ACS Organic Chemistry Study Guide - What You Need To Know

Preparing for Your ACS Examination in General Chemistry - What Is It?

This is usually referred to as The General Chemistry Study Guide. This includes 113 pages in three categories. The first part is a brief explanation of content in general chemistry. In the second part there are example exam questions. In the final part of the guide, there are practice questions. Content is derived from both semesters of General Chemistry and includes: Descriptive Chemistry / Periodicity Electrochemistry / Redox Molecular Structure and Bonding States of Matter / Solutions Atomic Structure Energetics Dynamics Stoichiometry Equilibrium Laboratory Chemistry

ACS Organic Chemistry Study Guide - How To Handle Test Anxiety

Many of you experience the dreaded 'test anxiety' when you first see the exam. This is very natural, and it stems from uncertainty. It is all material that has already been presented to you in class. It is true that you must read the directions, but nothing on the exam is meant to trick you.

ACS Organic Chemistry Study Guide - How To Study For It.

Do start the serious studying at least one week before the exam. The best way to learn the material is by writing it, not reading it. Reading is good for the initial exposure to the material, but to really learn it you have to write it. Many of you use flash cards - the first time you write the reaction scheme on a flash card you are performing the same operation that will be required of you on an exam (and that's great), but after that, when you 'study' the cards, all you are really doing is reading them.

Remember you have a whole week so you don't need to do all the reactions in one day. Make it more difficult by changing the direction of the reaction. You might see the reaction presented from left to right, but the exam will often test your knowledge from right to left

The best way to learn most anything is through repetition. This is why you need to start as early as possible and do a few reactions everyday. Do learn the mechanisms in the same way - write them over and over.

ACS Organic Chemistry Study Guide - What Not To Do

Don't wait too long before you start seriously studying the ACS Organic Chemistry Study Guide.
Time is not on your side. You have many classes and they all require a time commitment, but this can be managed if you do some organic studying everyday.

Don't depend on tutors or group-study to learn the material. Tutors and group study work best when used to clarify complex points or help confirm that you already know the material when you have to explain it to others.

ACS Organic Chemistry Study Guide - Final thoughts

What I hope to give you in this study guide are my strategies regarding the best, most effective, way to study organic chemistry. Your goal is to manage and learn the vast amount of material that is presented to you in this class.
