Chemistry Study Resources

Your Chemistry Textbook

Beginning to study the textbook for your CHEM 1210 course (or reviewing a textbook from a previous chemistry class) can be an excellent way to review basic chemistry and prepare for your course.

 

Your Chemistry Instructor

Attending class regularly and asking questions are important to getting the most out of your chemistry course. However, talking to your instructor during office hours or during scheduled times in the tutoring center can help to answer any questions you may have and check your understanding of course material.
