Does anyone have any techniques or strategies they will be using to study for our upcoming test this next week?

I am going to go over the homework problems, the examples given in the textbook, the problems posted on the modules, and the worksheets posted by the UAs. I am also going to go over what we should know conceptually from outline 1 (i.e use SI units, Convert units, ect.).

I think the route im going to go with is the use of hw problems as a guide also. Ive taken this class before but dropped it shortly after the first exam, the questions were very similar to the hw problems.

Thank you, the test is going to be only on the fundamentals chapter correct?

One thing I do a few days prior to taking an exam is make a list of what I know and don't know, that way I can be sure not to miss anything. Using the worksheets provided by the UA's, modules, and fundamentals section is what I use to study. What really helps me is watching videos that really breakdown the steps, I recommend Organic Chemistry Tutor, he was really great videos explaining many basic chem concepts.

I normally do these: review homework problems, ask questions about things I don't understand, and try my best to comprehensively understand the word problems we are given.
