Before you can begin studying chemistry, there are some basic things (ideas and math skills) that you need to have mastered.
Once you have mastered those pre-chemistry items, you should begin by looking at atomic history and atomic structure. At this point you may want to look into nuclear science. This will lead into a study of modern electron theory. Modern electron theory will lead you to periodicity and then to bonding and nomenclature.
Understanding mixtures should lead you you to study reactions and then stoichiometry.
Lastly, you will want to study acids and bases as well as electrochemistry.
