Does anyone have any recommendations on how to study effectively for the midterm?

Going to step-up sessions or peer learning sessions are really helpful. Memorizing the constants and equations and what they are used for. You can also do all of the homework problems instead of just the 5 you are assigned to do. Looking at the video modules he put up can also help because you can pause and play it whenever you want to.

Definitely do as MANY homework problems as you can. They help solidify the material we learn in lecture!

Step- up sessions are khan academy. Step-up sessions really helps breakdown everything and khan academy reinforces it.

I strongly recommend doing all of the assigned homework problems on the syllabus for each section instead of just 5. It's good practice and gets you ready for different types of problems that could potentially be on the midterm! Good luck on your studies :)

Do all of the homework problems and making sure you understand all of the topics in each of the learning outcomes of each outline! :)
I also think having a study group is helpful, as you can push each other to focus more.

The homework problems are helpful once you already understand the information so I recommend going to review sessions/ watching helpful chemistry videos then doing the homework problems slowly and making sure you understand why you got a certain answer

I definitely benefit from looking over my notes from lecture and discussion. Just trying to get a solid basis of WHY things occur makes it a lot easier to conceptually understand the problem. Then, when you get to the test you won't freeze up because you forgot everything you tried to memorize, you can just talk yourself through the process and use the info given to get through it, even if its a curveball :)

I definitely agree with all the advice here!

Also, I talked to my TA about this, and he suggested using the Cornell note-taking system (although it might be too late to do that now). Here's a way you can do it if you don't know how to already:

On the recall column, I write questions relating to the note section it's about. To study, I cover up the note section and try to answer the questions on my own.

I hope this helps!

I would do the online modules and go through the problems assigned for homework. I believe all of the questions will be taken from there, so it's almost like an exact study guide.

I know that one of the questions from the homework will be a test question, but can someone point me to a section of questions that have test-like qualifications? I want get some more practice, so like a recommendation to a challenging problem in the book would be appreciated.

The questions covered during Lyndon's review session posted under Dino Nuggets in chem community I believe is going to be similar to the questions that will be on the midterm.

Yeah this is probably the best way to study/learn material.
