    IMPORTANT
    The syllabus for CIE Chemistry has changed starting from 2016 and I have decided to stop updating my notes since I have already completed the examination. I no longer recommend anyone to use my notes as the main material for your exam preparation as it does not reflect the requirement as stated in the latest syllabus.

    Thank you for your support.





    Hi! I've decided to share the notes that I made for AS Chemistry so that everyone can benefit. I'm currently still working on it, I will upload more and more chapters as time goes on. So, please keep yourself updated(if you wanna!).

    About the sources:
    1) Well, I basically just compiled information from various sources(webs and books) and
    arranged it according to CIE exam specification. Most of the texts and pictures/diagrams
    came from the Internet, I do not own any of them.
    2) I've referred to many sources so it's not possible for me to list them all. However, I do want
    to list some major ones:
    i. Chemguide: http://www.chemguide.co.uk/index.html#top
    ii. Cambridge International AS/A Level Chemistry Coursebook
    iii. Step-by-step A-Level Study Guide Chemistry
    iv. 2015 syallabus for Cambridge International AS/A Level Chemistry 9701

    I have decided to exclude most calculation examples, so you should find another source to practice the calculations, which are very essential indeed. My aim of making these notes is to provide you a REVISION source. If you are first time learning a topic, learn it from your teacher or the excellent Chemguide website(link provided above). After you have mastered the topic, read my notes to reinforce the main points.

    And finally...
    If you found any mistakes in my notes, do let me know. Even if it's a spelling error, I am willing to correct it.
