go to www.chemguide.co.uk and print out the whole site

but to be frank, i could not find one book (and i have seen many) that was decent enough for me to learn chemistry from scratch.

i use a big book (out of print now) called Chemistry in Action by Freemantle which is brilliant! it was actually aimed at A-level students but some of it's material is now beyond A-level syllabus which makes it good for learning since you get more insight into things..

actually there is only about 150-200 reactions you need to know for edexcel alevel chem (thats just an estimate)....which aint alot....considering group 3 and period 4 take up about 52

chemistry in context is really good - ive had it for ages but the size and dauntingness put me off it, but just started using it and its great at exaplining aspects of chemo, phillip allen is also good - gives all the basics well, specific for the course, chem guide is also amazing!!
