In this talk, we'll look at one professor's perspective on why students struggle in chemistry. We will spend about an hour discussing how to best use your time before, during, and after class, and look at a few study skills that should help you perform to the best of your abilities in your chemistry classes (and beyond)!
If you have had previous difficulties in MCB courses or are worried about a particular one this semester, join us for a discussion/workshop that will help you manage time better and identify the skills necessary for success in the major. You’ll also learn how to take notes, think critically, and approach exams in a scientific context.
