What to look out for in UMD CHEM 135

    • High Drop Rate

    CHEM 135 is a weed-out class and the department knows it. A drop rate of 20% is not uncommon no matter who the professor is.

      Curve Setback

    Students frequently have classmates who have taken CHEM 135 before, making it their 2nd attempt (or even 3rd attempt) and therefore putting first-timers at a disadvantage for the grading curve.

      Exam Practice

    ~50% of UMD chemistry professors share a portion of their old exams and keys for students to practice (but not their complete exam set). Only 1 professor shares their complete exam set. Tutor with me 1-on-1 to find out who that is!

      Organic Chemistry

    At UMD, CHEM 135 teaches 20% of organic chemistry reactions. This extra material catches students by surprise since it involves different applied thinking. A tutor like myself, who has mastered both Gen Chem and Orgo, is best suited to help you navigate the peculiarities of this class.

  • Study Tips for CHEM 135 Exams

    Avoid Distractions

    Silence your phone, videos and tell family to stop bugging you to create a focused environment.

    Don't Cram

    Plan ahead at least 2 weeks. Study by chapter so you absorb in digestible chunks.

    Ask Questions

    Be bold and ask direct questions when you're stuck - there's value in wrong answers so you can recognize and avoid them.
