Any sites or podcasts for very basic chemistry (for A & P)

  1. I'm taking A & P I this semester and have no Chemistry background. Chemistry is just one lecture class which we just had yesterday. It's SO foreign to me though, so I'm hoping someone might know of a good site or podcast that explains the very basics that we need for A & P. The professor that gave the lecture went through the material SO quickly, and he had an accent which made it difficult to understand him at times! HELP!!!

    There are a ton of videos on youtube about different chemistry concepts.

    Any in particular that you liked? Would rather get recommendations that weed through tons of different ones. Sorry to sound lazy but I'm working two jobs and going to school, so it would be great if someone could recommend one where the instuctor is clear and makes it interesting!

    I love iTunes University at the iTunes store. You can type in any subject and listen to lectures on what you need to know.

    The higher the goal, the harder the climb -- the sweeter the success!

    On youtube I think the guys name is Mark Rosengarten. He is kind of corny but he keeps your attention and explains things well.

    I got a great book from Amazon.com. An Introduction to CHEMISTRY for Biology Students; ninth edition. by George I. Sackheim. I had no Chem background either for API and this helped explain things.

    I have Mariebs 8th edition.We just whipped through chapter 2 as well.I haven't had chemistry in 3 years so of course I forgot all the basics.This book is pretty easy to understand though.(: It's a lot of reading though.

    No, it's just that I never took Chemistry in high school, so it's all foreign to me.
