Ilan ang nasagutan niyo? Madali ba o mahirap? Hehehe
Day 1 pa lang yan. Try to assess, sa mga magtatake ng board, kaya ko na ba? Ilan pa
ang dapat kong aralin? Sa mga 4th year and 5th year students na tapos sa lahat ng
chemistry courses, even sa mga lower years alam niyo na, ngayon po lang, kelangan
ng magfocus. :)
Day 2... Soon!
