This student-friendly text is endorsed by Edexcel and matched to the specification unit by unit. To help students make the step up from GCSE the book is divided into an AS section and an A2 section, reflecting the greater challenges of the A2 year. The book is organised into two halves. The AS section uses double page spreads and easier language, to give students the confidence in making the difficult step up from studying at GCSE level. A2 work is written in chapters, at exactly the level needed to achieve this qualification.Each unit begins with a summary explaining what is expected and how it will be assessed. By giving students plenty of advice on what examiners are looking for, we help them prepare thoroughly to do their best in this qualification.A student checklist at the end of each unit is ideal for revision. Practice exam questions are included to give students even more confidence in those units which are assesed by a written paper.Focused practical tasks and homework suggestions appear throughout the book. Where any of the activities are likely to lead to students producing evidence for their Key Skills portfolio, this is highlighted clearly.Two coursework units in the book will give advice to students about the coursework part of the qualification.Also included are examples of the student work done during the Edexcel pilot for this specification, so readers can see the type of work required.
