This addresses a gap between college chemistry lecture and high school chemistry memories of
chemistry material. 

                                                                         --        Nancy Waits, Instructor, Lon Morris College 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.

I have linked ChemReview to my web pages for general chem students. Your tutorial materials are extremely readable and the practice problems very well done.  I have suggested that students go to ChemReview in preference to other Chemistry problem books.

These lessons encourage students to take more responsibility for their learning.   I used
the first 8 modules for summer homework.  The results were excellent.

ChemReview provides a good review of general chemistry topics and also gives mini lectures to help
understand difficult topics.

These tutorials are wonderful.  Well thought out and very specific which helps learners who need
more background.

 The Chem Review lessons have been very helpful.  I usually type up my own notes but Iíve been
looking for others and I like your clear way of explaining things.

I host a free group tutoring session for general chemistry students.  I recommended your site for
practice on stoichiometry and other math based concepts.  You give great step-by-step break downs
of how to look at a problem.

Excellent resource for chemistry.  Presentation and structure is fundamental and very reader friendly.

Reviews from Students:

My professor suggested that we use ChemReview often to assist with our studies. 

On our acid chapter, we moved quickly through full titration curves involving weak and strong
bases/acids, pH,  and buffers.  Your lessons assisted me greatly and I was able to score a 99 on
that test. 

I have maintained an A average thus far.  I would not have been able to perform so well without
your excellent teaching materials. 

                                                                          --     Buu Du, Oklahoma State University-OKC

I have failed at chemistry in the past but am currently getting an A after using these modules.

                                                                             --    Jody Van Thull, Folsom Lake College

I review on this site because it offers a different viewpoint.  Added to the way my professor instructs us,
it is enough for the material to*click*. I am able to learn and remember "why" things are happening
and not just memorize formulas.

                                                                            --    Craig Giles, Moorpark College

The lessons pinpoint the fundamental problem solving processes which aren't spelled out very well in
our textbook.  Being able to go through the problems step by step in your lessons, then return to the
text problems has worked very well.  I'm now much more confident in the subject.

                                                                            --      Finn Parnell, University of Washington

These lessons have been incredibly helpful.

 The lessons on your website have helped me tremendously in preparing to take my Optometry
Admissions Test (OAT).

I'm a sophomore taking AP Chemistry.  I have not had a 1st year chem class, and the lessons have been 
a lifesaver!  Since I started using them, I've been creeping up from a B to a B+ and now I'm almost at
an A-!

                                                                              --    Gregory Ow,  Galileo High School

The modules are great for practice drills!

                                                                          ††† --    Annie Hoang, Yale University

Our professor gave us a copy of module 7 to help with naming compounds.  I noticed the website name
at the bottom and have printed a few modules for myself.  If it is any indication, I received an A+ on my
first two exams.

                                                                               --      Ron Clark, Austin Community College

This is my second attempt at chemistry, the first time I ended up having to drop the class in order to
avoid receiving a failing grade. This time around I am doing much, much better and my grades are
in the A - B range. Your site has been extremely helpful and I have in fact suggested it and given the web
address to some of my other classmates who have been struggling.

This site is just awesome. Any time I fall behind in Chemistry or feel lost, I pull up this site and do the
lessons and I'm right back on it.

Chemreview often helps to close in some of the gaps that I experience when studying my chemistry text.

I have two prior degrees, including one in engineering.  I spent a week on Hess's Law attempting to
understand, and after using your site I had it mastered in about 10 minutes.

I began Chem I in Fall 2007 and was immediately overwhelmed.  I found your website and worked
my way through a tutorial only to find that WOW, I actually understood what was going on!  I
understand so much better.  This was by far the best material I found, better than  both books that
I purchased and mostly found to be a waste of my money.  Yours is excellent!  5 stars!

Thank you for presenting this information in such a straightforward manner.

I don't always grasp 100% of the concepts during lecture, but everything is clear once I go through the
tutorial.  These lessons are fabulous!

I was worried that I would fail chemistry because my first quiz scores were very low.  Now I'm already
subjects I thought were beyond me and I'm looking forward to the rest of the semester.
These lessons have helped me tremendously.
