First priority – make sure that you have memorized EVERYTHING. Then, go to and make sure you can write and name chemical formulas. Practice, practice, practice!!!

Next start practicing the different kinds of problems – do at least three of each one of them. And also try those on Another great place to practice concepts and application of concepts is the online textbook and the review games that are there.

One last help session – Wednesday morning, 7:15ish A.M. Good luck – I’ll be praying for you! You can do it!!.
