    So yeah... Im starting college Chem next week, kinda nervous. I had Biology last semester and I enjoyed that and did well.. top in the class. However, the unit on chem was by far the most difficult for me to understand. What should I expect in my upcoming venture into chem? also what kinda math skills are gonna be necessary? I'll be taking college algebra next semester, to give you an Idea where I sit with math. Thanks :-D

    It is unlikely that you will need anything other than basic algebra and maybe a little geometry in a low-level chem class.

    What did you find most difficult in the chemistry part of your biology course?
    Basic algebra should be more than enough to cover the maths aspects, as scifor said.

    the chemistry in you biology will be come alot clearer when you learn the principles of chemistry. i did both , at the same time and by the time we had finished both, everything was clearer.

    the maths should be ok.

    just a little note - i have just finished and got back my results yesterday (the leaving, not A levels). lol one begining and one ending.
    Stumble on through life.
