Chemistry Placement Exam - Sample Problems

Questions on the Chemistry Placement Test cover three areas: general math skills used to solve chemistry problems (arithmetic and algebra), general chemical knowledge (nomenclature, the Periodic Table, density, atomic structure) and specific chemical knowledge (stoichiometry, chemical reactions and the behavior of gases). The sample problems for the Chemistry Placement Exam review the three areas of the exam. To see sample problems (in PDF format), click on the Problem Set Link.
