  1.  If you are taking AP Chemistry 12 next year,  you will keep the textbook “Chemistry the Central Science” by Brown and LeMay and the solutions book to the exercise in the textbook.  If you don’t have a copy of the textbook, you can try to find it online or in a public library.
  2. Your summer assignment will consist of four main things: a) chapter 25 on organic chemistry, b) ch13 on solutions and colligative properties, c) photoelectron spectroscopy (PES) and d) review of previous chapters.  See instructions here:
