Hello, As the title should have implied, I am looking into the possibility of learning some basic chemistry on my own. My background in the subject is minimal, consisting primarily of the very little I've had in the earlier highschool grades -- and frankly, I have not the slightest of ideas on where to start. I therefore come asking for directions, suggestions for study materials and texts, and so forth. I have (expectedly..) knowledge in some basic calculus and physics (alas, no thermodynamics) that would likely suffice for studies at this level. I should probably mention that taking any formal courses, in whatever, is very much not feasible for me in the near future. Your advice would be much appreciated.
