Chemistry Content Study Websites

Among the sites listed here are many that are AP or Regents' level -- not because the material is equivalent to the material in college-level courses but because they can provide clarification on important, basic concepts.

One important study technique is to pre-test and post-test yourself. Several of these sites provide quizzes that can be used for that purpose.
