    HI.
    Just a question to anyone doing this exam, how much of the content of the story-lines text book is actually needed, seems like there is a lot of waffle not really related to chemistry
    Thanks

    Its a good idea to read through every chapter once as questions in the exam may be based on some of the ideas. For example at A2 much of the material on DNA can be asked which isn't necessarily included in chemical ideas. If you've read the story lines you may understand the context the questions better. I learnt from not reading it for AS and so didn't do as well as I wanted to.

    I guess ill make some notes on each chapter then, it really is a drag to read though.
