    Read your revision guide or textbook. Make sure you know and understand the concepts.
    If you have time you could do the june 2012 paper as a mock 1/2 days before the exam.

    I have actually made 40 pages of written notes, just not concise enough and nothings sticking in my head. Maybe you could scan them? Thanks anyway

    electron density maps just show where the highest electron density is.

    In ionic compounds between the ions and density is zero (spaces between ions) because they are not sharing electrons. The bonding electrons have moved from one atom to another e.g. from the sodium to the chloride.

    In covalently bonded molecules there is a high electron density between the two atoms hence sharing electrons and the covalent bond.

    Hope this helped
