ChemReview Users --
In Gen Chem:
In a recent experiment at Rowan University (NJ), the ChemReview
tutorials were assigned as homework to review fundamentals and prepare for lecture.
The course taught all the topics of two semesters of General Chemistry on the lecture schedule of a
course. On the ACS General Chemistry Examination for the full two semester
course, students averaged at the
percentile (versus the ACS median 50th percentile). Details
" This is a wonderful site that provides reviews in General and
Introductory Chemistry topics. "

" Your approach is well-organized, thorough, and student-friendly. I prefer that
my students use your site over any of the 'premium' publishers' sites.
took my online students out for pizza lunch where we worked through a set of your lessons.
They said it helped so much that this weekend will be our 3rd tutorial meeting. "
-- Dr. Aaron Fried
In Prep Chem:
At Frostburg State University,
the ChemReview lessons in book form were used as the text in Preparation for
General Chemistry. Of students initially enrolled, 70% went on to
General Chemistry. Of those, 75% passed first semester Gen Chem and 56%
achieved grades of C or better.
In AP Chem:
has some incredibly detailed tutorials on topics in chemistry. This
year, I had a couple of students (who struggled with the pace and rigor of my
AP class) use some of the chapters, and in this case, the topic was
equilibrium. Their grades went up dramatically. This is an excellent
resource, almost like having one's own personal tutor in a book."

These lessons are truly a great resource. They have helped my students
responsibility for their own learning, and have allowed students of different
move at their own pace.

" I recommended this site to my
and since then their
has improved significantly."
Hamid Assadian, El
spring, the ChemReview lessons were the subject of several reviews on the
AP Chemistry listserve. Since then we have received over 20 notes and
reviews from AP instructors who have used the lessons with students. These
additional reviews are here.
"I look forward to taking Chem
tests. That's how much I have improved! The lessons improve my skills

"I relied heavily on your lessons to refresh my Chemistry education when I returned to
school after 5 years. It was thorough and the techniques were easy to remember.
I got an A, which put me in the top 5% of the class. "
