The Basics of Chemistry Tutorial
This tutorial focuses on learning the key chemistry concepts students will need for classes and college. Set up your personal account to track your progress through this extensive tutorial,
Description: This tutorial reviews key chemistry concepts. The general discussions in this tutorial, lists of terms and concepts, and "Additional Concepts" sections are meant to guide you in your understanding of chemistry—they are not exhaustive and must be supplemented with a good college textbook, a reliable medical dictionary and dictionary of biology, and a fair amount of general reading on the subject.
After each lesson you will find several sample questions. You should first read through the topic pages and try to answer the sample questions, which test the practical applications of the knowledge outlined, and then make notes on those areas in which you need more work. After that, you will want to go to your source material and review all subject areas, with special emphasis on those areas where you feel least confident. This tutorial is meant to give an overview of chemistry topics you have already been exposed to.

Chemistry: Atoms First - 2e
Publication Date: 2019
This text is an atoms-first adaptation of OpenStax Chemistry 2e. The intention of “atoms-first” involves a few basic principles: first, it introduces atomic and molecular structure much earlier than the traditional approach, and it threads these themes through subsequent chapters. This approach may be chosen as a way to delay the introduction of material such as stoichiometry that students traditionally find abstract and difficult, thereby allowing students time to acclimate their study skills to chemistry. Additionally, it gives students a basis for understanding the application of quantitative principles to the chemistry that underlies the entire course. It also aims to center the study of chemistry on the atomic foundation that many will expand upon in a later course covering organic chemistry, easing that transition when the time arrives. Note: This is a downloadable pdf with unlimited user access.
