Preparing for your ACS Examination in General Chemistry
The Official GuideBook - 1998
The major divisions of this book correspond of the common groupings of topics covered by ACS exams for general chemistry. If you are taking an exam that covers the full year of general chemistry, all of the topic groups can be expected on the exam. If you are taking a first term exam, only the first five topic groups pertain. For the second term exam, the final five topic groups are most important; although the second term topics do build upon knowledge acquired in the first term. Each topic group is introduced with a short discussion of the important ideas, concepts, and knowledge that are most frequently stressed in general chemistry courses. These discussions are not a substitute for studying your textbook, working the problems there, and discussing the challenging ideas with your teachers and fellow students. Rather, they are reminders of what you have studied and how it fits into a larger understanding of that part of the natural world that we call chemistry. This book is designed to help you demonstrate your real knowledge of chemistry. hen you take a general chemistry examination prepared by the American Chemical Society Examinations Institute, you should be permitted to concentrate on demonstrating your knowledge of chemistry, and not on the structure of the examination. We sincerely hope that The Official Guide will enrich your study of chemistry, and minimize the trauma of effectively demonstrating what you have learned.
