Usually the handbook you get from your school is OK. Try to find out what books the professor uses and buy them in advance (in sale period for example)

dude my hands have melted due to severe exizima. im dyslexic and find writing extremely difficult. and grammar has always been hard for me.  sorry i will have to make more effort, half the reason i joined the forum was to also improve my writing skills.  cheers for the correction, keep it up i might be able tio write some day

During my A levels I found newbielink:http://www.chemguide.co.uk [nonactive] to be the best, in all honesty. It's much better written and clearer than most textbooks!
