I have my NABS for units 2 and 3 the first week back after xmas.

So I can't really help you, try looking at the example in Scholar perhaps.

Why don't you tell us what it was like after you have sat it:)

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you
But make allowance for their doubting too,
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And--which is more--you'll be a Man, my son!

if you revise the notes then you should pass

I wouldn't call that cheating... more using all of your resources! it's chemistry, I mean c'mon we need all the help we can get!

How was the NAB anyway? Harder than Unit 1? Loads of calculations?
The race is long, and in the end it's only with yourself.

I hardly think asking what topics were going to come up would be called cheating. that is rather patronising as others need help and i hardly think it would effect you too much for you to spread some of your undoubted superiority with the rest of us mere mortals!

My unit 3 NAB is on the 10th and my unit 2 NAB is on the 11th, so I will be a day too late to tell you anything Douglas. On the other hand if anyone want any advice about either NAB after I have done them then just ask.

If you can be bothered can you tell us about the unit 2 NAB after you have sat it Douglas? smile.gif

Hey, how was the unit 2 NAB douglas?

I did my unit 3 NAB today and it went OK I think.

There were questions about amines, pharmacophores, agonists, electrophilic substitution, nucleophilic substitution, addition, hydrolysis, oxidation, reduction, infra red spectroscopy, the functions of the different parts of the mass spectrometer, NMR, mass spectrometry, alkylation of benzene and other general problem solving questions.

That probably isn't too much help to anyone but I thought I would share it with you anyway.

I have my unit 2 NAB tomorrow, anyone feel like sharing their experience of it?

Went not too bad. Got really confused on one question about ionic product of water. The multiple choice section was the part i fornd most difficult. Sorry this is so vague will post another reply when i get my score back later.

Have you done all NAB's now then werlop?

Hey, I did the unit 2 NAB today and it was pretty easy.

There was stuff about entropy, equilibrium, ph of a weak acid, bond enthalpies, free energy, oxidation and reduction, cells and other unit 2 stuff.

I've only done the unit 2 and 3 NABs so far. We are going to do the investigation then go back and do unit 1. Apparently it is the easiest unit and by doing unit 2 and 3 we have covered some of the stuff from 1 already, e.g. orbital theory.

I'm gonna fail chemistry so badly sad.gif Haven't sat the Unit 2 NAB yet but I doubt I'll be able to pass it.

Well done on the 27/30 Werlop, that's amazing.
