Dr Pickering is an experienced and lucid author and his text closely correlates with the demands of the 11+ Common Entrance Science syllabus. He has included a focus on experimental design which will help lay the foundations for children to develop the practical and investigative skills required throughout secondary science education. --Dr David Penter, Malvern College

This book is well laid out, well illustrated and has clear concise and well explained text. My son really loves this book and looks forward to his science lesson every day.
She found it interesting and challenging,but not daunting. It goes into detail and links science to the real world.
She was placed on a level 6 in Science and achieved the second highest mark in her class.
Interestingly, she even used Book 2 in senior school to recap basics to understand more advanced concepts.
I agree that the questions can be open to interpretation/tricky/ and could knock confidence so I used them with the answer book available,rather than testing.
My son used these too and enjoyed them.
