Tips for students to succeed in Chemistry-
Dr. Guo offers the following advice to students desiring to succeed in Chemistry:

Chemistry is hard, but not impossible. (Lucky, you are not studying the String Theory). Chemistry has its own rules, which sometimes do not make sense to a beginner. The key to make sense of things in chemistry is to spend time reading and doing homework. Practice makes perfect. This is true in many other disciplines, but particularly so in chemistry.
