I do realise that the whole point of it is just a basic outline of things that you should know, but little bits of detail that are necessary in order to acquire the best marks in the exam have been missed out.
On the plus side, the practise questions are great and the check lists are very helpful.
I would have preferred a book which had a little more depth, this guide is only 104 pages long!
All in all get it but don't expect wonders
- Clear presentation and layout,
- Concise and straight to the point,
- Covers a lot of the specification and basics,
- Good for the evening before an exam,
- Good pricing,
- Removes unnessecary information which is given to you in the textbook.
- Lacks some detail on key biology principles,
- Little or no explanations of core practicals,
- Topic 7 is worryingly short,
I haven't got the greatest attention span and so revising can sometimes be hard and frustrating. This is where this great book comes in!
Every word on every page is useful, unlike the textbook which has lots and lots of pointless knowledge, which can sometimes be hard to wade through to find key principles.
So this book is great at teaching you the key principles and exactly what they are looking for when asking questions about each topic (this is great because in biology exams sometimes it can be hard to know exactly what they are asking for).
The only thing it is lacking is some smaller details of the biological principles, the more in-depth points of some of the topics (but not anything central or key).
Still made me feel ready for the exam and got me through the exam spectacularly!
There are practice exam questions at the end of each unit, which is great for trying out what you have revised.
My one complaint is that the paragraphs do sometimes get a bit wordy, and perhaps bullet points would be more useful in some cases.
If you want something to touch up certain areas, buy it. If you're looking for a step-by-step run through of VITAL parts of the course, i would suggest reading through the main textbook (Orange) for the course, or even purchasing the Edexcel A2 Biology textbook (Green)which is very detailed and infinitely more helpful.

Excellent service quick delivery also product is very good quality.--ThanksPublished 3 months ago by Isdani
Really simple explanations of all the topics, phrased excellently, not tedious to read. Suitable for an overall revision of the topics not to aid in initially learning the subject.Published 5 months ago by Sian Wright
