Would not recommend.
on 22 January 2009
Doesn't actually cover the entire syllabus, despite claims to the contrary.
Misses out enormous swathes of the Chemical Storylines material explicitly stated on the OCR Salters Specification, and gives shallow, unhelpful explanations of what's actually *there*.
Grab a copy of the OCR Salters Specification from the OCR Website, and then use that and Chemical Ideas/Storylines- the official course textbooks. You can do a *lot* better than this.
Granted, it's a revision *guide*. And, yes- it's concise. One can't help but feel that it's just a bit *too* concise, though. A few extra pages of padding out would have worked wonders.
Stay well away.
Thankfully, this specification's being phased out this year- hopefully, the next edition will make some headway in fixing these problems.
