POSS. 15.0 10.0 10.0 15.0 50.0 The average is 31 points or 62%. We aim for 65% tests (or better) and we are close to the goal. Now that you know better what to expect, you might be doing better in future. You were doing well in Q1 and Q2 which were minor variations of older themes, you also did OK on the spectrum prediction Q3. And Q4 was the real trouble; an average of 4 out of 15. Formamide is featured in the Visualization Center for IR and you need to be looking at those. The natural thing to do then is to learn about its IR spectrum by looking it up in the SDBS database (or at many other places). Make sure you are putting in the hours. The next test will be for 100 points and it will cover all the chapters on alcohol chemistry. Best, RG.
