Have you been trying to improve your scores on the AP Chemistry Atomic Structure Workbook and you’re still having trouble? Or perhaps you just want to take the exam the first time, but you can’t seem to get anything done? No matter what your reason is, I’m sure you’ve realized that you can’t just keep practicing the same thing over again, is there? When I was a chemistry student, my teacher told me, “If you keep practicing chemistry the same way, your brain will eventually forget what you learned!”
Well, I did believe him, and if I hadn’t, I probably would have never studied chemical compounds at all. You see, it was actually quite easy for me to learn and understand the chemistry that I was studying. And you should really make sure that you don’t memorize everything that you read or study.
Think about it for a second. What if you just went to YouTube, typed in a video on the search page, and watched it ten times in a row? Would that really help you understand everything that you were learning? Wouldn’t you rather just have someone tell you, “This is the way it is,” instead of sitting there thinking, “Why do I feel so stupid”?
I know that I would. We can’t always memorize everything that we read, but it doesn’t mean that we can’t make it part of our work routine. Why not go back to the very basics, and find a little checklist or list of what you need to remember before you move on to the next topic?
To make it easier for you, I wrote a simple, one page, Chemistry Atomic Structure practice worksheet that you can use to do this, and you can print it out yourself or use it online. You can either have it download into a pdf file for you to read off of the internet, or you can print it out so that you can have it right at your fingertips when you’re ready to study.
You can also use this worksheet to have pictures of the atom size charts that you have listed at the bottom of the page. This way, if you forget which chart you need to study on, you can find it within seconds! With all of the other things that we have to remember in chemistry class, the atom size charts are usually where we stop for the day, because we simply have no clue what the heck we’re looking at.
Here’s the great thing about doing this kind of Chemistry Atomic Structure practice worksheet: you get to customize it so that it matches exactly what you need it to be. You can choose to have a small-print version that has only a few sheets of paper, or a larger one that has a lot of pages that you can use.
That’s the benefit of having a small worksheet like this as part of your chemistry-atomic structure practice regimen: it’s so much easier to use than actual textbooks, especially since you can print them out in full color. Even if you only have half a sheet of black ink on the page, it won’t matter because you can always erase a bit and do some color mixing to add the color to your final design. So by doing this Chemistry Atomic Structure practice worksheet, you can easily stay on top of the material that you need to study.
