In what order should I learn Chemistry?
« on: March 26, 2020, 05:48:48 PM »
I'm a student in a humanities-oriented school. We first had Chemistry in the first year of high school, after middle school. After that year, we didn't have Chemistry anymore. I decided to keep learning Chemistry by myself, and though there is a lot of material available both online and in local libraries I simply don't know where to start.
In my school, we learned atomic structure and models and chemical nomenclature before moving on to balancing equations, which is the topic I'm most interested in. If I recall correctly, we balanced equations for oxides, salts, hydroxides, and acids. I never had trouble understanding these topics, so I don't believe I need to relearn everything. However, I would definitely appreciate some advice on how to continue. Are there any specific textbooks you'd recommend? Or websites I could use? (I'm not very fond of Khan Academy; the narrator's voice gets on my nerves.) Even just an outline of what I should learn would be enough.
Thank you.

Basically any general chemistry textbook is a good starting place.
ChemBuddy chemical calculators - stoichiometry, pH, concentration, buffer preparation, titrations.info, pH-meter.info
