Chem 2B, Winter 2007 UCSB How to do well in Chem 2B “No instructor, no matter how gifted they may be, can teach you anything if you aren't actively engaged in, and responsible for, your own learning.” (Dr. A. J. Pribula, Towson University) 1) Study everyday and do not wait until the day before the lecture or the week before the exam to study 2) Attending the lectures 3) Do not memorize new concepts but try to understand them. Learn when memorization is necessary and do it only when necessary. The list of things which must be memorized is fairly short (e.g., elemental symbols, nomenclature rules, solubility rules, definitions of units, rules for electrolyte behavior, etc.), but these things are crucial. 4) Before the lecture : Read the weekly assigned chapter from the book carefully before coming to the class. 5) After the lecture : - Read the book again - Go over the lecture - Write down any question you have. You can ask your classmates if you have a study group or ask me during the office hour. - Do the problems at the end of each chapter. Try to do as many as you can and not only the assigned ones. 6)
