5.0 out of 5 stars GCSE Biology for AQA 27 Sep 2013
By Amazon Customer TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is really good and comprehensive title that really caters to the needs of today's student. I got this for my nephew and fits with his exam board and criteria for his course. He has found text relatively easy to follow and likes the different types of Q and A that test his understanding of any given topic. The attention to detail in terms of the quality of the colourful graphs, diagrams, pictorials and design layout, shows the quality of the work involved to trying to engage and help the student through the process of learning. There are very good exam tips throughout as the book goes through each topic section. In an age where young people are perpetually on connected devices such as smart phones and tablets - there in contains a unique and useful code at the back of the book, that can be used to explore topics beyond the text to the latest updated information on a web site. Gone are the days of `dry' feature poor textbooks, in a way I wish I had had this kind text book material in my day, thoroughly recommended.

This range of 'premium' textbooks by CGP truly does go above and beyond any expectations I had of them. With the cheaper revision guides by them the detail isn't great, and they seem to underline every other word. These books (Chemistry, Biology and Physics) subvert from this though; they're truly brilliant books for the value and are perfect for the AQA syllabus of Triple science (three 1hour exams for each sub-science).

Not only does the book explain the subject in incredible depth, but offer practice questions that are very similar to those in the exam. These books offer a free digital copy (in which you can only access via cgp's website, not have it downloaded) which allow you to learn even without them present.

Before using this book I was achieving A's in Biology, now I'm at an A* grade in my Mocks. Definitely worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great study aid 11 Oct 2013
By Beanie Luck Spud TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Excellent resource tool for the young student embarking for the 1st time with this subject.

Like many others i got this to help my nephew study, he is adamant he is going to be a professional footballer, but until that happens his parents are insisting he study's hard.

I took biology gcse back in the day and did some of the practice answers at the back.

Failed miserably.

Best left to the kids this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book- even for final revision 10 April 2014
Verified Purchase
CGP's Revision guides are often known to be short and underline almost every word, which, lets be honest, isn't that helpful. So I wanted a cross between My Nelson Thornes AQA Biology Textbook and the short CGP guide. This was an excellent choice - it is concise, but not too concise like the reveision guide, giving specification references as the L.Objectives so it easier to know what you are suppose to learn for the exam in May, and being thorough (in short words). Practice questions are good and answers are in the back. Step by step guides are used for the more tricky stuff.
Get this book-its good!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good resource for independent study 18 Aug 2014
By N. Gratton TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Disclaimer: I'm reading this book as a science teacher, so obviously my review comes from that perspective.

This clearly labelled student textbook teaches exactly the specification requirements for the AQA Biology course, while adding relevant examples.

An introductory section ('How Science Works') outlines the scientific method, and is followed by sections on each Biology topic from the course. Shorter closing sections cover the controlled assessment (a practical investigation that makes up 25% of the final mark) and explain the exams and exam technique. If you own the Chemistry and Biology versions of this book, you'll find that the non-Biology-specific sections are repeated in each book.

Each topic sub-unit, normally around 3 pages, explains the main points of a topic with plentiful diagrams, photographs, and key words introduced in bold text. Side bars learning objectives, and subject matter and exam tips. Practice questions help check that students have taken in the necessary information and can apply it. Full solutions to these questions are found in the back of the book - teachers' opinions will vary on whether including the solutions is a good thing. At the end of each topic is a checklist summary of the topic and exam-style questions (again, solutions are included at the back).

A glossary at the end of the book defines key words that have to be learnt.

I find this an excellent resource for self-study of the GCSE course - explanations given are very clear, and students can use the answers to check their own work. Whether it's the best main textbook to use in a classroom setting will depend on the particular group of students - but those doing separate sciences are likely to find it useful for independent study.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent learning resource 15 Oct 2014
By Mrs. Gail Brewster VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is an excellent learning resource. It is written in plain English without excessive use of scientific words, it follows the AQA curriculum but is very helpful for all GCSE Biology studies. The microscopic photographs are fantastic they make viruses look beautiful. There is a unique reference number at the front of the book which allows you to access a full interactive version of the book on your computer (As I'm a visual learner, I found this an excellent extra benefit) unfortunately the unique reference number can only be used once so if, like me, you wanted to pass it onto your grandchildren, they can't access it on their own computers and must use my computer instead or just read the book at home. If you sell the book at some stage, the buyer wouldn't be able to use the code either. The book is well laid out and goes into the relevant depth on each topic, providing examples and tips on how to answer questions and then tests you on your knowledge before going onto the next topic. I have found it invaluable as a learning tool, the computer access is an added benefit.
