I have spent so much money over the years on education text books that are either dull and repetitive, or dumb down the subject. However, this book was an excellent choice for my eleven year old home schooled son who is fascinated by all things scientific. It is engaging and informative, and covers a wide range of science based subjects. I also purchased the Homework books to go with this book, so that we can explore the ideas further. I did notice though that the CD which accompanies each Homework book covers most of the material in the Pupil book!
A really good buy!

My child is in year 7 and we have used this to assist her with her science project and homeworks rather than just trawling the internet, which most homeworks seem to entail. There are no decent text books at my children's school and the science department have developed their own curriculum, which makes it hard to find a useful book. It has an upbeat feel to it and describes what you need to do to improve your levels. The use of text books in schools seems to be out of fashion but I find it reassuring to have this at home to try and top up her knowledge and skills.
