Licensed for free distribution under the GFDL I  The Student’s Guide to HSC Chemistry About the Guide The Student’s Guide to HSC Chemistry is a brand new form of study guide, acknowledging thedeficiencies of the way existing resources are presented to students while simultaneously accentuatingtheir strengths. All of this is done in a way which closely mirrors the way many students alreadyorganise their own notes a method adopted for several reasons. Whilst textbooks and various otherresources may have been compiled according to their own structure for time immemorial, it has beennoticed that time and time again students turn to a syllabus dotpoint format when constructing theirown notes. It is my belief that this is an extremely effective way, organising the students thoughts ina comprehensive approach which includes all necessary details while omitting yet other details whichare really quite superfluous to scoring full marks in an exam.This guide offers a means of revision, and in doing so must be distinguished from a textbook. Asyllabus is provided by the Board of Studies for every course, detailing precisely which areas areexaminable and what is expected of students. As stated above, the unique structure of this guideallows for a definitive treatment of each dotpoint, detailing exactly what must be learnt to achievethe highest possible marks, while offering the benefit of streamlining all information such that thestudent is far less likely to feel overwhelmed with information. At the very least, it provides a usefuloverview for introductory and/or review purposes so as to make Chemistry that much simpler.By the very same token, it must be stressed that this guide is in itself simply a means of revision.While I have no doubt it is sufficient to gain a student a respectable mark by itself, if you truly wantto achieve your highest potential mark, I strongly urge you to turn to the myriad of resources aroundyou. Where possible, dotpoints are expanded upon even at the sake of conciseness simply so thatthe point of a dotpoint appears that much more logical. However, how a student learns a conceptis highly dependant upon how they personally view the concept, and as such, it may be that onestudent needs to read up about Concept A in Textbook X yet another student may need to readup about Concept B in Textbook Y. These resources should not be overlooked in the blind belief that simply accepting a fact to be true is sufficient. Textbooks, teachers, internet sites, and mostimportantly your fellow peers will form the crux of these resources.At the end of the day, if you get one thing from this guide, let it be the fact that most (I am reluctantto say every, but most) results can be reached through a relatively logical process. If you can reasona result out step-by-step, then you will have no difficulty in expanding upon it come exam time asyou not only know it, you understand  the concept. In utilising this guide alongside other resources,I have no doubt that this learning process will be greatly simplified.All that then remains to be said is best of luck!
