What is the best way to go about studying for the final? Will there be practice finals released?

I would say to definitely do the homework problems and review them because they give you a good idea of how the questions for the test can be structured. Also, I would say it would be a good idea to read over your notes and attend UA's sessions since they sometimes provide and go over practice problems from previous exams.

Personally, I like videos. I would also focus on the major concepts in addition to just doing problems.

For the final, I would recommend looking over key concepts and making sure that you fully understand them, and then solve practice problems. Since we have taken two tests and a midterm, we know what types of problems will be asked and should prepare accordingly.

I think for the final, you should do all homework problems and review the textbook for areas you are unsure about. I think it will also be helpful to review some of the worksheets from UA sessions, your midterm, review sessions problems for the midterm, and the 2 tests we had.

I will be studying by going over the main concepts of the year and then doing most of the hw problems as these are the best practice there is but also it would be a good idea to attend review sessions.

Review the problems you got marked off on from the midterm, do the homework problems for concepts you don't quite understand (I would recommend to do all to really expose yourself to many test question possibilities), and do the activities on SaplingLearning Plus

I would recommend taking notes from the textbook on sections you have trouble doing the practice problems from as well.

I will be reviewing key concepts, going over lecture notes, watching videos, practicing problems/reading the textbook, and attending review sessions!

I would suggest going to the student activities center and trading in your old test for other classes and seeing if there are any old finals for 14a!

I did the Marshmallow review packet and I'm going to the review session for that tonight. I'm also going to be redoing the homework problems, redoing the two tests and the midterm's problems, and possibly watching some Khan Academy videos to fill in extra knowledge. Memorize relevant formulas (from quantum!) and ligands for coordination compounds, as well as some polyatomic ions.

I have mad test jitters but I'm hoping for the best! Good luck guys

I think doing the Marshmallow packet will help, as well as going over your midterm. If you have any previous notes from Chemistry classes from high school, maybe those will help as well.
