Summer Chemistry!!

  1. 0 I'm scared to death to take a 4 week course in principles of chemistry during the summer!! It's everyday, but I did take Micro last summer and ended up doing well. I think they cut a lot of material out during the summer. Any suggestions on if I should attempt it or wait until fall??!

    It would be such a relief to get this class behind me. I only work PT so I can put in the hours to study... However, I know math is involved and I'm not a math person at all!!


    Help, please!!

    I'm doing a 4 week biology session along with literature and another class & having the same dilemma. Class starts Monday & I still haven't decided on whether I want to drop the classes or not. Ugh! So frustrating I don't know what to do. But I think I'm just going to do it, in the first couple of days if it seems like too much I will drop the classes in the drop/add period and take them this fall. Good Luck!

    I know it is very frustrating!! I think you can do it though if you stay dedicated! Yes, that's a really good idea. I'll probably do the same if I feel it is too much... The feeling of getting them knocked out before fall would be awesome though!!

    At my university, they do not leave out any material despite being a shorter class. So I wouldn't bank on them doing that. But good luck.

    I took my Chemistry course in the summer and it was 5 weeks. It covered general, organic and biochem. We started out as a class of 30, and in the end there was 18 of us left. We had classes everyday, and labs twice a week. My entire group always stayed on campus for several hours afterwards to study/do homework together. On some days,we were on campus for 14 hours! Chemistry has always been my weakness so I kept putting it off until I realized I had no other choice than to take it NOW. To be honest, I loved that it was fast paced as it allowed me to retain more information. My professor was the best professor ever and clarified everything for all of us. This is the first time where I will say that I probably would not have made it if I didn't have a study group.

    I am taking it this summer June 3-July 29. My BSN program does not offer it in the summer (but I need it) so am taking it in the city a hour away. The lecture is online & the lab is 2 times/week for 2.5 hours each. I dislike chemistry, but it is an allied health chemistry. It is recommended for people who have no chem experience, but I took it in high school & also general chemistry last year at my college. So hopefully I can get my B & move on. Good luck everyone!

    I'm taking Inorganic Chem II this summer (8 weeks). If this is your first Chem course and it's only 4 weeks, you should be VERY strong in math to attempt. Lots of equations to memorize! Good luck to you! You're going to eat, breathe & sleep Chem for the next 4 weeks

    I believe in you! Especially with the hours you have to study. Since it's summer, just remember to prioritize and remind yourself that what you're doing today is building a foundation for your future. Stay dedicated and focused, study study study, and think about how thankful Future You will be when you 4.0 your class and get into nursing school
