Descriptive Inorganic Chemistry Exams?
« on: March 30, 2014, 01:29:57 AM »
Does anybody have any descriptive inorganic chemistry exams that they can share with me? Or perhaps a link to a website with inorganic chemistry exams?

This Monday, I'm going to be tested on Hydrogen, Group 1, Group 2, and Group 13. My professor isn't handing out a practice exam, so I just want to answer some questions to make sure I have a solid grasp on the material.

So you plan to spend Sunday learning exam questions and answers?

My advice is to learn the material which has been set and you will be able to answer the questions. It's like a form of cheating if you have the information in your head.

"cheating" ???

I'm not planning to learn exam questions; if the exams come from a different school, they will be different from the ones my professor will ask.

Sorry, you misunderstood me, I meant no disrespect. I was an academic for many years and people judge their understanding by working through old exam papers.

Learning the information and avoiding the bias from other profs exam papers will get you a better result.

I always considered that revising the topic fully is a special type of cheating :)


Each academic has their own style of writing questions. I could give you a few but they would be no help to you.
