                  I don't remember doing any calculations like that for the re-reg exam? Can you give us an actual example question?

                    I studied all these at A level. Knowledge was assumed at uni.

                      Would it be wrong to give worked examples to the calculation questions in this

                        No Jeff it wouldn't be wrong, but I thought that as it was Azz who has problems the least he could do is show us an example of the questions he cannot do!

                        Johnep is correct in that moles, molecular masses, atomic weights etc were covered at A level, and used in the degree, but I didn't think you had them in the pre-reg exams.

                        All the calculations I did were simple ones - how much do you need to of solution X to get 75mls of 5% solution Y - stuff like that. I can't remember having to work out for example the concentration of a solution from a titration or any questions of that type which would need the understanding of molecular solutions etc.

                        We could pick a question at random, and have a go for our own revision if thats what you want, and I guess that would help people in general.

                        Do we want to answer specific questions to help individuals, or do some examples to attempt to help the masses?

                        What do you all want?

                          Examples for the masses like me. I have found dispensers who have had trouble with hospital scripts saying 1/52, 7/7 etc

                              I guess it's possible that's the problem, but it would help if we knew.
