Chemical bonding is apparently known by most of students to be among the most abstract topics in chemistry. The purpose of the study was to determine whether chemistry anxieties existed among UiTM Diploma of Electrical Engineering students and whether chemistry anxieties were correlated with achievement in chemical bonding. Ninety two diploma in electrical engineering students participated in the study. Chemistry anxieties were measured using Derived Chemistry Anxiety Rating Scale (DCARS) which was originally developed by Eddy (1996). Meanwhile, Chemical Bonding Achievement Test (CBAT) was used to measure students' achievement in chemical bonding. The results of the study indicate that electrical engineering students were feeling anxious about chemical bonding and there was a significant correlation between chemistry anxieties and achievement in chemical bonding. Implications of findings to reduce anxieties for effective understanding in chemical bonding were suggested.
