5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Supplement for A Level Biologists, 8 May 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: The Times Education Series A Level Biology (CD-ROM)
I am currently studying A Level Biology and this software has really helped me through my revision. It is partcularly good in that it contains both quick and exam style questions for each section and will calculate your score after completing each one so that you can check your progress.If you haven't got much memory space on your computer then this is ideal: it can either be installed so there is no need to insert the CD everytime you want to use it, or it will run directly from the CD.
Topics covered include photosynthesis, respiration, homeostasis, biological molecules, the environment and cell structure. I found this software particularly useful on photosynthesis and the nervous system which are explained throughly with a range of diagrams to support the text and if you don't like reading from a computer screen then there is no need to worry because you can chose whether or not to have the main text read out to you.
It doesn't matter what syllabus you are studying I can guarentee that this software package will be of real use to you, taking the stress out of revision and helping you to improve or maintain your grade.A great change from hand-written notes!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Perfect solution for revision, 18 April 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: The Times Education Series A Level Biology (CD-ROM)
I found the strong point of this software was its coverage of the central nervous system which was a topic that I found confusing. After each section there is an option to try either exam style questions or quick questions, which are really useful if you are in the intial stages of revision and want to check how much you have taken in. At the end of the questions it calculates your score and answers are provided after each question. Coverage of homeostasis is particularly good and the presentation of ideas and difficult concepts through the use of diagrams makes learning A-Level Biology a much more rewarding experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very helpful!, 31 May 2005
By A Customer
This review is from: The Times Education Series A Level Biology (CD-ROM)
This is the best biology software that I have tried. It covers all the topics even for the 2005/2006 exams. It is reasonably interactive and has various animations that clarify complex areas of the syllabus. You can choose to have the information read out to you or not and there are exams questions or quick questions; both relevant and both very helpful indeed. This makes learning and revising a Level biology so much easier.
