I'm in the process of raking through my old computer for my revision notes to be added to the wiki. I have various notes from SG and Higher Physics, Higher Modern Studies, SG Chemistry, SG and Higher Computing and bits from here and there in other subjects (inc. the rest of my Higher Geography notes).

Just a heads up, and also a request that if anyone else has similar stuff, it would be really appreciated if you could put them up there, especially for other subjects that aren't covered yet. Could end up being a really excellent resource

I did it last year and never really found any. We used Scholar at school though and it's really good, only problem is I think you have to get a password from school. Best idea is to get books.
