  1. How to Study for Dr. Maynes’ Chemistry Tests And get A’s

  2. Notes • You do take class notes, don’t you? • Helps to remember the material • Going over them refreshes your memory • Use them in conjunction with the Unit Review Notes • Makes sure you look at the most important stuff

  3. Homework • Review the homework problems • Some may be questions on the test • Take notes when we go over them • Ask questions about the ones you do not understand • Keep them in your notebook for review • Which is easier to do if you answered in complete sentences as you were supposed to

  4. Classwork • Introduces new concepts or provides practice • May provide another way to look at the material compared to the “lectures” • Again, a good source of problems for the tests • Since Dr. Maynes is available, this is a good time to get one-on-one help without giving up your lunch period • Keep Building Skills, Chem Quandaries and Modeling Matters – read over before test

  5. Labs • Not just a time to socialize and play • Often reproduced in some way on the test • Questions • Problems/calculations • Simulated data sets • Ask questions when returned • Save lab reports in your notebook • Review before test

  6. Quizzes • Quizzes highlight important stuff • You should expect to see it again • Sometimes the same question! • Sometimes re-worded or extended • Study the quizzes • Make sure you know what you got wrong and what is the right answer

  7. Dr. Maynes’ Review Notes • Designed to guide your study • Highlight important points • Suggests definitions to emphasize • Actually mentions 95 – 99% of material in questions on the test • If you don’t recognize and recall something you read in the handout, find time to ask about it

  8. The Book • You are expected to have read the Unit/Chapter • The best way to “read” a science textbook is to take some notes while doing so • Make believe you are making up “crib notes” on index cards • Then use the cards to study

  9. Memorization • There’s very little of chemistry to “memorize” • Most of it is relationships and logic • But memorize: • Certain few constants and key values • Names and symbols • Information available from the periodic Table on the wall and how to figure it out • Certain few mathematical formulas
