What you should have learned in general chemistry

Getting Started
 
Before getting started, you might want to see how to configure your computer
to take maximum advantage of the resources offered. 

There are innumerable sources of chemical information available on the Web.
You may find the list of chemistry resources I have compiled to be useful.
