For data analysis used descriptive analysis. The results of this study, to show that students of SMAN 4 Kerinci have learning difficulties in stoichiometric material with a very high category. The highest level of student learning difficulties is found in indicator 9, which determines the amount of substances in the mixture (% mass,% volume, molality, and mole fraction) in question number 13 by 99.7% with a very high category. Learning difficulties experienced by students are caused by students not interested, unmotivated, and not talented on stoichiometry material.
