Hey all, I know this plan probably fall through in less than a couple of days, but I'm attempting it nonetheless. Share your thoughts, strengths, and weaknesses, or ask for help in this appointed commonplace, in preparation for the coming test. I'll start with this query:
How reflective are the practice tests in the Barrons and Kaplan books of the actual exams? From what I hear, they are slightly more difficult, thus the guarantee of score improvement. I'm pulling raw scores around 80 for the Chemistry, and 48 for math, so if the books are at least on par with the exams, I guess I'm fine. thanx

I suck at organic chemistry and laboratory because we never went over that in class. Not to mention I have no idea what color anything is.

can anyone suggest some good free tutorial on the net for SAT-II - writing, math IIC and Chemistry???

I am taking writing, chemistry and math IIC. I took practice tests (Princeton Review) and got 770 in chemistry and 730 in math IIC. Heres about all I know about organic chemistry:
Suffixes: (alphabetic order, decreasing by 2 hydrogens)
meth- :1 Carbon
eth- :2 Carbon
prop- :3 Carbon etc...
hept: 7 Carbons
Transition metals have color, iodine turns purple, copper turns blue, alkine metals have color (I think?). If anyone can come up with colors that specific elements turn, it would be nice.

hey, im bored doing nothing in school now
i'm taking the sat ii in chem in june, i feel pretty confident but i'll ask what others have asked, although they've gotten no responses: has anyone found any free practice tests or questions for the chem test online? thats bout all i have to say really, plus jason: try and study the special types of organic molecules (alcohols, aldehydes, etc.)... im not good at them either b/c we didnt really study them much in school... but they have a chapter in all the prep books so just study from them...

what about the lab questions? There are questions in practice tests with a diagram of a lab experiment with nothing labeled and it asks what this experiment is trying to find. The only way to know that is if I knew that exact lab setup from somewhere.

Tough luck Jason.........look around on the net...I'm sure there are a lot of sites where you can see the apparatus pics and things like that.Just google it......if you get anything good post it here.
