    Chemistry is EASY! How do you Balance Chemical Equations?

    Chemistry is EASY! Electron Configurations, Balancing Equations, Mole Chemistry, Bohr Diagrams.


    The book I used:
    Chemistry for Dummies.

    Good luck with it, and I am sure you will do fine!

    I took chemistry last semester and managed an A. I work almost full time, have 3 small kids and was taking two other classes. It wasn't too hard for me but maybe I'm just lucky lol. I also had a really forgiving teacher who liked to give us partial credit for getting answers at least partially correct. My suggestion is to read the chapters, go to lecture, take notes and work with a tutor or study group if you feel the need. Good luck!

    This textbook:

    "Chemistry: An introduction to General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry 11th Edition" (It has a flamingo on the front cover)

    This is the textbook that got me an A in Chemistry. It has great step-by-step examples and practice problems in each chapter. It literally tells you how to do each problem in great detail. Although this book is a bit expensive, it is worth getting. It was the required textbook for my Chem class but even if it isn't your required text I'd still recommend it. You can always rent it or sell it back on amazon when you're done with it.

    That's the book that was used for my Chem class and it was very useful and easy to understand!
