This book is organised into six chapters: 1. Collecting the evidence; 2. Playing around with the data; 3. Describing, explaining, evaluating; 4. Cells and cell biology; 5. Genes; 6 Gas exchange and transport. Each chapter opens with a very brief introduction to the topic area (which is merely descriptive - the skills and knowledge expected of the candidate are described, but the author doesn't elaborate on how those skills can be demonstrated). Each chapter then consists of several structured questions based on various experiments or case studies. The book doesn't teach us the skills of data handling or interpretation (there are no worked examples); rather, it is a book of practice questions and exercises. The most annoying thing about this book (apart from the lack of explanation and instruction) is that the answers to the questions in the book are not provided, nor does there appear to be a seperate answer book available. I bought this book thinking it would be suitable for self-study - it isn't. Teachers would probably find this book helpful, however. So long as they themselves know the answers to the questions.
