Remember, units 3 and 6 are the ISA - so there aren't notes for them (see FAQs below).
If you appreciate them, please drop a comment on the download page and share them via the social media outlet of your choice.
I also recommend staying for the blog on the home page; it's a good read.
There aren't any ISA notes in here! The ISAs don't actually have any new material in them. They're just experiments based on the other two modules. So just find out what topic it's on and revise that from the notes of the relevant section. ISAs also vary from year to year and school to school, so compiling a complete set of notes on them would be very difficult and slightly pointless!
Do you have notes for [insert exam board]? Nope, sorry, I don't have notes for any other exam boards. The courses will share many similarities though, so you can still use the notes, but you will have to look up the differences to make sure you don't miss anything!
Do you have notes for Biology/Physics? Again, nope, sorry. These notes are courtesy of my chemistry teacher, we didn't have anything similar for Physics and I did not take Biology.
How do you/should I revise? Take these notes, read through them a few times, and make your own notes from them. Don't bother writing down anything that you find easy and know like the back of your hand; it makes the notes a lot more condensed and tailors them to you (as well as helping to reinforce/remember it as you write). I then read over the new notes a few times, and start doing past papers - the first few I check my notes during if I can't answer a question, or am not 90%+ sure of the answer. When I can do most of the paper confidently I start doing them without notes and marking them afterwards. Note that I find this method particularly effective, but everyone is different.
What about using the textbook as well? I personally did not use the textbook. If there's a particular section of the notes you don't understand, or think could be expanded on, that is when I would resort to using the textbook. The textbook is very wordy, contains a lot of superfluous information and is generally why revising would take so damn long. These notes tell you exactly what you need to know to answer the questions on the exam paper (because they are actually pretty much the same year-in, year-out).
.zip files! Aargh! What do I do? Windows should be able to open .zip files by default, just right click it and it should say "Extract here" or something similar. Failing that, download winRAR and press OK until it installs, then right click it and press extract here. Then there'll be a folder for each module, and in that a .pdf file for each topic. Those will open with Adobe Acrobat.
@Aeon, everything on these could come up in the exam, so yes I'd learn it all of course some stuff won't, they can't fit everything in the exam.

Woops, I meant the two ISA exams for chemistry.
The ISAs differ year from year I believe (in the details), really you just have to know the topic(s) that are covered in the test (ask your teacher) and revise them, seeing as they're part of the other two modules
