About Study Groups
Study Groups meet 2 hours a day, twice each week. In groups, a study group facilitator guides the group by reviewing course material, answering questions, working examples to illustrate course concepts, providing worksheets for students to work on together, and helping students develop effective study strategies.
How to Join
Study group attendance is flexible and allows students to attend at any point during the semester. Of course, more is gained from consistent attendance! Just attend the session that works best with your schedule and add your name and SID to the sign-in sheet.
Study Groups begin the 4th week of instruction (i.e. week of 02/05/18) and continue until the end of instruction. Most room locations are located in César Chavez.
If a group is full, then students may be asked to attend the study group at least once a week to assure their space in the group.

The SLC provides Drop-in tutoring for all students in Chem 1A and 1AL. Students can come in and talk to a tutor on a first-come, first served basis. The tutors work with students individually or sometimes in small groups, and can answer questions about lectures, course texts, homework problems, sample exams and labs.
How to Sign Up
No prior signing-up is required. Just come to the Science Drop-in Tutoring Area on 2nd floor Chávez during an open hour for your class. Be sure to sign-in at the Drop-in computer when you arrive and then go have a seat at the "General Chemistry" tutoring tables.
Mock Exams occur before each midterm or final in the course and are typically three hours long. At a Mock Exam, students will be given a practice exam written by the SLC and about an hour to work on it like it was a real exam. Then, tutors will go over the Mock Exam with an emphasis on providing tips on how to approach the real midterm or final.
Mock Exams are designed to assist students in self-assessing their comprehension of the course material and problem solving skills. Answers to Mock Exams are not printed or posted.
How to Sign Up
No prior signing up to attend Mock Exams is required and any student may attend any exam. The schedule of each Mock Exam will always be posted here and also typically through the actual lecture.Schedule of Mock Exams
