For me it was bonding and energetics. I watched allery chem on yt and did some extra reading and notes. I did questions from the textbook and PMT(sometimes the cgp revision guide). I usually did this as we went along in class so I understood it properly there and then. Now I dont see myself having to learn the content - I just read over my notes and do practice exam questions and papers

Organic
Reaction mechanisms

Inorganic
Shapes of complex ions

Physical
I didn't find anything particularly difficult in terms of content in this area, but sometimes the exam-questions were weirdly-worded.



Of course, you may end up finding the above topics pretty simple but other topics difficult. Are you doing A-Level Chemistry?

Mine was the questions to titrations. Not the titration itself to grasp the principle was so tough, but the mathematical problems to it. Some of them still blow my mind till this day!

5hyl33n I wonder what reaction mechanisms you struggled in particular. There are so many.

I hated mechanisms in general. As you mentioned, there are so many! :laugh:

The worst one for me was nucleophilic addition. I just couldn't remember it!

Nucleophilic addition seems to be easy: a molecule is added to the nucleus (C-atom) and a proton (H+-ion) is added to an Q-atom or OH-group. The orbitals at the beginning of AS level are even tougher to grasp, but that is just my opinion.
