Science questions not covered in Chem 14A and 14B. Try to limit questions to chemistry (inorganic chemistry, physical chemistry, organic chemistry, biophysical chemistry, biochemistry, materials science, environmental chemistry).

Hi! I am assuming since nomenclature is a part of most of the problems in the book, we are expected to know it. Although, I don't think Dr. Lavelle has specifically addressed it yet. I do think it's important to know the polyatomic ions though because they are a strong foundation for most problems!
Hi! In one of Dr. Lavelle's office hours I believe he said that the formulas for the polyatomic ions will be given to us on the tests (correct me if I'm wrong). But I think having a few of the basic ones memorized would be wise because he might expect us to know those! And we will be expected to know them in higher level chemistry classes.
Hi! Like Natalie said above, I think Dr. Lavelle said he would give us the formulas since he wants us to understand the concept rather than just simply memorizing the numbers. However, it never hurts to know the basic ones.

Based on the textbook problems, I've seen bromate (BrO3), Nitrate (NO3), Bicarbonate (HCO3), and Sulfate (SO4) pop up a lot. So I think those would be a safe bet to try and understand/memorize.
