We frequently receive emails from PA school applicants who are wondering what to do about low grades when they apply. Maybe you had a bad breakup or a medical crisis while you were taking chemistry or anatomy or some other important course. Or maybe you took too much on, and your grades suffered. For most students, this is about the sciences, but it could be about any subject that presents a challenge for you.
I asked him through email to explain the study techniques he used in a little more detail. Tell me what happened. I got your e-mail about figuring out how to make O.
I think its all about the process and then putting the time.
What were some of the key aspects of your study strategy for organic chemistry. Firstly, consistency is key. I think it is possible to be as happy as a clam in O.
Chem if you are consistent. This is the hardest part for me. I really do well when I follow these 3 steps: Go to professor for help. Study in a group this is really helpful! It forces you to explain yourself and gives you new perspectives on things. Chem feel like a cake walk!!
These are my keys to success. But consistency is key. Also, confidence is necessary. Confidence that this will eventually make sense. How much time per week did you devote to studying?
I studied about 2 hours a day. If I skipped a day, then of course, I must study more. Now, I will admit, I think I am a bright person. But I also have reading disability and ADD. So whatever natural gift I have is balanced out by such limitations.
What source do you use for practice problems? Are they provided from your instructor or from the textbook? Yes, practice problems in the textbook. Our teacher assigns homework which is optional, but IMO if you want to do well, the homework is not optional.
Our textbook is Org. Chem by David R. I highly, highly recommend it to any org. Chem book like o. So I am doing practice problems from both the textbook and my supplemental book.
Do you use online videos at all? I use Khanacademy on youtube just because I am used to him I was a math major and he has the best math videos on the web.
Where you do find you do your best studying? When I study alone, its usually at home. There are quite a number of distractions. And of course, internet! Sometimes I study in those cubicles at the library. I used to hate them.The fun and easy way® to understand organic chemistry.
Challenged by organic chemistry? Don't panic! This fun, easy-to-understand guide explains the basic principles in simple terms, providing insight into the language of organic chemists, the major classes of compounds, and top trouble spots.
Hi, I just realized that you already answered the chem 14B and 14BL in the same quarter with a no, but I'm afraid that if I don't finish at least chem 14C by freshman year, I'll fall behind in chem and I'll have to take chem 14CL at the same time as physics 6 series (which I'm set on finishing in the three quarters of sophomore year).
In every chemical reaction, there are participants known as reactants, which, by chemically reacting to one another, result in the creation of a product or products. As stated earlier, a chemical reaction involves changes in the arrangement of atoms. The atoms in the reactants (or, if the reactant.
You can- not tell yourself that you are not good at synthesis problems and therefore you will just focus on the other aspects of organic chemistry. Synthesis is organic chemistry. The second half of the course is all about learning reactions and applying them in syntheses.
