    Any tips?

    One of the best ways to study, even for tests, is to do past exams. Get acquainted with the style of the questions throughout the year, so you're not cramming in April by trying to do all the past exam papers. Have the fewest regrets possible by studying effectively throughout the year (ie. like the person above me said, don't procrastinate).

    Canadian university choices?

    I had a friend who was near tears most days (before her acceptances) because her predicted total was the same as yours, but she applied and got into Waterloo and McMaster for engineering. Just remember that most Canadian unis will look more heavily at the top 6 average.
  3. I took the exact same IB1 and IB2 courses as you! hehe From my experience, longest to shortest: Chem HL (for the reasons you stated) > Econ HL (because our teachers were extremely lazy during the year.... lots of last minute cramming from the course companion) > Bio SL (lots to memorize) > English HL (wingable if you understand the texts and concepts)

    Medical Literature?

    One which I am familiar with is Bloodletting and Miraculous Cures by Vincent Lam (http://www.google.ca/search?hl=en&client=firefox-a&channel=s&rls=org.mozilla%3Aen-GB%3Aofficial&hs=cKg&q=bloodletting+and+miraculous+cures&btnG=Search&meta=).

    Safari 4 vs. Firefox 3.5 for windows

    Safari is nice to use, but Firefox is by far the best to me. It's not only safe in itself, but you also have the option of downloading add-ons that make your web experience even safer (eg. NoScript or Adblock). You can customize its appearance and functionality in a myriad of ways.

    Good Non-Fiction Reads?

    I recommend A Briefer History of Time by Stephen Hawking. It's basically a dumbed-down version of the classic A Brief History of Time. (It also talks about wormholes!) Also, try Dawkin's books, like his most famous, The God Delusion. The Blind Watchmaker also seems very interesting.

    Commonly Misspelled Words

    Two which annoy me a lot: 1) Definitely being spelled definately or definitly. 2) This is "more easier" instead of "easier".
  10. I did mean the HI - sorry about the ambiguity. Thank you for your answers!
  11. Are quotes by historians part of the word count of an HI? Thanks! Hopefully I'm allowed to create a topic like this.
