    Hello Salters Students, I have found another brilliant online Salters resource http://www.docbrown.info/page19/saltersASchemistry.htm

    I must warn you that it is incomplete, however it covers pretty much everything. Enjoy!

    Hello Salters Students! Not a fan of online Chemistry.
    Well then check this out: http://www.cgpbooks.co.uk/pages/pageFlip.asp?c=CRBR52

    CGP have provided a revision and practice guide for the OCR Salters course. I recently purchased one and after a thorough readthrough, I must admit that it is quite brilliant!

    Word of warning: I wouldn't rely on this book entirely. Use Chemical Ideas for some parts.

    Chemguide helps a lot as well.

    The following helps as well:

    As mentioned by krisshP earlier, the follow sites are brilliant:

    http://www.knockhardy.org.uk/sci.htm - collections of highly detailed notes and powerpoints for A Level Students.

    http://www.youtube.com/user/bradyexplains - a fantastic series of videos explaining those difficult Chemistry topics in an understandable way.

    I think it's best we stick to OCR Salters stuff. We don't want to drift off the syllabus.

    For those of you who like to revise from Chemical Ideas, you've probably already downloaded the mark scheme from the Internet.

    However, this is a more updated and accurate mark scheme where the questions correspond to the answers and all exercises are covered. Check it out here: http://boswellsgmt.wikispaces.com/CHEMICAL+IDEAS

    Cannot get my head around Emission and absorption spectrums.
    Just remember that...

    -Electrons absorb energy and raised to higher electronic energy levels (1)
    -Electrons drop back to ground state, losing energy as light (1)
    -Energy levels quantized (1); drops between specific energy levels are given by Planck's equation, E = hv (1)
    -Each set represent drops to different lower electronic energy levels (1) + include named example such as Lyman/Balmer series.

    -Electrons absorb energy and raised to higher electronic energy levels
    -This produces lines that form an absorption spectra consisting of black lines on a coloured background
    -Energy levels quantized; differences between specific energy levels are given by Planck's equation, E = hv
    -Each set represent rises to different higher electronic energy levels
