As we near the end of Chem 14A and the final is next Sunday, may I ask how any of you will study for the final exam? I did not do so well on the midterm exam and I would like to do much better on this final exam as it will be worth way more than the midterm. Like what do you guys plan on studying and which day, focus points or resources I should use. Thanks everyone.
Another idea would be to redo the midterm questions. Since we got the test packet back, it wouldn't hurt to look over which problems we missed and get extra practice for what we went over at the beginning of the quarter.
What helped me was reading the textbook! Lecture makes it hard to absorb everything in for me, specially since the slides are just blocks of writing and going through the textbook instead lets me go over the material easily and at my own pace.
Reading the textbook is always a good way to reinforce information, especially since a lot of the midterm questions were conceptual. Attending step up sessions and workshops are always really helpful to practice. Hope this helps!
For the exam, the textbook has a lot of information in order to study since it reinforces a lot of information! Also, I would go back and study the problems that he assigned within the textbook because there is a possibility of them being in the final. The notes do hold information, but I think doing practice problems help me more in my studying.
To echo the above statements, I know there are a lot of problems in the textbook that he assigns, but I'd just do all of them, or least all the different kinds of problems, as he does usually pull one question from the textbook and puts it in the test. I also think the UA workshops are very helpful, and review past tests and midterm problems would be useful.
What helped me a lot was attending the large midterm review session and going over the worksheet given many times in order to catch any mistakes I could potentially make on the test. For the final, I suggest going over missed problems from the midterm and going to future review sessions.
I think the best thing is to do as many homework problems, if not all, as you can. He likes to pull questions from the homework as well as make questions that resembles the homework problems. Reading the textbook is also a good idea to help you understand the information more in depth. I found that doing the review practice exams and going to the review sessions helped a lot.
