    Preparing for year 12 chem

    I know it's a bit early.

    But I just finished year 11 exams and would like some tips to help me get prepared for unit 3 and 4 chem over the holidays.

    So how did you prepare? And if you didn't how would you if you had the chance again?

    Thank you

    Start reading up about all the analytical techniques. If you can have a good idea about those it will help a lot in unit 3.

    i wouldnt do too much over the holidays but before you go back to school read over the chapters on gravimetric, volumetric, acid-bases and redox titrations.
    the other topics i dont think are necessary to read, organic chem wont be covered till well into the semester and the other analytical techniques (NMR and IR) are completely new.
    just have a firm grasp on year 11 concepts and you will find unit 3 chem not too bad.

    unit 3's mostly stoichiometry and the analytical techniques used in analysis of compounds. Although i do agree with Mazar mostly, personally id include a brief once over or just a couple hours getting to know alkane,alkenes and their functional groups, as this area also relates to some of the analytical areas.

    id also advise to go familiarize yourself with the study design as some areas are omitted from the year 12 course such as sub shell notation.

    have fun,
