One of the biggest problems with self studying for any standardized test is finding a curriculum that is specifically tailored to the exam’s needs. Having self-studied AP Chemistry and received a max score of 5, I can understand that although there might be many great youtube videos out there, very few are organized in a sequential manner that will allow self studying possible. And, the playlists that are able to cover the vast knowledge required for the AP exam fail to provide students with the necessary coursework a traditional classroom provides.
The Free Online AP Chemistry Course seeks to change that through two important ideas: Curriculum and Practice.
There are 17 topics included in the course, and holistically, they cover all of the big ideas of Collegeboard’s AP Chemistry Exam in May. From Avogadro’s number to the Nernst equation, each topic has several video lectures. Most importantly, these lectures have a logical sequence to them, so you don’t have to end up spending 10 minutes searching for a 5 minute youtube video just to explain what an ideal gas law is.
Accompanying each of the 17 topics are problem sets. These problem sets were not created with the intent of wasting your time. Each topic will contain the main problem set, and an extra review problem set. Combined, it amounts to 70+ questions per topic, each all getting progressively more challenging and with solutions.
