    The first and third I'd never heard of, they're brilliant!

    I used the third a lot during year 11 summer, and I thought it was really good. The first is good for resources (though they're quite hard)

    I've finished Unit 1 with it now.

    Might try and learn Unit 2 for the fun of it so I can relax in lessons, which I already so, so I can do it again!

    I was on AQA though. AS wasn't all that hard, I got over 90% average in the exams, although the ISA literally dragged my grade down to me scraping an A

    I love ISAs, we are going to do one after the half term.

    My unit 2 is organic; alkanes and that? Is that the same as yours?

    You can't be serious.. they're horrible.

    Well organic is touched upon in unit 1 (alkanes and alkenes), unit 2 is a bit more organic (haloalkanes, alcohols, aldehydes, ketones etc) and some physical chemistry (rates, equilibrium, kinetics etc)

    It's annoying because it makes grade boundaries so high...

    I await the challenge, I hope it's hard or I'll not want to do a chemistry degree :lol:

    Is it possible to learn Unit 1 with 3/4 days this holiday?
