What you need to know to succeed in Chem. 111A
Entry Level Skills
The material learned in this course builds on the fundamentals you mastered in an introductory chemistry course such as Chemistry 107. Please speak with a chemistry instructor if you need advice regarding this course. To determine if you have the appropriate background for this course, look at the first four chapters of the Chem. 111A textbook. All of the chemistry instructors have a copy of this textbook. If the material in the first four chapters of the Chem. 111A text seem foreign, you might be enrolling in the wrong class. You might need to review some of the chemical principles in the textbook used for this course and basic math operations discussed in the Appendix of the textbook. Some knowledge of computers will be helpful.
