Everything is clearly laid out and explained with simple sentence structures, in language which should be relatively easy to understand even for students whose first language isn't English. Any student who is capable of understanding CIE A level chemistry exam papers should have no difficulties with this book! The calculations are also done well.
There are questions embedded in each chapter with detailed answers in the back of the book. The end-of-chapter questions have full answers (including mark schemes) on the CD-ROM. The CD-ROM doesn't use any fancy software, and so can be easily accessed whichever operating system your computer uses - it certainly works fine on my Apple Mac.
Any student buying this book, having previously used the old textbook or the awful Applications Support Booklet, would find their life suddenly got a great deal easier.
Jim Clark (Chemguide)
It's clearly laid out, accessible by English as second language learners (if handled correctly) and, most importantly, covers the entire syllabus in one handy volume (so you aren't going to end up rooting round in a bunch of different places to find the basic content).
In short, buy this book, you can't go far wrong with it if you're teaching the CIE A-Level Chemistry course.
My grumble would be that compared to the first edition, it feels shorter, so I have to wonder if it's covering the course in the same detail as the first book. I haven't found any major gaps, but I suspect that a few minor ones are there.
