I'm not doing so well in ap chemistry. i think i'm not studying the right way. can anyone suggest how i can raise my grade? i do my homework but it doesn't seem to help.
1) get a tutor twice a week for a hour each time, until you are caught up.
2) If you want to have GREAT study habits, you have to change your habits, which is hard, but your MOM can help. Have her look at this site (It will get you ready for college).
You cannot do this change of habits alone. Ask your mom to help, giving feedback, checking, etc. Changing to good habits is hard, but worth it. It lasts forever.
Work the problems. Understand what you work and understand the definitions. Memorizing problems won't work. Memorizing definitions won't work if you don't understand them. Talk with your teacher and ask if he/she can pinpoint the problem you are having. If you are into the semester by a month or more, consider a tutor.
