btw which is the better textbook jacaranda or heinemann? They were just described without any judgement made - or is there a better one out there?

i studied by class notes and school provided textbook and i'm first so far

if the format in the textbook is easy for you to understand you really don't need much else
all the info should be in there and if not your class teacher should have given you notes on them.

Incredibly useful :)

OK, here's a link to my notes.

The entire course is covered, along with the Biotechnology option and numerous typos.

This is hosted on an old computer of mine, and I don't think it will download any quicker than 10KB/sec
