Thinking about taking Math 1, 2, and Chemistry next month...

<p>I am currently enrolled in AP Calculus AB and just took the test this past Wednesday. I am also taking Honors Chemistry and taking the Regents in June. Would you recommend taking Math 1, 2, and Chem for the SAT Subject tests? I am looking into majoring in the engineering field so I thought these would be good choices. This would be my first time taking subject tests as well. Thanks for the advice :D.</p>

<p>Math 1 and 2 - Yes. </p>

<p>Chem - Look at some material that is covered on the SAT II. I highly doubt you have covered it in your Honors Chemistry class. I would suggest waiting until you take AP Chem.</p>

<p>P.S. I took these three subject tests last week so if you have more questions, I can help.</p>

<p>Thanks. Is the Chemistry test that much more content? I consider my self to be pretty good at Chemistry, I always get 90's to 100's on tests and quizzes. How much more do I need to know for it? Right now I am in the phase of discussing enthalpy, entropy, equilibrium, etc.</p>

<p>Well, I'm not familiar with your curriculum so I was assuming the worst.</p>

<p>It seems like you've done a great deal of the material covered, so that's good. Try taking a practice test on Sparknotes and seeing how you fare.</p>

<p>Yeah, I'll try that. Thanks for the suggestions. I heard that you basically need to know the periodic table in and out right?</p>

<p>I actually didn't come across too many periodic table related questions in my May 1st exam.</p>

<p>Ah. Mostly, what did it cover?</p>

<p>I would not take Math 1, because it's redundant if you take math 2 already.</p>

<p>What do you suggest to take instead?</p>

<p>Something familiar to you. If you're going to attend a UC, you only need 2 subject tests to get in.</p>

<p>So pick a history like World or US.</p>

<p>Literature is very hard if you haven't taken AP Language or Literature. </p>

<p>Please note that ALL the subject tests are AP level. My friend took Chemistry subject last year as a sophomore coming out of honor chem. Friend got 580. He didn't understand a good portion of the test because there was so many AP terminology he was not aware of.</p>

<p>Grab a SAT Chem subject review book and start studying :]</p>

<p>Take Math 2 and Chem, for chem use a review book because a regents class barely covers even 40% of whats on the chem SAT test. If you think you're not ready for chem then just take Math 2. Math 1 is a waste of time and money if you're gonna take Math 2.</p>

<p>Well I get all the tests for free :P. And I take AP English right now. I am not too good with Government. I focus mostly on math and science.</p>

<p>On the SAT Chem do you have to know numerical values for Constants?</p>

<p>Dont take math 1 if uv taken math 2.
You dont need to memorise the periodic table coz its given in the test for reference.
Oh and SHANIQUA,i have yet to come across a quiestion that uses numerical values of constants on d test.</p>
