Study Guide - Midterm?

Postby Bethany Yang 2E » Sat Jan 23, 2021 1:29 pm

Hi! Has anyone made or found a study guide for this upcoming midterm that was really useful for them that they would be willing to share/recommend? I feel like I don't have a super concreate foundation on what we've been learning, and it would mean a lot to me if someone could share a resource :). Thank you so much!!

I don't know of any inclusive study guide that has been made, but in my experience taking 14A with lavelle, the outlines and 'learning objectives' on the outlines make a pretty good study guide. If you do all the textbook problems (and can do them correctly) and understand all the topics on the outlines, then I think you can feel pretty confident that you've covered what he will test you on!

Hi,

When I study for Chem midterms I have found it helpful creating a study guide based on the learning outcomes/outline points on Dr Lavelle's website. This way you can connect his lectures to our outlines which include the topics we will be tested on.

I hope this helps :)

Although I don't have a study guide for this midterm, I have found that reading the textbook and reviewing the textbook problems is the best way to prepare for the exams. Taking brief notes from the textbook might be useful as well.

I agree with the following the outlines from each unit. In terms of making a study guide, I would recommend making your own out of the outlines and putting book problems as examples if that makes sense. Also, considering the midterm is multiple choice and will likely be a fair amount of math, I recommend review the book problems and sapling and just making sure you don’t make arithmetic errors.

The outlines themselves are super helpful since you get to narrow down what you should specifically know by the time the midterm comes around, and the textbook problems are also super helpful. The better you get at doing those, the easier the midterm felt (at least for me last quarter.)

It is important to do as much practice as possible because this midterm compared to 14A is more calculation based.

Although there is no actual study guide for the class, it is best to look at the 3 different outlines and try completing as many textbook problems as you can to continue studying for the midterm.

The textbook problems are a sort of study guide. Perhaps some UAs will help and provide their own midterm practice

My TA recommended focusing on the textbook problems/readings!

Hey! im not sure if any specific study guides have been made, but you can also try checking this forum for old practice questions just in case you might want some extra practice.

I find it super helpful to just go through the section outlines!

I don't have a particular study guide, but I find the most help on going over the textbook problems recommended as well as reviewing hard problems from Sapling!

The text-book problems are an amazing resource!

I like to use the bullet points on the outlines to assess what I know how to do or don't know how to do. Doing the textbook problems on the outlines really helps too.
