Transition metals

Does anyone have a chemistry resource that breaks down transition metals ( AQA A-level ) in a really simple way for dummies? Even the CGP is overwhelming me atm. Thanks!

Hi we meet again :biggrin:

I recommend Chem revise notes as I personally found them very useful :smile:

Yep, thanks so much, I just find their notes a bit heavy. Do you know any notes for literal dummies? ( like me lol :biggrin: )

I don't do aqa but YouTube might be a good idea?? I know for my (obscure) exam board allery chemistry has some great videos - make sure it's the right level and exam board tho!!

i feel like transition metals is the hardest topic in A2 after aqa released the advanced information, if your struggling with it at this point, id say dedicate a decent amount of time towards, practising exam style questions, memorising all the equations for redox titrations (Fe & c2o4 with MnO4)

are you guys focusing on the other non advanced info topics or is there no point my teachers haven't said much for chemistry
chemguide usually gives some good explanations
