Covering the core requirements of the OCR A, Edexcel and AQA specifications, AS and A Level Chemistry is clearly structured into two parts for AS and A Level to ensure students progress confidently through the course.
Support for students - clear language and explanations do not assume a strong scientific background. Worked examples supported by practice questions are provided for difficult topics.
Gradual progression - the content gets progressively harder through the book to match students' increased understanding.
Extension material provides a deeper understanding and enrichment for higher ability students.
Assessment - exam style questions at the end of each chapter assess and consolidate students' knowledge and aid revision.
"Provides excellent reading and a constant stimulus to study further...a valuable addition to any sixth form."
