The first part of this ISEB-endorsed Science Prep course, Book 1 covers the Key Stage 2 syllabus for Biology, Chemistry and Physics and is ideal preparation for Common Entrance at 11+. The book is highly illustrated with colour pictures and diagrams specially commissioned for the book. Each topic is covered in a compact format so that the student need never feel overwhelmed by the bulk of the content, and students' progress can be monitored by a series of test questions included at the end of each section. These questions are graded in difficulty so that students of all abilities can show what they have learnt and understood. There is an accompanying Teacher's Book (ISBN 1902984226).
