Tips for Discussion Test

Does anyone have any tips or advice on how to prepare for the discussion test this week, or of what I should definitely know and go over? :)

Are there any useful video links you guys recommend or any online resources that break down the questions step by step?

I find the outlines on his website to be useful guidelines on the main topics we need to know for the tests. Test 2 covers Gibbs free energy and electrochemistry up to the Nernst equation. Homework problems are also very good practice for the types of questions that could be asked on the tests.

I have found it helpful to create my own outline of what we have learned based on the lecture notes, and reinforcing it with the relevant chapters in the textbook and Dr Lavelle's outlines.

Homework problems on Gibbs Free Energy and Electrochemistry (up to, not including, the Nernst Eqn) would be a great place to start.

Also KhanAcademy and YouTube in general has some pretty great content if you're struggling with the general concepts. But textbook practice problems are definitely the key to mastery.
