If you study using this book you'll definitely fail.

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.
