What's REALLY Important in Chem?

Hey, I have AP Chem right now, and I think I'm doing fairly well. I have the princeton review and an old 5 steps book. I also have flash cards that generally review for each section. What I want to know is, what are the important areas and concepts that I should review most for? Is there more on stuff like equilibrium, enthalpy, or anything like that? Also, how hard would it be to get a 5? How hard would I have to work and study with the books to do well?

    Um, seriously dude, chem is tough, but it's not THAT hard if you have a good teacher. I remember when i took H chemistry the teacher ate jerky and spit on people all day...yuck! Anyways, the books seem fine, just review equilibrium and complex ions because those are always somewhere on the test. good luck!

    The most important topics are stoichiometry, gases, thermochem / thermodynamics, bonding, intermolecular forces, periodicity, kinetics, and EQUILIBRIUM AND ACIDS AND BASES.
