The list of topics covered includes more than I intended to select. The 'ctrl select' only allowed selecting all items in sequence, not picking and choosing.

List should be:

Electronic spectroscopy

Electronic structure

Group theory & applications

Materials chemistry

Molecular structure


Periodic trends

Physical methods / analytical techniques

Physical properties

Solids & solid state chemistry

Hi Lauren. Thanks for your contribution. It is a little tricky dealing with the topics. You can select individual ones by holding down the ctrl (not sure of the mac equivalent) when you are selecting the topics. I made the changes while reviewing things.
