Preparing for the Chemistry Placement Exam


These exams will cover material from Chem101 and 102 at the same level of difficulty as presented at Penn.

The exam questions will range from concept-oriented to problems requiring a specific numerical solution. Although there may be some "multiple choice" questions, many problems will not be multiple choice and will require all work to be written on the exam.

To prepare for the exams you should review material from the following text:
 

 Zumdahl: Chemical Principles - 8th Edition

Chem101: Chapters 1 through 5, 12, 13, 14, 16.
Chem102: Chapters 6 through 11, and 15.
