psets + other course materials

<p>i'm trying to find the psets for 5.111 but i can only find psets 1-3...
does anyone know if these mit 'bibles' are available online or if there's any other way to find course materials?</p>

<p>thanks in advance!</p>

<ol>
<li>A 'bible' is not a collection of psets...it is a collection of psets with answers.</li>
<li>If they're not on OCW and not trivially Googleable, you will probably have to ask an actual student</li>
<li>I assume you're trying to ASE out of 5.111 - they give you a list of problems to do from the suggested book, I recommend that you work on those.</li>
</ol>

<p>I actually think the list of problems from the book is terrible. The book for 5.111 does not reflect at all the difficulty of the exam. It is long, convoluted and contains very shallow information. Most of my friends and I learnt from the lecture notes, so try to find those. I also find it helpful to practice using Caltech's chem psets (which are slightly harder, but reflect more the depth of knowledge expected of you)</p>

<p>Welcome</a> to the Ch 1 Zone!</p>

<p>so i just found the 5.111 psets. do you guys think the psets accurately reflect the difficulty of the ase? or should i still do the caltech ones?
thanks!</p>

<p>The Caltech ones will be more reflective of 5.112, and the ASE, which, IMO, is way harder than the class itself.</p>

<p>In general, the more you know, the better. If you can find an inorganic chem book for free (borrow?...), I would advise you try to read their explanations of molecular orbitals, and ligand field theory, just to get a better understanding. The explanations in Atkins are lame.</p>
