Abstract: A survey is carried out on first year students of Science Departments at a Greek university, in relation to knowledge of basic chemical principles, following a semester of lectures and tutorials within the General Chemistry class. The findings attempt to correlate the assimilation of information with the curriculum adopted by the school of study and the intensity of teaching both in lecture hours and in laboratory experiments carried out.
Keywords: chemical principles, university students, curriculum, preconceptions
