This is because the smaller cation has a higher positive charge, as such the electron pull is much stronger.

I believe Professor said that we should just have an idea of electronegativity, but not necessarily the exact values. However a basic rule is the farther elements are from each other on the periodic table, the more the electronegative difference is.

Free moving atoms tend to be more unstable because they have a higher potential energy. As such, bound atoms are more stable because their potential energy is lower.

Personally, I like reading the textbook to view the example problems. However, I feel that I understood the concepts better watching Professor Lavelle's modules and KhanAcademy.

I would definitely recommend quizlet for conceptual questions. For practical questions I would recommend khanacademy and chemwiki.
