    Ok so in a series and paralell, I knwo for current its:

    Series: Current is the same throughout
    Paralell: Current is split up

    but what about VOLTAGE:

    Series: ??
    Paralell: ??

    Voltage is t'other way around. In parallel the voltage across all parts of the circuit is the same (after all, you're connecting the voltmeter to the same bit of wire), and a series circuit splits the voltage: the voltage across each part of the circuit is the total voltage across the stuff multiplied by the resistance of that part over the total resistance.
