I would say it rarely ever goes above Zumdahl level if at all. The only instances I have ever seen it go above would be at MIT and the regionals I went to 2 years ago (test written by chem camper).For people who have done this event before, would you say that it goes above an AP Chemistry/Zumdahl level?
I don't know if it's worth it to read a Physical Chem book for Gases/Thermodynamics if the actual test won't be above my Zumdahl textbook. Would it be more efficient to practice the questions in Zumdahl or read Atkins Physical Chem for more information?
i'm probably going to read atkins anyway for chemistry olympiad but that would be after invitationals.
All of us aren't competent in every event. If you have an answer, feel free to contribute it. The site is only active if people keep it active.Can someone answer ic3kreem's question? I'm also wondering but no one has replied in four days...
What's the point of this site?
An AP text should be sufficient. If you want to look into textbooks that delve deeper into this year's topics, then you can feel free, but I think for the majority of teams, an AP text is fine.Does anyone know of any other resources to study besides an AP Chem textbook like Zumdahl/Atkins?
