What's easier to self-study over the summer?

<p>Hey.. What do you guys think would be easier to self-study over the summer? Algebra II or Chemistry? (Not AP) I'll have to take the final in September.</p>

<p>I didn't take H science/math my freshman year, so I want to get ahead. Thanks!</p>

<p>Algebra II for sure im dying of boredom in my class right now...chemistry requires logic i believe you should have a teacher to guide you</p>

<p>I don't know how regular chem compares to AP (I only took AP Chem) but I imagine Algebra II and regular Chem about equal. If you've never self-studied anything before, it can be hard to motivate yourself. Pick whichever you think you'd be more interested in.</p>

<p>I personally think non-AP Chemistry will be a lot easier to self-study, but I would advise against it either way.</p>

<p>If you're a math wiz, then go for Algebra II.</p>

<p>I'm not a math whiz. One of the two, Ill take at a summer school. The thing is, I can only pick 1 class to take there since they are held at the same time.</p>

<p>self - study algebra II</p>

<p>"I'm not a math whiz."</p>

<p>Are you a science whiz? Either way, you need to know Algebra II to do Chemistry (at my school you could take both at the same time though). </p>

<p>I would think Algebra is more important to have a base in than Chemistry unless perhaps you want to go to Med, Pharmacy, or Dental school in the future.</p>

<p>Algebra II, it's the easiest class to self-study out of any, I think.</p>

<p>@QwertyKey: There were kids in my school in Geometry and AP Chemistry that actually did well in AP Chemistry...</p>

<p>Algebra 2 is a joke. Self study that for sure.</p>

<p>" There were kids in my school in Geometry and AP Chemistry that actually did well in AP Chemistry..."</p>

<p>If this was their freshman year, I'm not surprised. If this was their junior year, I am surprised. </p>

<p>People generally took Chem or AP Chem their junior year at my school. Maybe that's why I have that idea. However I think we used Algebra pretty extensively.</p>

<p>Sorry, I was wrong. This WASN'T in my school, mine actually does require concurrent enrollment Algebra 2 or higher to take AP Chemistry. However, this did happen at another school.</p>

<p>Would you be surprised if they were sophomores? ...lol. because they were.</p>

<p>Algebra II for sure. I aced that class easily, whereas Chemistry is killing me right now. :/</p>

<p>Definitely Alg II. It's pretty much AlgI except with a little higher difficulty and new materials. I aced the class without even trying, as did everyone else.</p>

<p>Great, thanks everyone!</p>

<p>By the way, how do you think I should go about studying Alg. II..textbook, YouTube videos (haha)?</p>

<p>Youtube videos are a great way to learn if you can refrain from watching other unrelated videos while learning. You probably ought to get a textbook too though. Try to find a difficult textbook (one with difficult exercises) as that'll make sure you learn the material. But youtube videos are a great way to introduce new concepts.</p>

<p>algebra 2!</p>

<p>khanacademy.org.</p>

<p>Alg 2 adds nothing but logarithms, exponents, and rationals, and we did function analysis in my alg 2/trig class.</p>

<p>Chemistry is harder to self-study, but I did so. I would self-study Alg II though</p>
