To help in review of chemistry: View the enhancement video on chemistry; it’s on Blackboard. Look over the fine text used for Chem 050; it’s in the bookstore. Other useful texts: Beginning Chemistry , by Goldberg (Schaum outline series). See other review books as well; many of these are excellent. There are very good web-based tutorial courses for brushing up in chemistry.
