Chem 115 Final Review
How to use this review
:
Use this review set to assess the material you know and the
find out what you don’t know.
These questions cover the basic aspects of the topics we
have covered in class. However,
knowing the answers to these problems should NOT
be considered sufficient for the exam.
If you are not able to do some of the problems, then go back and study the entire
section on that topic, focusing on the learning objectives in the appropriate weeks, the
readings, and the lectures.
You should also be able to do the sample lab problems on
the course website.
