As a science teacher I bought this to have a copy at home These books are great They re a succinct, easy to follow, and we use them in school for revision or sources to use in class Often the internet can give you too much, if it s the wrong website These include some questions that sum up the chapters which are helpful What I suggest is doing some active revision such as flash cards and mind maps instead of just reading. This CGP Study Guide explains everything students need to know for Key Stage Three Science all fully up to date for the new curriculum from Septemberonwards It s ideal for students working at a higher level it covers what would have been called Levels in the precurriculum Every topic is explained with clear, friendly notes, diagrams and examples, and there are practice questions on most pages to test the crucial skills We ve also included a digital Online Edition of the whole book to read on a PC, Mac or tablet just use the unique code printed at the front of the book to access it For extra practice, a matching KS Science Workbook is also available My daughter has just started her new high school and I have been helping her with her science homework We were relying on Google which was OK but gave advanced answers in some cases and it took ages.We went old skool and bought this book I has, saved so much time It is clear Has pictures and is simple to follow.Very happy Good covers the syllabus and seems to do what you d have thought the teachers might be doing in class According to my 13 yr old, all the important bits are there and I would say this study guide is a great help to parents, too, who may have been expecting the school to provide BOOKSsigh. This review is for the REVISION GUIDE as I did not receive the study guide in the picture The revision guide is a summary of the study guide This is an excellent series, useful as stand alone learning or as accompaniment to in class learning, and is great for homework assignments Lovely colourful illustrations and the option to access online guide also. This revision guide explains concepts really well and the KS3 student this book was for finds it easy to understand. Everything you need to help your child in Science this version is the exact to why they use in school Excellent revision tool just make sure that you buy the most recent publication because there were some changes to the curriculum and the one I bought was an older version This wasnt made clear and tbh I hadnt realised that there were different editions.I have also bought the KS2 Maths and English from this series and they are definitely worth buying.
