5.0 out of 5 stars Edexcel AS Physics revision
Just as required. This revision guide recommended by tutors because of excellent definitions of A level terminology. Just into AS course - already valuable.

2.0 out of 5 stars Inadequate!
Inadequate would be the best word to use here.

Too many details are omitted and the explanations (if any) are at times unclear. As a result you are left trying to just remember it all rather than understand it, which often leads to.....why bother learning it?

Another thing I have to say is that you could understand everything in this book, but still...

Inadequate would be the best word to use here.

Too many details are omitted and the explanations (if any) are at times unclear. As a result you are left trying to just remember it all rather than understand it, which often leads to.....why bother learning it?

Another thing I have to say is that you could understand everything in this book, but still score badly on a physics exam because in the sections of an exam paper that ask you to EXPLAIN, or SUGGEST A REASON FOR or DESCRIBE, this book would be totally useless at preparing you for them. Why? Because examiners are looking for certain phrases or technical words which you may never have thought to include in your answer - and this book doesn't teach you when to use them!

Interestingly, upon reading examiners reports for candidates answers, they all seem to say the same thing - candidates waffle on about things that are irrelevant to the question, or candidates fail to recognise the points which need to be made.

Bad points aside, its just a revision guide, and it probably assumes the reader has already undergone intense study of the subject. It has some pictures to aid and there are a few insufficient small exercises - however, a revision guide should be at least prepared to ready someone for the exam board they advertise on the front!

I was struggling with mechanics at the start of the course, but after purchasing this book and reading through it it all made sense.
Taught me more than my teacher could have!

Great buy!
Amazing help for anyone struggling with AS Physics!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great tool for revision!, 11 May 2014
This review is from: Edexcel AS Physics Revision Guide (EDEXCEL A LEVEL SCIENCES) (Paperback)
this is a great book for revising 1-2 days before the exam.. you wont need to make flash cards or anything cuz this book has the content to know laid out in a concise way so that reviewing is made easier!

obviously you wont find the content in detail cuz its a revision guide. its good for revision purposes only . it also has answers at the back for the questions it asks at end of each topic. there are also thinking tasks provided for applying the concept to real world situation to help you build your application of physics skills. this is important cuz the exam has questions where you are given real world situations and you are expected to apply your concepts of physics to it.

definitely a great buy! recommended for all those who do not have time to make cards etc and all who need to just revise the main concepts prior to the exam!

price is worth it! :)

Thank you for the guide, it's really helping me with my studies, compared to using the really dragging not-straight-to-the-point textbooks.

It's good for a quick summary of a topic in physics, however I required something with lot more detail than that.
