Dr. Davis's Exam Style

Dr. Davis’s exams are highly conceptual - which means that exam prompts are wordy, confusing, and written in paragraph form. It takes time to figure out and work through each question - which is stressful during timed exams.
Dr. Davis is NEVER condescending and is arguably the most approachable professor in the CHEM department at UMD.
90% of exam questions are repeated in Dr. Davis’s exams but you must study back 5+ semesters.
Dr. Davis provides his students with enough exams (unlike ~50% of UMD professors) - 3 semesters worth WITH ANSWER KEYS including finals - to prepare you for midterms and the final.

  • Study Tips for CHEM 241 Exams

    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.

    Don’t Cram

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

    Go to Office Hours

    Dr. Davis’s office hours are very helpful. He is a genuinely nice person and students actually benefit from going to his office hours.

    Why Tutor with Me for Dr. Davis's CHEM 241?

    • Tech Savvy Tutor - I know the ins and outs of online meeting software, like Zoom, Webex, and Join.me. I'll easily fix your tech issues as well to ensure our session runs smoothly.

      Timing - If you can’t make it to Dr. Davis’s 8AM class, you’ll be perpetually behind in CHEM 241, no matter how nice or how good Dr. Davis is at teaching. He will know if you don't attend class because he recognizes the faces that come to lecture regularly in the hallway, and new faces that only show up during exams. However, as a tutor I will help you get ahead with Orgo 2 material so you're motivated to wake up early and attend class!

      Focus on What's "Actually" Tested - I emphasize topics that I know have been historically tested on in your class during our sessions. I'll reinforce really important subjects that you'll need to know to pass your exams and get your desired grade.

      Homework Guidance - A tutor needs a 1 hour session to walk a student through one of Dr. Davis’s homeworks and help them arrive at the correct answer on their own. Students need 4 hours on their own without a tutors’ guidance to achieve the same correct answer.
