Course Description

This course focuses on techniques useful in solving a wide range of chemistry problems, including stoichiometry, thermodynamics, kinetics, chemical equilibria, and electrochemistry.  Attention will also be given to organic reactions, mechanisms, and synthesis.  The goal of the course will be to provide students with good chemistry problem-solving skills.  Since CHEM 4392 reviews many concepts learned in General Chemistry and Organic Chemistry, it is especially appropriate for students preparing for the MCAT, DAT, PCAT or OAT exams.



Grading is based on class participation, attendance, quizzes, and homework.  Attendance is required, so if you know you cannot attend one or more days, you should not sign up for this class.
