I have not bought the year 2 book (orange and black book new spec) and I dont want to spend the money buying the book so can I just use the chemguide version?
Is chemguide and good substitute textbook?
I will use this along side my school Chemistry notes.
I am doing my a levels this June

Chemguide is an excellent resource for learning chemistry.

OCR endorsed text books are an excellent resource for learning OCR chemistry.

There are differences between the exam boards that chemguide will not help you with.

If you are careful in your marking of past papers to ensure that you are using the language that OCR expect, then you can access all the marks on the exams.

Yes, I endorse this. Accurate use of the mark scheme, as we examiners would do, is crucial if candidates want to get a realistic idea of their performance. Too often candidates think 'yeah, I sort of said that' and give themselves the mark in a practice paper where, in real life, the mark would not be given due to the absence of specific term, or the list principle or something like that.
