Ch 51: Solution Chemistry for the MCAT: Tutoring Solution

About This Chapter

The Solution Chemistry chapter of this MCAT Prep Tutoring Solution is a flexible and affordable path to learning about chemical mixtures. These simple and fun video lessons are each about five minutes long and they teach all of the processes involving solution chemistry required in a typical MCAT prep course.

How it works:

  • Begin your assignment or other MCAT test-prep work.
  • Identify the solution chemistry concepts that you're stuck on.
  • Find fun videos on the topics you need to understand.
  • Press play, watch and learn!
  • Complete the quizzes to test your understanding.
  • As needed, submit a question to one of our instructors for personalized support.
