    has an exam on tuesday, any hints on exam technique or revision tips?
    i have been through my notes and remembered a lot of it. and i have practised a few questions from past exam papers. theres 1 question in particular that has come up for the last 5 yrs, and i hope it comes up again, as i understand that you get marks for rough work, even though the structure you may get to, maybe wrong... as long as you explain how u got there, u sumtimes get marks anyway...
    i dont particulalry perform well in exams, so any hints wud b appreciated...:woo:

    Personally I'd say just do every past paper going, then mark them and see where you're good/bad. If there's an area where you're lacking maybe read through it in your textbook and do some of the questions in there if there are any.

    Definitely show your work. Even if you haven't got a clue, writing something is better than nothing. If there's questions on calculations, make sure you write down the relevant equations, remember your units (or know how to work them out) and give answers to the right number of decimal places / significant figures.

    Will you be sharing with us what that 1 question is? Are you talking about the intermolecular forces one by any chance? :p: Noticed that came up pretty often but only while I was flipping through past years.. haven't done much yet
