Very useful in class and for homework
A very useful text both for in-class use and for homework. Students have clear information to digest and have a range of questions to assess their understanding. Excellent diagrams with clear annotations serve to clarify some difficult ideas and processes. Core practicals are covered in detail and students are guided in how to analyse the data provided.
The Teacher’s Digital Edition allows the ability to discuss and project the answers on the board which is extremely useful.
Overall we are very pleased with the product and will continue to use it.
Mathematical and biological skills are well represented and laid out in an easily understandable way. Covers all of the essential material and occasionally goes beyond what is required in the spec which encourages the more able students to think more deeply

About the Specifications

This is a fully revised series for the new Edexcel AS and A Level specifications for Biology B*. The authors gave considerable thought and analysis to their approach in developing a student-friendly yet comprehensive resource for the revised specifications, opting for a flexible, concept-based approach over the context-based design of the Salters-Nuffield A specification. Our choice of a concept-based approach did not preclude a wide and varied use of appropriate contexts for content delivery, but provided greater flexibility to approach topics thematically, scaffold learning, and make conceptual connections across different topics.

*Level 3 Advanced Subsidiary GCE in Biology B (8BIO ) and Level 3 Advanced GCE in Biology B (9BIO)
