Currently, I'm taking a 1st year chemistry course.
The topics covered so far are:
1. Atoms, Molecules, and Ions.
2. Stoichiometry.
3. Chemical Reactions and Solution Stoichiometry.

Last week, we finished off the Gas unit, and next week, we're starting Thermochemistry.
I've been doing well on the 3 units above but the Gas unit is really hard to handle.
Unlike those three units, it has a lot of derivations and equations and the concepts are much more difficult for me to grasp.
This unit seems like the hardest unit in first year general chemistry course.

Can anyone please give me advice on how to do well on the Gas unit, as well as what to expect on this part of the course on the exam?

Thank you.

Can you provide the syllabus for your Gas unit?
"Say you're in a [chemical] plant and there's a snake on the floor. What are you going to do? Call a consultant? Get a meeting together to talk about which color is the snake? Employees should do one thing: walk over there and you step on the friggin� snake." - Jean-Pierre Garnier, CEO of Glaxosmithkline, June 2006

Here are the topics that were covered in order:
-Gas Laws
-Gas Stoichiometry
-Partial Pressure
-Kinetic Theory of Gases (this is the topic that I had most problem with)
-Effusion and Diffusion       
-Real Gases
