3.0 out of 5 stars Practical help, 5 Jun. 2006
This book should be a must read for all PGCE and BEd students. It will help to overcome the difficulties that will be experienced when starting to teach science investigations for the first time. Experienced teachers will like it as a source of ideas but may find some of the suggestions impractical for their schools resources.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top grades!, 5 Jun. 2006
This is a great biology text book in a very modern style. Concepts are presented as a complete double spread with clear diagrams and quality explanations.

To a teacher this gives the opportunity to work in manageable chunks of work that the students can keep pace with. For the student this makes referencing and revision easy to plan and carry out.

As this is a general biology text remember to check the publishers website to see which concepts are required for your exam board!

5.0 out of 5 stars Clear and understandable, 5 Jun. 2006
A well written and presentred A level text book, this has concise and readable explanations as well as clear well drawn diagrams to complement the text. This covers both the AS and A level syllabus but is not tied to any one exam board. So be aware that some of the ideas covered may not be required for the board you are taking. However as this is a more complete biology text it will help to stretch the better student and give them more than a syllabus specific text book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple and effective, 5 Jun. 2006
This book takes each concept in the course and presents it as a two page summary of key ideas and explanations. It then gives an opportunity to test your understanding in a series of review questions.

As it is an active form of revision it is a very useful tool to prepare for the exams.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another winner, 5 Jun. 2006
This story starts slowly and can at times seem a bit predictable. However, the pace quickens as the story develops and by the end you want to know what will happen next.

It will be a frustrating wait while the rest of the trilogy is being written!

4.0 out of 5 stars Mind mapping revision, 5 Jun. 2006
This is a useful revison tool as it takes each concept in the biology A level syllabus and presents a concise single page diagam laid out as a form of mind map.

Students I have shown the book to find it useful and we now have some copies in the school library.

If you find you do not work well with mind maps this might not be for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Historical science?, 5 Jun. 2006
This is a book that took complex ideas and presented them well at a time when the science was not widely understood. Written as a satire on the victorian society where the author lived it still chalenges some of our modern prejudices.

Consider also reading Flatterland by Ian Stewart, which brings the ideas into a modern context

5.0 out of 5 stars Readable science, 5 Jun. 2006
Richard dawkins presented complex scientific ideas in a very readable, understandable way in books such as "The selfish Gene" and "Climbing Mount Improbable".

Here once again is a well presented readable book about the beginning of life as we know it, presented in a series of short essays.

This is a book to take your time over and savour as you read it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great story telling, 5 Jun. 2006
This is a book to come back to time and time again. First puiblished in the 60's it still feels new. The characters are good and you want to know what happens to them.

You need to add the Lavalite world to this to complete the story.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for biology teachers!, 5 Jun. 2006
As a biology teacher I find this a very useful book for the physics classes I have to teach. However, while good for GCSE and KS3 work I did not find it great for GNVQ.

If you have to teach physics - you should read this.
