4.0 out of 5 stars
Great compact read with surprising depth, 12 Jan 2010
Bit of background.
I have been a fan of these books ever since I took my original a levels in 2005. Five years later, I am doing my science A levels for OCR and immediately went on amazon to find these books. They are very small and compact which is useful for reading whilst travelling, but they cover all the specification and have lots of depth on the topics. I would definately recommend these sets of books, but in addition to a much heavier textbook to add additional insight that the size cannot cover.
It also has a section of the book that covers exam technique and past papers with example answers. This was moderately helpful but I feel that this is needed for more essay based courses than sciences.
