Fully matched to the latest Cambridge syllabus, this updated revision guide provides everything students need to build exam confidence, including practice questions and answers as well as revision and assessment advice from an experienced teacher. The clear and concise format will support students as they prepare for their exams, as well as throughout the year for independent study or homework. Ensuring all students reach their potential, it includes exercises and practice questions that both challenge higher ability students and support lower ability students. Vocabulary-building activities are included to support students whose first language is not English.
Complete Chemistry, Biology and Physics are for students following the Cambridge Assessment International Education updated syllabuses for Cambridge IGCSE. These three books provide clear, well-written course material and a wealth of questions and exercises, including exam-level revision. In addition to this, an accompanying CD-ROM provides interactive questions, mock exam papers with questions from real past papers, and revision checklists to aid learning. With a highly illustrative and colourful design, this engaging recourse is ideal for the international student. * Dr. Kyaw Khine, Head of Science, Nelson International Education Center, Myanmar *
