May 2010 Chemistry

<p>Who else is taking it? Let's use this thread over the next few days to discuss the exam.</p>

<p>I will be taking it.</p>

<p>does anyone know if there are more free sparknotes tests online for chem? *in addition to the 3 in the book....)</p>

<p>Silverturtle, what level have you studied Chemistry at (AP, Honors, etc)?</p>

<p>I'm probably most nervous for this test out of the subject tests I'm taking tomorrow</p>

<p>I am not looking forward to this...</p>

<p>I'm in AP Chemistry.</p>

<p>Same here. We are currently in review mode for the AP exam, so I hope the SAT II seems easy to me. :p</p>

<p>I'm quite scared for this one. My Chemistry teacher is the most incompetent teacher I've ever had. I'm in IB SL Chemistry.</p>

<p>Has anyone taken the first test from the Princeton Review book? I just finished it and was surprised by its difficulty. I was hoping for an 800, but my raw score was an insufficient 70.25/85.</p>

<p>^ I did. I didn't do so hot, either; got about high 600s/low 700s on that one. First PR test aside, I thought the 3rd PR test was ridiculously hard.</p>

<p>Well, I hope tomorrow's test is easier than that test was because I won't be doing any more preparation tonight.</p>

<p>Ha, I just realized that the test I took was the first Barron's test, not the first Princeton Review test.</p>

<p>This was a tricky test.</p>

<p>I was honestly expecting the worst, but it was definitely not as bad as I thought it would be.</p>

<p>I'm pretty sure I got the ammonia dissolved in water question wrong. I said "true" that it was very soluble in water but "false" for the H-bond explanation. But apparently it is because of H-bonds. Any other questions you guys are unsure of?</p>

<p>No discussion of questions yet.</p>

<p>EDIT: Let the discussions begin!</p>

<p>Ethereality3 - I said T and F for that one, too.... :/</p>

<p>I did, soooo bad it's ridiculous. I feel like canceling my scores, but I wanna know exactly what I got. Is it bad for me to take it again June?</p>

<p>^ There's Score choice, so you can see what you get, and if you don't do well, just don't send that one to colleges. I'm retaking in June regardless of what I get this time around.</p>

<p>Skipped 3, guessed on 4....just to be safe I'm overestimating it at 12 wrong, which means a raw score of 70 and a scaled score of about 740...so I guess that's alright, considering I've never taken AP chem.</p>
