    Hello!

    I'm in the exact same boat as you. I don't know what year you're in/ qualification you're studying so I'll just put what I can.

    I'm currently in Year 12 and the first topic we started on with one of my teachers is Amount of Substance, which I'm being assessed on on Monday I recently bought a book called Chemistry Calculation by a professor JimClark. It's a hefty book (at a hefty price) but it looks really well laid out with plenty of tips and info and practise questions etc. It has a lot of good reviews. He also has a website you could try called Chemguide which again looks really good and I've heard a lot of good things about. Make sure to do practise questions to get to grips with the style of questions you will get in an exam. Particularly at A Level, they're a whole different ball game. It's all about practise and learning what examiners look for. Don't forget, your subject teacher is your most valuable resource! Never be afraid to ask for more help, because at the end of the day they just want you to do the best you can, and will be happy to stay back ten minutes or so to go over questions with you.

    Good luck, we'll both get through this chem calc block haha! If you need anything else don't hesitate to send me a message!

    I think the book is actually meant to be tailored more to ocr! (Although I could be wrong haha). I'm studying the AQA spec. I'm sorry but I'm not sure what your last question is saying
