Tutoring at Penn State Learning: Penn State Learning (http://pennstatelearning.psu.edu/) plans to offer tutors capable of answering questions for CHEM 212 as well. Practice Problems: Sample questions will be provided on Angel periodically throughout the semester. Other sample questions are in the book (relevant questions are listed in the Lecture Topics Outline below). None of these questions will be graded. They are, however, the best model for the types of questions that you will see on the exams. I highly recommend that you complete them.
