Reviews

So you really want to learn Science 2 contains all the material needed for the Key Stage 3 syllabus in one volume, with each science colour-coded for ease of reference. Although the text has been written for pupils in the prep school sector, I believe that it is perfect for teaching any Key Stage 3 pupil as all the material in the book is relevant for the national curriculum. The information is clearly presented with explanations followed by practice exercises to ensure that students have grasped each concept. There are also extension questions for further practice and development on certain topics. A separate answer book accompanies the textbook as well as an excellent resource CD which features downloadable experiments, data handling exercises, internet projects and much more. This is a fantastic complement to the textbook and an ideal resource for busy science departments, particularly where a non-specialist is teaching the subject. After looking for a whole of Key Stage 3 textbook, I was delighted to finally find a book with such clear content and challenging exercises. My students are thoroughly enjoying using this series and I would certainly recommend this book to any teacher of the Key Stage 3 syllabus. Claire McCourt, Baylis Court School A single text for all three sciences for the two year course leading to the 13+ CE examination is a first in publishing and will be warmly welcomed by teachers and pupils alike. The content provides thorough coverage of the CE syllabus and the style and format cannot fail to enthuse and captivate the reader. Dr David Penter, Chairman of the ISEB Science Panel The book we wanted, our parents asked for and our pupils needed has arrived ... it comes as no surprise that ISEB has offically endorsed So you really want to learn Science as an examination course book. Richard Hampstead, Westmister Abbey Cathedral School Having been sent many other Key Stage 3 textbooks, I have to say that this book is absolutely brilliant and I am delighted with the layout of it. Steve Fields, Greshams School
