2.0 out of 5 stars Good Suppliment 26 Mar 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The only reason that I would recommend this book for A2 is for the exam questions at the bottom of each chapter so you can get an idea of how good you have a grasp on each section.

However, the level of detail is nowhere near what is required for the exam - you need to know the specification inside out and this book doesn't give the depth of knowledge, or even close.

If you can only afford one revision guide, buy a different one for the same course that has more detail if you can. If not, use the textbook and online resources. It will definitely not get you to pass the exam as a revision resource (unless you're aiming for an E.

4.0 out of 5 stars very good 30 Oct 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book came soon after I ordered it. I didn't expect it to be delivered so quickly. The information in the book is not sufficient enough but its a good starting point. You may need to refer to other sources to get higher marks.

4.0 out of 5 stars What I expected. 22 Sep 2013
If you are just buying this book for A2 then don't.
It is great for summarising information and the little questions but t does not provide enough information. It's just a revision guide.
I recommend the OCR Heinemann textbook as a great companion book for this. The only problem with the textbook is that it's more expensive but it is jam packed with information and questions- a definite must for A2 biology.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good explanations 10 Aug 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Good at explaining this but use the textbook for actual answers. Despite being exam board specific the school textbooks have a revision book to work hand in hand

1.0 out of 5 stars Impossible to use 13 Jun 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Though there are a few good points in this book, it seems as though the authors have tried to cram every little detail about everything down your throat, which I found a bit odd in a CGP-book, based on their normally rather relaxed, jokey style.

It also seems that just about every other word is in bold as a key-word, making the use of this book even more confusing.

Steer well clear

It's such a helpful book and summarises all the content of A2 Biology into a couple of pages! - Would recommend to anyone taking A Level Biology! :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good purchase 13 Jan 2013
By katy
Good snapshot stuff, makes good use of graphics and keeps it in simple, manageable chunks. Be aware that this does not cover everything so you shouldn't use this on its own, but its a very good supplement.

5.0 out of 5 stars A2 - Level Biology 21 May 2012
By Pat
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was bought for my daughter who needed to revise smartly.
She began her revision early and was able to utilise this book effectively.
She made flash cards from each chapter that was relevant. The colour coded information
on each subject matter was helpful and easy to follow. She found it helped and felt
at ease when she did the biology paper.
Great resource.
