If your system were in use, I maybe would have understood Chemistry. Actually, I understood the lessons until we were dealing with redox reactions. I failed with a shameful F- (0/15 points however) when we were dealing with alcanes. Alcanes, alcenes, alcines, (alcones, alcunes, alcänes, alcönes, alkünes -- what the hell?) ... alcanales, alcoholes, ... it was potassiumcyanide to my brain ... I got rid of Chemistry lessons for this and next year as fast as possible because I don't need them to pass my A-Level exams! But now I must go on with Biology and Computer Sciences to fill the holes of Chemistry and Physics. Carsten
