    Question How to Study for a Practical Assessment

    We have a prac coming up on the water topic and I'm curious as to how I study for it. Do you have any tips?

    Do you know what the prac is? It will be hard to study for something you don't know what you're going to be tested on

    - Know stuff about scientific method, reliability, accuracy, validity, etc. (skills)
    - Do you know exactly what dot points are going to be tested? If you do, then study those specifically in your textbook and any other prelim chem book you have.
    - If you don't know, then study all the pracs in the topic: aim, method, safety precautions, results and conclusion (last two not that necessary, but it helps to know what you should get in case you stuff up your experiment in the exam). Know the theory behind them as well.

    Hope this helps.

    Do this ^

    Also, Remember formulas, it's probably about molar heat of solution or concentration or density etc.

    q = mCΔT

    c = n/V

    n = m/M

    σ = m/V

    Know your ionic equations, balancing equations, different chemical reactions.
