    all contents in the syllabus + many

    Hi,

    Do I use “many” correctly?


    Sentence:
    Before the exam period, we found that we couldn’t memorize all the contents in the syllabus, because there were too many.

    I would like to convey:
    There were/are too many contents in my previous exams.


    Will reader think therer were too many contents or too many syllabus?

    Thanks

    Re: all contents in the syllabus + many

    No, you need content and much not many. You can't count content.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
