It's very similar to the practice ones on Scholar as far as I remember. The multiple choice questions on the NAB i sat were a joke - very simple.

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!

but I assume that Scholar's written part is limited then?

thanks anyway (I had already considered scholar, but I was wondering if there any other ones)

The written part was OK - determine the type of bonding in this molecule (yes it did actually use the word molecule which made it a bit of a giveaway), draw the lewis dot structure of this molecule, questions about superconductors and semiconductors (pretty similar to the first question in the 2005 exam), a question about determining the wavelength of light needed to break a mole of bonds. There was also a problem solving question about ligands.

Overall the NAB i sat was pretty easy, I got 19/20 I think.

Last year when I did AH we did the units 2 and 3 NABs on the last week of term before Christmas, then spent ages on the investigation.

We then has TWO AND A HALF weeks to learn unit 1 and get the NAB done, so think yourself lucky. tongue.gif

What does that tell us, the fact that its a molecule?i'm terrible at bonding by the way.
Also what do we need to know about semi/superconductors
any help would be great,
thanks

Have a look at the LOs. They should tell you what you need to know. smile.gif

The word molecule implies covalent bonding.
