No. If you have taken a more advanced Chemistry class, then you do not have to take Chem30A.
Only if you have taken and passed 100W in a different major, can you be exempt. But 100W is required by the major and must be taken.
If you are involved in an intercollegiate sport, 1 unit of PE is waived. However, all students are required to take the 2 units of PE.
Yes, you can! See http://info.sjsu.edu/web-dbgen/catalog/departments/KIN-section-4.html
