Just wondering if anyone would give any revision notes or tips for the exams? ;D

Well, obviously you know about making notes but I tend to do mine from the text book with reference to my class notes rather than the other way around. Then when I get closer to the exam I make index cards with more condensed notes on.
But to remember longer processes and things I find it really helpful to make up funny/ weird stories and stuff, my current favorite:
If you BREAK IN (break bonds, put energy in) you go to prison which is the END (ENDothermic reaction) of your life, which is POSITIVE (postivie enthalpy change) for the rest of us, and in prison you eat COLD (endothermic reactions feel cold) porridge.
If you MAKE OUT (make bonds, energy is given out) with you're HOT (endothermic reactions feel hot) EX-boyfriend (exothermic reaction) that's NEGATIVE (negative enthalpy change).
I know it's weird but it's how I remember things. I hope it helps, or at least makes you laugh.
