How to Pass Chemistry

by Dr. Brenna E. Lorenz
Division of Natural Sciences
University of Guam

Make sure you have the prerequisites!

    For an introductory chemistry course, you need a good, solid, high school level of math proficiency. In particular, you should already know how to work with fractions, negative numbers, exponents (including scientific notation), and logarithms, and how to manipulate and solve algebraic equations.
 

Have a good attitude!

Come to class!

Work the problems!

Make the most of labs

Get help!

Study effectively for tests!


DON'T FALL INTO THESE COMMON TRAPS

thinking that you don't need the prerequisites;

skipping class and getting the notes from friends;

showing up for class only on quiz days;

showing up for the quiz and then leaving;

copying someone else's work;

thinking that you can understand the material without working lots of problems;

putting off studying until the night before the exam;

disappearing from the class after getting one good grade;

expecting to be able to catch up after missing much of the semester;

expecting to be allowed to do an extra credit project to salvage a failing grade at the end of the semester;

expecting the professor not to count all the quizzes or homework you missed;

expecting to pass even if you have all failing grades.
