This book provides a clear and easy path to learning all the essential information in the new 2008 AQA Chemistry AS specification for Unit 2: Chemistry in Action. It is the perfect way to support your studies and an excellent revision guide. It includes: -How Science Works guidance to help tackle this new key focus in the specification -Examiner's Notes boxes to give advice on exam technique and warn of common misconceptions -Essential Notes boxes to highlight crucial information -Definition boxes and a comprehensive glossary to help memorise essential terminology -Practice questions to help prepare for exams -An index for quick reference


Reviews of previous edition: It's official - whoever had the idea for this series of Collins revision guides is a genius. Why? Well, read on...These guides are written specifically for the AQA Chemistry syllabus. Many revision guides are written for the general subject of Chemistry - however, there are differences between the different exam boards, and so using a syllabus specific revision guide ensures you are learning all of the material you need to know - and are not wasting time learning things not on your syllabus. Plus, these provide clearly worked examples of the sorts of questions you get asked not only in exams, but also for your homework - which comes in useful! If that isn't enough to convince you that you should buy this immediately, this guide is also written really clearly, using bullet points, tables and margin notes to ensure you understand every topic fully, and each section is clearly referenced to the syllabus, so you can make revision notes really easily and quickly. Still not convinced? Well - my chemistry teacher was so impressed with it, he's planning to buy a complete set for his class next year!

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
