[Read] ➶ Grade 9-1 GCSE Physics Complete Revision & Practice with Online Edition (CGP GCSE Physics 9-1 Revision) ➳ CGP Books – Tactical-player.co.uk
This is the complete revision and practice book for AQA s GCSE Physics course rewritten for the new Grade 9 1 exams It is the perfect accompaniment to AQA s GCSE Physics textbook which I have also reviewed.The book states that it contains everything needed to pass the exams and when flicking through the book, students are able to see pages full of one page summaries of the subtopics they have studied, revision summary checklists and warm up and exam questions.Inside the front cover there is a very useful page entitled What to expect in the exams which split the exam into the two papers, the time given per paper, the number of marks avaliable and the topics assessed in each paper It talks about the different question types used during the exam, how the maths skills techniques and practical skills are assessed and the need to understand the working scientifically techniques There is also an online access code given in each textbook for a free online edition of the textbook.The revision book is split into the seven topics of the syllabus and each topic has fantastic one page revision summaries of each important sub topic, along with warm up and exam questions, exam questions and revision summaries The exam questions also are stamped to guide students to the appropriate questions for the levels they are working towards.I highly recommend this book as a fantastic accompaniment to the text book that AQA have also published to provide students with the ideal course accompaniment for their studies, revision and exam preparation.

I acquired this revision book as I am training to be a Science teacher and wanted to refresh my memory with regard to GCSE Physics I was also conscious that the exams have recently changed the syllabus that will be tested aswell as changing from letter grades to number grades This edition is for GCSE Physics courses starting from September 2016 and covers the new 9 1 grading system.The book itself is JAMMED pack with information Each page is colour with great diagrams and different coloured headings The books is arranged into topics 8 in all and has separate sections for Working Scientifically and Practical Skills There are also Practice Exam papers included as a separate section Each Topic section goes through the theory, providing examples and questions with a Revision Questions page at the end of each topic section answers are provided at the back so that you can check your understanding.There is also a handy Physics Equation Sheet page on the inside of the back cover.Not to forget that there is also on online version of the book that can be accessed using the code printed on the inside page.All in all this is a fantastic revision guide but should not be mistaken for being able to replace the text book This is to be used to check your understanding and not to learn new topics Highly recommend. I m a science teacher and private tutor of science, and am approaching this review from that viewpoint.I m a huge fan of CGP s new Complete Revision series, which provide a very comprehensive all in one way to prepare for the GCSE exams at the end of the course.Explanations are extremely clear, given in short easily digestible snippets, and have key ideas underlined Copious relevant diagrams and illustrative images make the text even accessible A range of background colours help highlight different sections.The book begins with an introductory section on Working Scientifically, giving an excellent summary of scientific processes and thinking methods.The eight topics of the course are covered in detail, with pages of revision notes interspersed by pages with Warm Up and Exam Questions Each exam style question indicates the working level it relates to and the number of marks available.At the end of the book is a section on the necessary Practical Skills, a set of Practice Exam Papers, and full answers to the warm up questions, exam style questions and practice exam papers.A code is provided to use on CGP s website to view a digital copy of the book onscreen.Very highly recommended if followed this book will provide a great preparation tool for GCSE students.Note there are both exam board specific e.g AQA and generic no exam board in the title versions of these books comparing a wide sample of pages from the two versions side by side, there appears to be no difference between them.
