Format: Paperback
After finding the a2 biology textbook for edexcel was far too wordy in some places, i thought that a more concise alternative was needed to compliment the textbook.
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

Pros:
- 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.

Cons:
- Lacks some detail on key biology principles,
- Little or no explanations of core practicals,
- Topic 7 is worryingly short,

This book was a life-saver when it came to revising for my unit 5 exam.
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!

I think this book gives an inaccurate picture of what you should actually learn in A levels, it's terribly brief and even if you know all the information in the book, you will never have gotten even a C. Reading this books wasted my precious revision time and also fools me into thinking that this brief information is all I need to get As in the exams. Do not buy this book! If you need a summary/guide to revise you'll be better off with just downloading the free specification and base your revision on it using another textbook (The Salters is okay in my opinion). A2 level Bio involves long explanation questions and this book will not prepare you for it at all. If you need something brief to cram you should just go on some free websites like biology mad or downloading other people's notes from studentroom. DO NOT BUY this book it's really not worth your money at all.

I bought this guide the other week and upon reading through it, am a little dissapointed by its contents. Although it does clear up some loose ends and bits i was'nt too sure about, the guide is very much lacking real depth which surprised me. Having already purchased the AS guide, i was expecting better...

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.

Essential for studying A2 biology!

Especially unit 6 coursework, the pages at the back of this book give you step by step help with the coursework it really helped me a lot.

I found that this revision guide was easy to use. The font is easily read and the diagrams are very useful when explaining how certain things work. The pages are colourful, but not too abstract which provides easy reading and less distraction.

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.
