Test 2

Postby Jaci Glassick 2G » Thu Nov 14, 2019 3:45 pm

How are you guys studying for the test next week? I don’t really know where to start.

My TA said that test 2 would be everything that was not on midterm up to what we learn in class on Friday. So, things such as like dipole-dipole, intermolecular forces, and VSEPR theory.

I'm going to do all of the homework problems starting from section 3F up until what we learn in lecture tomorrow, and watch some videos online for extra help!

I talked to my TA and he told me that the test should be pretty much bust all of outline 4 i think.

Would just doing homework problems be the best option? A lot of people from last year said test 2 was harder than test 1 but im not understand how, if we only learned a couple of things after the midterm.

I think going over outline 4 and doing all the homework problems would be a good way to study.

Suggestions to study:
-VSEPR models
-molecular shape names... MEMORIZE (e.g. trigonal planar)

we honestly have not learned much since after the midterm

Definitely get started on homework from Outline 4, also review the intermolecular forces.

It should be on everything after the midterm up to Friday's lecture. So studying all the lecture notes and homework problems would be beneficial.

I think it would be important to go over the points in the outline and making sure that you understand all of them.

I'm using lots of flashcards to memorize the specific shapes and bond angles. Do you think that this will be the same level of difficulty as test 1 or will it be closer to what we had for the midterm?

I'm reading over the textbook sections relevant to the topics tested on the midterm to get a grasp of the conceptual ideas, and then I'm going to do the homework problems. Looking over lecture notes and solving problems is probably the way to go!
