It wasn't exactly what I expected, but it is just as useful - if not more so!
on 11 August 2014
I initially bought this, in addition to the physics and chemistry revision books, under the impression that it was the textbook version that we used in school. But it was not! After looking at it for a good few moments, I realized that the amazon label did, in fact, say that it was just the revision guide whereas the textbook version distinctly says "AQA Science Students book" in the description... I possibly should have realized that any actual textbook would not be so cheap.
But it is really useful for my exams - it's basically all the sections from the biology revision books across the years combined into one book. I can revise not only the GCSE that i'm taking now, but my past GCSE's as well for when we go over things again in class. It will also, no doubt, be useful for anyone starting high school as it is easy to understand and contains all the key points in small sections that are not too intimidating and has questions to quiz you on your knowledge.
In short, I'm really happy with this book and I feel that it is really helpful. The only reason that I have not given it five stars is because some of the explanations don't really go into enough detail as you get towards the higher stuff at the back of the book.
