    is anyone finding the paper 3 really impossible?
    how are u spposed to revise? it seems to just contain random parts of unit 1,2 and some practical work, does anyone have a specification for it?

    is there a good summary of all the practical tests on any text book or websites??? those green edexcel books are the crappiest ever

    also are the organic and inorganic practical tests in paper 3 or paper 2

    are you joking?! They're ****ing brilliant. The green books got me A grades in my mock C2 and C3B paper.

    http://www.edexcel.org.uk/VirtualContent/25048.pdf
    page 34 of 91 is the spec for C3B paper.

    C3B paper is actually quite easy. You always get planning bit which is easy, cation/anion tests which is again quite easy, calculations, tests on compounds, heating under reflux/distillation and a bit of organic theory and that's about it. Just do all the past papers and you'll be sorted.

    I agree with Widowmaker, paper C3B is easy although i havent solved the past papers or sat the exam yet but i had an overview of this paper and i think everyone should be able to do after reading the Nelson or any other chemistry book thoroughly...
    Personally i like the Longman As n A level chemistry book, its too thick but its worth your money n if you really go through it you can get an A..

    For paper C3B note down all the tests n common reactions as for those of haloalkanes, halide ions, etc n go through it along with the past papers, it shouldnt be too difficult...And anyways you got alot of time before this paper so worry about the practicals for the time being drop C3B worries...

    what? its just me who finds it the hardest thing out of all the AS exams then??? maybe its just that things like industrially producing polydichlorofluorbromoalke-di-ol at 569celsius 298 atm with hcl +reflux just wont stick in my mind, and theres no concise set of notes which include all relevant info, they r all scattered randomly in the txtbk , ughraahh :mad:

    C2 is much harder than C3B.
    With C3B, even if the organic chemistry is impossible you can make up for it on calculations,planning section - how to titrate, calculate enthalpy of neutralisation/formation/combustion etc.
