I currently enrolled myself to my Peer Learning Session (PLS) for Chem 14A through AAP and it is very helpful! It is a small group of people with an instructor who has already taken the course who goes over what Lavelle has taught in class and provides work problems to work with.

I am so glad that someone posted this because I always feel like I am out of the loop. There is a lot of people that automatically know the answers for everything and I am so lost sometimes.

I have found that Dr. Lavelle is very effective at reviewing all necessary fundamentals needed for that lesson at the beginning of lecture. I took Honors Chemistry sophomore year and I am also a freshman this year. For me at least, the best way I've found to really get through the material is to watch the video modules he has online before lecture and take all my notes on the slideshow before lecture (the slideshows in the videos are almost always nearly identical to the ones in lecture). This way I don't have to focus on writing down everything from lecture and instead I can follow along in my notes and add info as I learn it and be able to really focus in on his commentary rather than focusing on writing down the slides which I already have in my notes. By focusing on new info this way, I have more time to review fundamentals as well.

As for in person instruction, from what I can tell, many students find utilizing TA's, UA's, and office hours to be very helpful as well.


This sounds really helpful thank you.

Also, just reading the textbook provides more background knowledge that helps understanding the course reader as well.


Would you recommend reading the textbook before lecture?

I have been reviewing each concept after lecture by watching the Crash Course videos on YouTube. They have been helpful in clarifying and breaking down what is being taught in class. I definitely recommend watching a few. Hope it helps!

I worried about this as well but I have come to realize that this class is lower division and therefore Lavelle is accustomed to teaching rusty students. He gave many useful resources including study sessions both on the Hill and on campus, several times every day. Taking notes and reading the material are super important too especially having not learned many of the concepts in AP Chemistry. Either way I believe staying on task will allow you to be successful in this class. Good luck!



Thank you for the advice and information, very helpful. I also am a lot rusty in chemistry and do not really have much chemistry background.

I'm in a similar place - I took a Chemistry course the summer after my sophomore year in high school and I am now a second year. Luckily, Dr. Lavelle is starting this course with a week focused on reviewing high school chemistry topics, and I've heard he's a great teacher. Past that, I think the best way for anyone in the same predicament to catch up is to attend office hours (upwards of 30 hours a week available), and study Crash Course Chem.

I took chemistry two years ago and I feel like the best way to stay on top of the material is actually do the HW and get feedback on it. Review lecture notes before assessments and as always, never be afraid to ask questions!

Since we only have to turn in 5 answers per week, do you advise not necessarily doing all the problems listed in the syllabus and once we feel confident that we understand the material then we just make sure we have the 5 questions?

Of course, we are only required to do 5 questions per week; however, if the content is challenging I would recommend that you do more than five problems per week (but only turn in five as usual). As much as it is said, the phrase "practice makes perfect" holds very true. The best way to get the most out of classes like this one as well as math classes is to put theory to practice. For example, I haven't taken a chem class in two years so I am rusty on the material, so I selected and did about 15 questions from the options listed in the syllabus to sharpen my skills. However, if you are very comfortable with the material, you wouldn't have to do more than five problems per week, but it is a good idea to reread the textbook once in a while to make sure the information sticks.

I'm in a similar situation, I have not taken chemistry since my sophomore year of high school and this is my first year of college. However, I think using ALL of the resources we have available to us is imperative. Professor Lavelle has mentioned that there are 32 hours of assistance each week and you can also form study groups or attend office hours!

Hello, this is also my first time taking chemistry in a while. I took chemistry my sophomore year of high school and I am currently a first year. My high school chemistry teacher sucked- we literally made pancakes all year. That is it. Luckily, during my sophomore year of high school, I also took an introductory chemistry course at my local community college. However, the topics discussed in that course are still very different from the ones discussed in this course. Not to mention the ones that are similar I don't remember very well. The best advice I can give you is to make sure you do all the audio visual focus topics. Also, if you can find time to form a study group or go to peer learning secessions. I find I learn the most when I am helping others. Best of Luck.

I'm currently taking chem 14A with Lavelle and so far I've found his website modules really helpful in refreshing my high school chem knowledge. Also go to any office hours for him or the TAs if you want to spend some extra time going over things. Lavelle also announced peer learning sessions throughout the week, where you can get extra help or ask any questions.

I took my AP chemistry class as a senior in my senior high, and I'm a freshman now, so study techniques for chemistry is still fresh for me. Personally, I would recommend the strategy that keeping asking "why", especially when the professor is introducing a new concept or explaining how to solve a challenging problem. By asking "why," I think an individual could dig deeper into a concept and find out potential failure to understand a concept.

CrashCourse, Khan Academy, and Boseman Science Youtube videos are all fantastic resources for studying in my opinion. I used them a lot in high school AP Chemistry and I am sure I will use them in Chem 14A as well.

I totally get this - I had my last chem class in sophomore year of high of school. So far when it comes to reviewing high school chem in Lavelle's class, I feel like the best resources for me have been the modules and doing ALL the homework problems. I think it's very important to do all the practice you can to get the process for how to answer different types of questions down.

I took AP Chemistry my sophomore year as well so I have run into the same problem of not fully remembering the concepts I learned. I think that the online modules have helped strengthen my fundamentals and doing practice problems from the textbook has solidified these concepts!

I’m currently in the same situation as you. One suggestion adding on to all the ones above would be trying to forget the fact that you’ve learned chemistry in high school. When I think that I’ve taken AP chem and have received a good score, I might not be as focused in lectures because I think that I know them all. Therefore, try to forget that you have learned chemistry and just start knew.

Well, the first week I feel like we just went over the general chem in high school (not ap chem), but I DO think you need to know some basic concepts in chemistry in order not to make your life so hard in 14A. The best thing to do would be taking a diagnostic test and see how you feel about learning 14A. If you feel confident in succeeding in CHEM 14A, then just go with it even though extra work may need to be put on chemistry study; if not, 17 would be a good place to start. Starting from 17 doesn't mean you are behind, it just means you choose to your foundation stronger before you actually constructing a building on the top. GOOD LUCK!

Hey! I'm not sure if this works for everyone but it definitely helps me. I took chem a while ago and I forgot a lot of information, but doing practice problems in the textbook and online helps a lot. I just look up something like "limiting reactant problems". Each question, easy or hard, helps me remember a little bit more!

The modules are the biggest help, as well as just going through each problem one by one in the textbook with the answers to check it. It's not much about skill, it's mostly just practice and getting into the habit of it. The programs like Step Up and Peer Learning are also a massive support.

I'm also really rusty but so far I think doing the practice problems he has on his Course Outlines (from the 14A website) have been extremely helpful in getting exposed to practice problems. His modules have also helped me a ton in understanding some things I haven't touched up on since 4 years ago!

I literally love this youtube channel for chemistry, I used it all throughout AP and regular chem in high school. His name is Tyler Dewitt. He is so succinct and I like his videos way better than crash course or any other teaching resource. Sometimes he can be a little slow so I usually watch on 1.5 speed and its perfect :)

I have a similar experience taking chemistry sophomore year of high school, and now doing 14A is difficult. I definitely do feel that Lavelle does give us the most resources that he can with all the outside hours by UA and TA and obviously his office hours, which we have to utilize for most success. It may be a struggle at first getting used to it, but once we be proactive about it, I think we can see better results.

Do you guys recommend reading the textbook with the homework or just doing the practice problems from the book? Also do you guys go over the problems multiple times or just do it once and then move on?

I recommend reading the chapter and especially reviewing the sample problems. Breaking it down into sections will help you cover the information more efficiently and will give you time to go back and do more problems if you're rusty on the subject, or time to review.
