You use much too in front of an adjective to say that something cannot be done or achieved because someone or something has too much of a quality. In sentences like these you put much in front of too, not after it:
The bedrooms were (much) too cold.
In positive sentences, don't use much without very. Don't say, for example, ‘I enjoyed it much’ or ‘We much agree’
However, the OALD offers examples such as I am very much aware of the fact that I'm not much good at tennis.
Aren't the two authorities contradictory?
