Chem this fall. Any tips? :)

  1. 0
    Hi guys. I talked to an adviser and she strongly recommended that I take chem before AP, so I am just going to listen to her after much, much wrestling. I already found what professor I want. She seems like a tough but good professor.
    I am a bit worried because I am terrified of chemistry. Does any on have tips or good books they used on the side to study? I saw Chemistry Demystified and it seemed alright. Of course I don't know for sure since it's Chinese to me, lol. I am going to take it with either Human growth and development or critical thinking. Or both. Whatever. So yeah, any tips would be greaaaat. Oh btw the chem I am taking is "CHM 1033 Chemistry for allied health sciences".

    it's kinda like math where you need to practice answering the questions, rather than just reading the text.....good luck, you'll do great!

    I took chemistry 7 years ago when I originally started going for nursing. At my school they require it before starting A&P. I honestly don't remember much, so I'm of no help....just want to say good luck!!

    Chem for health sciences- review the following which will be covered in the beginning and throughout:

    Dimensional analysis- how to set up problems
    Metric System- US system of measurements - Conversions
    Atoms, Protons, Neutrons, Electrons
    Periodic "Table
    calorie/joule- how to solve for kcals or grams for fat, protein/carb
    Ionization
    balancing atom equations
    half lives

    It is not hard but you have to practice doing problems-

    Good luck
