The second edition of the "KS3 Science Summary Book" is now closely aligned with the QCA's scheme of work and, where appropriate, the contents have been reordered to make an exact match. Key terms and chapter titles are now chosen to fit with the scheme, so that pupils and teachers can see clearly where each topic fits. The full colour diagrams are relevant and detailed and support the written explanations closely, and cartoons are used to help explain some of the more abstract concepts. Overall, the book provides a clear and concise summary of KS3 science, which informs, tests and supports pupils throughout all three years.
