    Yeah I do. I can do the calculations... I think but I just dont really know what the calculations are telling me. Its just a case of me having to just sit down and LEARN the concepts. Finished the syllabus in class now, I'm just working through the revision guide to refresh my memory then i'm gonna start exam questions

    I found F334 harder, theres A LOT more new content. F335 is more synoptic

    You just need to know that the part of the molecule that causes the colour is the chromophore. Its probably worth just memorising that definition. I dont think it gets any more difficult than that

    Yeah i think so, Though in the CGP book it talks about the delocalised system and how the larger the system the lower the frequency of electromagnetic radiation absorbed.
    I saw that in the paper as well.

    How much of F335 (the exam) is synoptic and how much is new stuff? I mean is it a 50:50 split or what?
