Hopefully this is the pot of gold I have been searching for on getting help. I am a Sophomore. Over the course of this entire school year I have really struggled through my Honors Chemistry course. I really don't know what it is, I will say the lectures bore me to death, but I power through them and I usually feel like I know what's going on. This doesn't appear to be the case come test time, I always make a low B or a high C on everything. The ONLY time I didn't make a B/C on a test was the Stoichometry unit (93%). With that unit I felt as if I could see the conceptual aspects and the math was very easy. I am a pretty decent math student, but at times this has been useless. Like anyone, I get a bit anxious while testing, but I honestly don't think it hinders me that much. I don't have this issue in other classes. I'm going to guess its the concepts that are getting me because I understand the calculations. I know I have a strong memory, but all these scenarios drive me nuts. Nothing in there ever seems to flow in a way that makes sense. I also have a tough time seeing these concepts happening in my head, so during lectures I solely rely on making sense of verbal statements. I don't have strong study habits, but when it comes to this class I do try. I haven't taken Physics yet, but in Biology I was awesome. If I made a mistake in there it was usually due to me not taking my time. This is the case for me this year in Anatomy and Physiology as well. I have gained a bit of a reputation because of this. In here everything makes so much sense and all the concepts just seem to flow together. Sadly, I know my journey with Chemistry is far from over. I want to go into Molecular Biology, this has been my dream since 7th grade. I want to become good at this now, but I have no friends I could study with (I'm kind of a loner), and the teacher cannot commit to helping me after school.
