5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Mr. D. W. Garwood on 22 May 2011
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Everyone studying this course will have been issued with/recommended the Nelson Thornes A2 AQA physics textbook. However, the course is designed so you study 3 modules: (1) Nuclear Physics, (2) Thermal & Gas Physics, (3) an option from Medical, Astronomy, Applied and Turning points Physics.

The Nelson Thornes book has modules (1) and (2) in it, but none of the option modules, which knowledge of one is required for the final exam. We were taught turning points as our option module. The only other textbooks I could find with this module in were the CGP revision guide (which I have found to be over simplified, and missing essential parts) and the Letts revision guide. Revision guides are OKAY but they are what they say on the tin; merely revision guides.

This textbook is written similarly to the Nelson Thornes book. It contains decent explanations and more challenging equation deriving made easy. The best part is, it contains both mandatory modules (1) and (2) but also all of the option modules! The only downside would be the lack of questions and answers to try yourself, but you can't have it all.

A must-buy for the course, enabling you to potentially reach the A* grade, yes it is possible!

Being the only text book to contain the optional units: Astrophysics, Medical Physics, Applied Physics and (the unit I covered) Turning Points in Physics. It is a must buy. I find notes taken from lessons good, but not good enough, and feel far more confident in knowing what the examiners want you to know. As well as having examples, practice exam questions and tips if you are having difficulty, make it a very good resource.

There are not many books on the market that support both the AQA unit 5 core module and all the options. This one does and I have to admit it does it well. It is easy to follow and full of helpful facts and questions. I used it for the "turning points" module and found it more useful that the school provided booklet and text book. Well worth getting if you are serious about doing well in the summer exams.

I used the Collins Education text books during AS and was very happy with how they managed to sum up everything in such a short amount of writing so I went ahead and bought this one for A2. For me, the stand-out thing for this textbook is that it DOES contain the option units (which the official AQA one strangely doesn't) and therefore is the best all round textbook for Unit 5.

Purchased as an assistance to my son when he was preparing for examination and this text proved to be very valuable as a learning resource.The text follows very closely the published syllabus and the trial questions are excellent preparation for examination.

This book is really worth purchasing- I'm sure that, without this book, I would have definitely failed A-level Physics! It covers everything that the Nelson Thornes book and my teachers didn't.

My son has his school books, loads of online material which he uses alot, yet he finds these books to be concise and extensive in coverage. Highly recommended learning tool.
