Hi Danielle, 

  I just finished taking AP Chemistry at my high school. I know that I'm not in college yet but would like to suggest you finding a LabQuest and its add-ons. This is very helpful in labs. There several different probes that can be inserted into the LabQuest to collect data. You need LoggerPro software loaded on a computer if you want to emboss graphs or even see graphs using JAWS. It has a periodic table built inside, a place to write notes into, a way to collect data, and tables can be read on it auditorially. I hope this helps! 

PddS.: I also got a textbook that was helpful. It had graphics and tables that I do feel to understand information. It also was just good for me to read the written material in it. 


“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”
1 Corinthians 13:4-7 NIV
