Chemistry Courses


Preparation for General Chemistry


Chemistry is a quantitative science and thus reasonable ability with algebra and problem solving is needed for satisfactory performance in general chemistry. Students whose SAT math score is lower than 550 are strongly recommended to improve their mathematics skills before enrolling in CHEM 001A PO , CHEM 001B PO . CHEM 051 PO  is intended for students with two or more years of high school chemistry; the score on a placement examination is the normal selection criterion.
