Advantages Covers pretty much everything you need to know
Disadvantages There is so much!
SCIENCEThere are 2 books needed when revising modular science. One is the 'early modules' revision guide, which is needed throughout year 10, as separate modular tests are taken at different stages. The other is the 'final exam' revision guide, which covers the modules you cover in year 11. The 'early modules' guide also has some information needed for the final exam, outlined in blue boxes.
---Early Modules book---This covers module 1 (Humans as organisms), module 2 (Maintenance of life), module 5 (metals), module 6 (earth materials, module 9 (Energy) and module 10 (electricity). These are all the topics you will need for the year 10 modular tests.
Each module is in separate sections, which are colour coded, so when flicking through the book, you can find the one you need - Humans as organisms topics are written in the corner of the page in green, maintenance of life's in blue etc.The modules are split in to separate parts, so they are managable to learn eg, on Humans as organisms, topics are separated into to topics; Human bodies, Digestive system, breathing system, transport, disease and dissolved substances. These are split again on the contents page in to more topics, for instance, the topic 'Breathing system' is split in to Lungs and Breathing, Alveoli, Cells and Diffusion, and Respiration. This is the same throughout the book and modules, so each part of a topic is easy to learn.
The contents page shows all the modules, and all the topics in them, with page numbers so you can find what you are looking for quickly, should you just want to look something up. I tend to just work through the book, but this is useful right before the exam, when you want to recap.All the pages in the book have pictures, and different coloured writting, to make it eye catching, and suposedly look less daunting to start learning. I admit that i am more likely to look at a colourful page, with diagrams, than a page full of plain black and white writing! It is also usefull how their are many coloured sub headings with key facts, meaning that I remember the key points of information, and so it is easier to learn what follows.
The pages are half pictures, with useful diagrams, which does make it easier to learn the infomation. The diagrams are simple and straight forward, so they are easy to copy. They are also very colourful, making them eye-catching.The different sized and different coloured writing makes it easy to remember the key facts, and to separate the information, so it is all easier to learn.
The book has 108 pages in total, including the index, but without the pictures, this would be halfed.
