Sources for an absolute beginner in chemistry.
« on: December 12, 2020, 11:58:39 AM »
I've never had a chance to ever learn Chemistry, none of my previous educations taught it after all, and when I actually try researching it online, they assume you already know at least something about the subject already.
Does anybody know a place I can learn from the absolute beginning? I have just registered, so I'm not entirely sure if this is right place to ask tbh, don't destroy me if I'm wrong lol.

A bit depends on your general education level, but if you know absolutely nothing you can always try to start with High School textbooks - they do start from the beginning.

The Dummies and Idiot's Guide book series both have introductions to general chemistry that would be appropriate if you are looking for just a primer on the big concepts.
