Need to take Gen. Chem. again, advise?

  1. Sep 23, 2007 #1
    I have to take a second semester General Chemistry course (qualitative analysis) in community college. I took quantitative analysis about 3 years ago, and I didn't need it for transferring to CSU Long Beach, but I've decided to go to a different school now and I need to take it after all.

    My question is, what would you all recommend I do to prepare for this class again if I forgot most of everything in my 1st semester chem? I have an old chem. book I can work out of, but how heavily dependent is the second semester on the first semester?

    I may get some angry responses to this, but you could try picking up a review book for the AP Chem test. That type of book would provide a good review of the material though not necessarily up to all college standards.

    See if you can get a syllabus to the community colleges general chem 1 course, it should list the chapters that are usually covered.

    If you already know who your professor is going to be for general chem 2, you might want to contact him/her to find out what book you will be using.
