    I did Methods of Analysis and Detection. (which covers the spectroscopy stuff but in more depth and other stuff too, of course! lol) It's quite straightforward in that I could understand it and easily do the textbook questions and the past exam questions but, lol, when it came to the exam this summer, I found it quite hard. :confused: I was like damn. lol I think the bad thing with MOAAD is that it's a relatively new topic so there weren't vast numbers of past papers we could actually look at. 3/4 papers was certainly limited, I thought. lol.

    Biochem was what everyone else did, because they were also biologists so it made sense to do it.

    I did Methods of Analysis and Detection too. I thought the topic was pretty good actually, as was the exam. I felt it went well. I think its a good module to do because you can get 8 marks on the easiest thing, which is looking at nmr, IR and mass spec's and working out what the compound is. It is covered in Chains, Rings and Spec so there is nothing really difficult at all about it.

    I hate biochem so I'm glad we don't do that at my school! Did some in Biology AS and it was awful!

    I did environmental chemistry. I never would have chosen it because it doesn't interest me in the slightest. I didn't have a choice though.
