Doc Browns Chemistry Clinic
A growing non-commercial general help and revision site for UK GCSE, AS and A2 CHEMISTRY and USA/Canada grades 9-12.  Revision notes, multiple choice tests, structured questions, graphics and extensive links to useful and interesting CHEMISTRY sites. One site speciallity is the structure and naming of organic compounds. The site is regularly added to and has now just been recognised by NGFL, Becta/Ferl link page and the BBC secondary schools science links page in the UK.
www.wpbschoolhouse.btinternet.co.uk/page02/page02.htm  is a general LINKS PAGE with a sub-page of what I consider the top 20 PERIODIC TABLE sites.
www.wpbschoolhouse.btinternet.co.uk/page23/page23.htm   is the page to explore when you have finished the tedious revision!
Site Speciallity: I've been developing a whole series of organic structure recognition and naming tests. The tests work on a random selection of 10 Q's from a data base of 40-140 molecules.  eg see www.wpbschoolhouse.btinternet.co.uk/page14/page14.htm  (multiple choice) and
www.wpbschoolhouse.btinternet.co.uk/page15/page15.htm  (type in name)
The aromatic naming tests are in the pipeline!
