Chemistry is one subject that really builds on itself. I suppose that's not to encouraging, but to do well you need to realize this. If you have your previous tests or study guides start going over what you didn't understand. With your new stuff try and identify how previously learned concepts fit in or some stuff will make no sense. Be extra sure to study these old concepts that relate to the new stuff. Really focus on how you are getting the answers to problems rather than just trying to get homework done, and then try as many as the odds you can without looking back it the book. If you are missing problems, figure out why. Many books have solutions manuals that can be helpful if you just can't figure out how a problem was worked. However depending on these you will not learn the material as well. It should be a last resort. Good luck.

Yeah, everyone hates it but....
The best way of studying that works for me is getting those 3x5 notecards and writing questions on one side and answers on the other. Works good when trying to learn defionitions too.
Also, b4 the test you can quick look them over
When I had trouble in chemistry I went in at lunch to talk with the teacher about what to study for. Ask your teacher many questions! Also, it is a good idea to get in a study group (Sounds terrible and didn't do me a whole Lotta good, but other people benefited from it). But as I said, your teacher is the best, because they will hint at what questions may be on the test and what to review the most. Previous students of the teacher may be helpful too. Rewriting your notes and rereading the sections are a good way to get the info you need in your brain. Don't cram it all in at last minute, but do spend time reviewing the most up to 24 hours before the test (or more if needed). It's best to review a little more each night for 1 to 3 weeks before the test, or as needed. If these are exams, then start reviewing as soon as possible.
