Nomenclature?

Will we have to know nomenclature (names of chemicals and formulas for chemicals) for the quizzes/midterms/finals? If so, which ones should we study? As many as we can? Thanks for the help.

I was wondering the same thing! However, when I was working in my workbook on the Quiz 1 Prep Fall 2014 quiz, problem number 1 says "How many grams of ammonium chloride..." without giving us the chemical formula for the compound. However, no names of polyatomic or other ions are provided on the equation and periodic table sheet. In that respect, I think it's safe to assume that we should be familiar with basic compound names. I don't think we will be given a question specifically to test nomenclature, but for a question like number 1 on the practice quiz, we should know how to name it. The course reader and textbook (fundamentals) has some information on nomenclature that's helpful.
