The examination is based on the Physical setting Core Curriculum which is based on Standard 4 of the New York State Learning Standards for Mathematics, Science, and Technology. These content-based questions test your ability to apply, analyze, synthesize, and evaluate information from the Physical setting core curriculum.

When is the Chemistry Regents offered?
The Chemistry Regents is offered in January, June and August of each year. The next Regents week will be Jan 27 - 30, 2003.

How is the Chemistry Regents Test structured?
The New Chemistry Regents, revised in 2002, consists of three parts that have to be completed in three hours.

  • Part I - Core Units (65 points)  -  55 multiple choice questions on the 5 core subject areas.
  • Part II - Extended Units (20 points)  -  Multiple choice and Open ended question from any of the areas.

Let's Review: Chemistry--The Physical Setting

Here is a thorough review focused especially to prepare high school students to do well in introductory chemistry. The book gives special emphasis to the New York State Regents Chemistry exam, and covers all the materials contained in the New York State Regents Chemistry core. The author points out the structure and logic of chemical formulas and equations, reviews the phases of matter, atomic structure, chemical periodicity and chemical bonding. Other topics include organic chemistry, the mathematics of chemistry, thermodynamics, acids and bases, electrochemistry, kinetics and equilibrium, and more. A final chapter details procedures for laboratory activities. The book contains actual New York State Regents exams

When purchasing a resource to prepare for the Chemistry Regents, make sure it was published later than 2001. Older editions do not reflect test changes.
