This author of this textbook obviously has a great sense of humour, as shown by the frequent quips and puns which serve to break up revision and make it a much lighter task. This is definitely one of the better resources.

Simply great to catch up on many fundamentals. If you like colourful diagrams, choppy simple explanations, you'll like this. It is well formatted into the main sections of the syllabus.
Its also got useful practice and exams questions to have a go at, but you'll need to read elsewhere to fully grasp the AS Physics syllabus. The questions that appear on the real exam are generally more involving than what you'll be practicing with on this edition. Would recommend to gain that extra edge!

Yes, the jokes are terrible, but it's light hearted informal tone and colourful pictures and diagrams makes it "fun" to revise. It's not amazingly detailed, but it gets to the point and outlines the key things you should know, and then if you want you can look it up further for more detail and clarity. It's a must have, easy to read and understand, much better than pages of boring black and white text.

This CGP revision guide is a good aid for anyone studying Physics at AS Level. As a revision guide, it covers all the required topics, but I must stress that it does not cover them in enough detail to achieve the top grades. Like all other CGP guides, the concepts are well explained and nicely summarised. The layout is excellent with all the topics subdivided into manageable chunks. Also, as with all CGP guides you can expect plenty of jokes to make you cringe.

I would recommend that you purchase this guide, however, you should make sure you have another source to fill in the gaps.

Its okay I would still recommend it to people looking for a revision guide

Like
- nice friendly layout like all other CGP books
- explains waves and optics extremely well (best book I have found for it)
- explains most of the materials section well including the graphs which I struggled on

Dislike
- moments calculations are a lot more complex in actual exam papers and this book does not provide sufficient help on this section
- parts of the conservation of energy could be better explained

Not enough detail. I WOULD ONLY RECOMMEND THIS AS A GUIDE. The actual AQA text book is boring and goes in to TOO MUCH detail. Why can't there ever be a book with exactly the necessary. The CGP books are usually good and especially the Chemistry ones, however just using this one can make you fail the exam- well thats what happened to me. Not enough detail to get an A. If you're aiming for a B, its fine but tbh, the examples are too easy and can give you false hope. Buy this book if you are aiming for a B. If you want an A, stick with the other stuff you have.

I used this as a revision guide even though my exam is with NICCEA. It still had the core qualities of the subject and explained the units in a simple way. Worth buying even if you're not sitting AQA.

This revision guide is totally relevant to the course. However, it does not include some very vital parts of the specification. I have compared it to the AQA Physics A specification and it does not give information on everything you need to know. Most of the information you need is in this guide, but not all of it. If you are aiming for an A-grade at AS-level you will need to use other revision materials such as the course textbook to gain complete understanding of the specification. This revision guide alone will not get you an A-grade.
