Review:

"I really feel that the book has been pitched at exactly the right level, and will appeal to pupils and teachers alike. I am sure that it will be popular, because I believe it has found a style and a level that will fill the current gap in provision of suitable textbooks that adequately cover the WJEC specification. The Physics is sound, correct and all fundamental physical principles have been applied correctly to the different contexts encountered within the book. There is a wide range of examples and of physics problems, some with worked solutions that cover the whole range of the WJEC AS specification. Unlike many other text books which support other Awarding Bodies' specifications currently on the market, the Physics is not lost or buried within the contextualisation of the advice given ,or the worked examples. The book moves at a fast pace, but the content is full and focussed and follows the WJEC AS specification faithfully. The worked examples will be popular with students because they are topical, have been written by current examiners and reflect the style and level of demand of current WJEC examination papers. The summaries, although concise, are very good because they draw together ideas discussed within the unit. The Physics within them is correct, all basic Physical principles having been correctly applied. The practical unit PH3 gives much useful common-sense practical help to candidates of A/AS Physics and fulfils the needs of candidates of AS/A Physics who do not study mathematics. The mathematical requirements needed to make good progress in practical Physics are well laid out and explained. The treatment of uncertainties is very clear and easy to follow - this is a part of the PH3 unit that candidates sometimes struggle with. The final section on practice questions which gives students the necessary practice opportunities and helps them enhance their examination technique is well laid out. There is a good, eclectic mix of definition-type, descriptive, problems and practical exercise questions. I have worked through all the Physics problems and consider them to be of an appropriate standard for AS. There are no errors of Physics in them, nor misapplication of Physical principles. This is a very positive review - I can assure you that I have been unbiased in my reading of the text. It is a candidate/teacher-friendly resource and I am sure that it will be well received."
