Hello everyone!

I've already asked a question regarding college chemistry difficulty. You all helped alleviate my worries. But now I'm second guessing myself again. :(

Like I've said before, because of personal problems in my life at the time, I was unable to take high school chemistry. Now, I need college chem. I wasn't so worried until my cousin told me she got a C in the same class/teacher I'll be taking. And she took HS chem AND physics. That makes me think if she got a C, I'm bound to fail!!! Although, I did get an A+ in college algebra even though math is my weakest subject.

Has anyone else been in a similar situation? Please be honest, do you think I have any chance at all in this class?

By the way, I did go out and buy Chemistry for Dummies and I'm reading it now. Thanks for the advice!

Ive officially started Fund. of Chem! Im so proud of myself! In the lab we were put into groups of 4 and I was surprised to find out that not one of my group members had ever taken a chemistry class!! I was the only one in my group who fully understood the material, so I had to teach them.I feel amazing. It's very basic right now and I know it's going to get much harder, but I have confidence that I can pass this class with a good grade. I'm so excited! Everyone has been such great support!

That's awesome! I had psyched myself out over chemistry too and ended up acing it! Sounds like you are off to a great start!!
