Evolve Exam Prep and Tutoring gives a topic by topic review of the Chemistry Regents Exam. We review major topics like: Math Skills Needed for Chemistry, Atomic Concepts, Periodic Table, Moles/Stoichiometry, Chemical Bonding, Physical Behavior of Matter, Kinetics/Equilibrium, Organic Chemistry, Oxidation-Reduction, Acids, Bases and Salts; Nuclear Chemistry.
After each section teachers will hand out practice questions, review answers, answer any questions and continue to the next topic. Our teachers will also teach students how to read the reference table, properly use it, and be more successful with their time management and overall exam results.
Evolve Exam Prep and Tutoring’s Chemistry Regents Prep Course runs from 9am-4pm, with a few 5-10 minute breaks, and a 45-minute lunch break.
Classes are small and capped at a max of 18 students.
Our classes are taught close to exam dates so that students will retain more information and are designed for review of previously learned concepts with a focus on test-taking strategies and practice problems – we call these “mini-lessons”.
These mini-lessons are followed by questions and further review. Teachers walk around while students are working on the practice problems of each individual concept – which is another opportune time for students to ask individual questions about questions they are working on. We also welcome additional questions during breaks.
Our teachers are there to help you get answers and understand the material, not to “get through” the course.
What our parents and Children say about us
Get To Know The Chemistry Regents Exam
- The Chemistry Regents exam is divided into 85 questions in three parts with a three-hour time limit to complete.
- Part A: 30 Multiple-choice questions that offer several answers from which you choose the one that best answers the question or completes the statement. This part of the exam has content-based questions assessing your knowledge and understanding of core material and represents approximately 35% of the examination (30 total points).
- Part B1: This section of Part B consists of 20 multiple-choice questions as described in Part A. These questions are content- and skills-based and designed to assess your ability to apply, analyze, and evaluate material. The combined sections of Part B (multiple-choice plus constructed-response) represent approximately 30% of the examination (20 total points).
- Part B2: There are 15 constructed questions in this section. In a constructed-response question there is no list of choices from which to choose an answer; rather you are required to provide the answer. Constructed-response questions test skills that include performing numerical calculations, drawing and interpreting graphs, and analyzing material. The combined sections of Part B represent approximately 30% of the examination (15 total points)
- Part C: There are 20 total questions in this section. These are constructed-response questions that require more time and effort on your part to answer. Part C consists of content-based and application questions assessing your ability to apply knowledge of scientific concepts and skills. Be sure to write complete, clear sentences while using correct chemistry in your explanations. This part represents approximately 20% of the examination (20 total points).
Tips on How “Survive”
The Chemistry Regents ExaM
- Review Previous Tests
- By examining the kind of questions asked on older tests, you'll learn some important information that includes the targeted subject matter as well as level of item difficulty. You can find several old Regents Exams along with their answer keys by visiting the official Regents website (http://www.nysedregents.org/).
- Answer Practice Questions
- After looking over questions that were written for past Regents Exams, see how well you do on similar items by answering some chemistry practice questions. Your performance on these questions will indicate which topics you need to focus on the most during your prep.
- Make Study Cards
- Once you become aware of any potentially troublesome topics, you can make simple study cards that either have words or questions on the front, and either definitions or answers on the back. Make as many as you think you’ll need, and look at them each day until you know them like the back of your hand.
- Study, Study, Study!
- Do not overwhelm yourself with trying to learn or go over everything all at once. Take it slow and study a little bit at a time. Always work from the beginning, for example, go over the things that you learned at the beginning of the course or year because those are the things that are not as fresh in your memory.
- Work Smarter, Not Harder!
- If there are concepts and terms that you feel comfortable with, simply skip over those. Do not waste your time studying things that you already know.
- Reference Tables
- Since there are going to be reference tables on your exam, you can spend less time studying those topics. Just make sure that you know how to properly read the table or chart that you will be referring to.
- If there is something you do not know, re-read your notes in the morning when you wake up and at night right before you go to bed. This will help keep the information fresh in your mind throughout the day.
- Ask for help!
- If there are concepts you do not understand, do not hesitate to ask for help. Consult your teacher during the course, write us an e-mail afterwards, give us a call – we are YOUR resource for further help!
