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".

    love, Marggie:heartbeat

    hope these help, they have done wonders for me. I really want my GPA to stay up and with taking algebra, A & PI, chemistry and life span development this fall along with my CNA classes I need all of the help i can get

    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
