuff I really like. This changed me from a barely C student in math and chemistry into an A student in them (I swear).
By the way, when I finish my last chemistry class I practically had a party!
