Not a great deal. My best advice for you would be to dive in and dedicate a good amount of time to it once you do start. And be sure to be constantly asking your teacher to read through things and give you feedback.
choose a project whereby you know what the overall real result is, but can you get to that result using this experimental method? how close was the experimental results to the real result?
That way, you can essentially do the coursework now by making up results. A good project would be "Which experimental method is best for finding the concentration of a solution?", lets say you have a solution of CuSO4, you made it and measured it to 0.5 mol/dm3; you then use colorimetry to find the concentration, of course you would expect it to be close to 0.5 mol/dm3, make it so that the reading was 0.475 mol/dm3 etc to make it believeable, then you can say colorimetry is innacurate by 2% or whatever.
I sound like a prick, I know... but the oppurtunity is there, take it.
