Within a week, I need to master crystallography, with emphasis on X-ray crystallography, because my 4th year biochem final exam will be heavily based on crystallography. The exam will test concepts as well as applications like doing some simple calculations involving space groups, coordinates, etc. Will it be possible to master the topic within that time frame? My plan is to read the book "X-ray crystallography made crystal clear" twice while taking notes. But I found that some pages are hard to understand due to heavy mathematics. For someone like me with only Calculus 1 and 2 background, what other better, more easily-accessible resources or webpages are there to help you master crystallography? Thanks.
