When is delta H in kJ/mol or just kJ? (because the book uses both units)

I think my ta said they would not take off points for either, but we should use kj/mol

I would just look at the units in your equation that you are trying to solve and see if the moles cancel out. If not, then delta H is kJ/mol. If the moles cancel out, then delta H is kJ.
