      Probably similar to the reason why calculus has that same effect on most people.

      Agreed, chem is the ultimate brain pain activator.

      Well, chemistry’s really a great source of pain for most; could hasten degeneration of glial cells probably.

      I find chem easy; it’s my microbiology class that’s giving me grief this semester.

      Yea, microbiology is interesting, I find that easier than chem.

      Funny how people don’t get annoyed with questions like these, but they do if a 9th grader has trouble with homework and it’s something they learned in 10th grade.

      Of course, I have to have a genius IQ to need help. That makes total sense.

      BiologyStudent, I don’t know what specific fact you are referring to, but here is how to successfully get help on this forum: show that you did something! If you say something like "I tried but failed" I would think you did not try at all. Show what you looked up, what your answer is and how you got to it. Even if your answer is partial or completely wrong, it’s ok, as long as you can show you tried. And because you are a high-school freshman and you probably will ask fairly common questions, if you say you haven’t been able to find anything, then I honestly will say I don’t believe you.

      Many enjoys microbio, though some gets sick of the smell of a hay infusion and that gives them a brain pain; well I think it’s just a matter of attitude, our study habits and our interests. Although many hates chem but try playing our annually-held CHEMO game, win and claim a prize, a fun way to appreciate chem.

      Chem is easier than bio… but bio is more fun…

      It’s true that No Pain, No Gain. Same as what you have to do in chem.

      I found that Chem has less memorization involved… But trickier concepts…

      hate it but its chasing me from school to college[i hope it ends this semester]
      Chemistry 😐 😐
      i get 60 to 70% in it.Had engineering chemistry in my first year[but i think you might be having something different].But i love bio chemistry.so interesting 😀

      Calculus is a necessary evil. I find it’s not as hard as people make it out to be.

      You need a break. Also maybe the way you’re studying bio is wrong. It might help to look up different studying techniques.

      Biology is a hard subject, with a lot to take it. If you don’t understand something, try a different book, where it might explain it better. Also ask lecturers and friends to go over stuff you have trouble gasping. Most importanly don’t give up, just keep going over something (between breaks) and learn to write it from memory.

      I didn’t like it when I took my first unit in microbiology. I don’t know why, it just didn’t interest me. It took a studentship in the area to turn me around and now I have a BSc and an MSc in it, work in the microbial diagnostics industry and will start a microbiology research project soon.

      It’s funny how people can radically change……

      I suppose I realised what I was missing out on. 🙂
