In this post, I am going to be reflecting on my first chemistry class. I wanted to do this for a couple of reasons, One being that I know for many people chemistry is one of their hardest subjects. Two, to give people an idea of what to expect and give some advice for people taking their first chemistry class.
Wow, this semester has been hard. I took logic, trigonometry, chemistry, and computer science—all very academically challenging classes on there. For my chemistry class, I took the introduction to college chemistry; It was the prerequisite to general chemistry.
One regret is not taking chemistry my first official semester because it will take me three years in community college to get to my four-year college. Going to a community college is controversial, so I will not go deeper than that. The choice is up to you.
Tip, you can skip the introductory class by taking and passing AP chemistry class (More Information Here) or testing into a higher level of chemistry. I took honors chemistry, so it was not the worst, but that is a whole other story.
Overall, it was a good experience. I enjoyed everything that I learned. See the outline at the end if you are curious.
With the pandemic, it made all my classes a lot harder. You can ask anyone that is doing classes now, and it is hard. I had months off of not doing work for high school, and it was a hard adjustment from doing only one college class and some high school classes to taking four classes.
I learned that chemistry requires a lot of memorization of concepts.
I highly recommend constantly reviewing material; the more exposure, the better. College goes over many concepts in a short amount of time, so you need to get as much practice with worksheets that you can find; reading the textbook, homework problems, and making flashcards are all great ideas too.
