The book has many mistakes especially in the F215 section.
On complex topics a small amount of information is displayed.
You will need this book to gain any grade in A2 biology however, You will need a lot more resources to do better.
Good luck to any one who's doing the OCR exam.
Thumbs up guys if i helped.
Further the book has past exam questions on each module and also end of module summary questions to test your knowledge. A key feature that is also very useful are the stretch and challenge questions which are placed on some of the spreads. This is helpful for students looking for A and A* grades.
There are some criticisms though. As other reviews suggest, there are mistakes; quite a few. However, these generally can be noticed and do not impact on understanding (although sometimes it can make concepts confusing). Furthermore, the language used could be simpler to make the topics more accessible.
Overall, it is a great book with a few flaws. However, it has many positives and I would be more than happy to use this book and this book only for my A2 biology exam. In my other subjects I would need more than one textbook.
Many of the photos and diagrams were appropriate, though.
All in all, I would not advise it
