I've used the Heinemann chemistry textbook all year round and just starting using another book to revise.
In this are some terms that were not mentioned in my primary textbook.

Such as "organo-metallic" compounds. Do I need to remember things like this for next year? I'm finding it confusing in deciding what information is suitable for retaining or not.

If the information isnt in both textbooks it most probably wouldnt have been in the syllabus right?

Very good inference to make. For example, I know that "proteins as markers for disease" which is a part of the course cannot be about specific diseases, because the major textbooks reference different diseases. Instead, it's just the general idea behind that concept being examined.

No, you don't really need to know about "organo-metallic compounds", but you will probably run into a few. For example: CH3COO-Na is an organo-metallic compound. The acetate ion (CH3COO-) is organic, and the Na+ is metallic.

That's all it is really.
