How to Study Chemistry, San Jose, California

Chemistry is among the first hard sciences most high school students encounter. Not only does it require them to work out problems in a real-world context, but it also calls for extensive memorization and the application of scientific principles. Many students often find studying strategies that helped them achieve success in other classes doesn't work in Chemistry.

According to our tutors at San Jose’s Study Wizards Tutoring, students are often intimidated by chemistry's difficult reputation. However, many can meet the challenge if they adopt a flexible approach and are willing to try new ways to study and learn. It's also important to note the subject is complex, which means cramming the night before will rarely be successful.

Instead, our professional Chemistry tutors recommend reading ahead before each class. This will help them prepare for what will be covered and isolate any problems they should ask questions about. If any areas are completely incomprehensible when they read, your student will know they should pay special attention during that segment of the lesson.

With chemistry, though, learning the theory and principles is not enough. Many students—mistakenly—believe if they understand a problem, they can solve it. They should concentrate on working out problems in the textbook. After tackling those, students can build their skill set by solving additional problems every day. Mastery of the subject is only achieved through continual practice, and, eventually, learning new concepts will be easier.
