HI there!

I am a Freshmen starting my first year of pre-reqs for nursing, and I am struggling! We have taken the first exam which I got a 74.5% on and the average was lower than that, but I am still not happy with the grade.

If there are any study tips any of you would recommend I would highly appreciate it! For the last exam I used Quizlet to learn certain ions and went over multiple practice problems! This worked well for me in high school chemistry but this is clearly not the same!

Thank you for taking the time to offer your methods!!

Are you in intro chem or general chem? Are there any particular concepts you need help on? I find that khan academy is a great help in the science classes, and there are videos for most topics.

Chemistry is similar to learning another language, the more you do it, the easier it becomes. I say this because, when I was growing up in NYC my mother did not speak English, only Spanish, which resulted in me becoming bilingual. Then my mother died and I had no one to speak Spanish too. It has been 22 years since her passing and I am more fluent in Chemistry due to it being my minor in college, than I am in Spanish. Long story short, chemistry is difficult, but if you invest the time, the formulas and language will become second nature. I know this because, I had to take college level Spanish 1 & 2 in order to graduate and I found those two classes far more challenging than Orgo chem.
