There is a BIG jump between GCSE and A-Level.Lots of students find this a massive shock and sometimes find themselves sitting in class lost, not following what the teacher is saying or wishing they had chosen a different subject. This book is designed to help you get started on some of the new content and take your GCSE knowledge to a higher level. Because if you managed to get through GCSE not understanding a topic or skipping over some bits you may find you need the extra help. I'm constantly telling you the best way to learn is by practicing questions, so I've made you a book full of practice questions.135 multiple choice questions to reflect the style of exam questions, 60 equations for you to balance (in 3 different formats), 65 compounds for you to work out the formula for and a lots of things that you need to recall for A-Level.This book is not designed as a text book or revision guide, but as a workbook. There are lots of good (and bad) expensive and free revision guides out there, on my YouTube channel and other great websites. So there is no point in me adding to the masses.Taking some GCSE topics, a bit further and introducing some new topics for A-Level. This is not a complete list of all the GCSE topics that also come up at A-Level; just enough to keep you (Very) busy over the summer and give you an advantage when you start year 12.All the teaching, all the new content, is available for free on my YouTube channel, this book is for you to practice and learn. The best way to approach this is to watch the teaching video, or after class try a section and check the answers.Topics covered are... (you may feel confident in some of these topics, but are you A-Level confident?!?!)Atomic Structure Properties of ionic compoundsCovalent bonding Reference table of common ions formulae Formula of Ionic Compounds Oxidation Numbers Balancing Equations 1 Balancing Equations 2 Turning experiments in to balanced symbol equations Organic Chemistry Keywords Naming alkanesNaming Alkenes Skeletal formula Answers
Science can be tough but that doesn't mean it can't be made fun for kids to understand. It all depends on the presentation of the subject. In this case, it's all about the combination of texts, examples and images. Because your child will be asked to answer a lot examples, true understanding will take root. Secure a copy now!

Seventy years ago, Erwin Schrodinger posed a profound question: 'What is life, and how did it emerge from non-life?' This problem has puzzled biologists and physical scientists ever since. Living things are hugely complex and have unique properties, such as self-maintenance and apparently purposeful behaviour which we do not see in inert matter. So how does chemistry give rise to biology? What could have led the first replicating molecules up such a path? Now, developments in the emerging field of 'systems chemistry' are unlocking the problem. Addy Pross shows how the different kind of stability that operates among replicating molecules results in a tendency for chemical systems to become more complex and acquire the properties of life. Strikingly, he demonstrates that Darwinian evolution is the biological expression of a deeper, well-defined chemical concept: the whole story from replicating molecules to complex life is one continuous process governed by an underlying physical principle. The gulf between biology and the physical sciences is finally becoming bridged. This new edition includes an Epilogue describing developments in the concepts of fundamental forms of stability discussed in the book, and their profound implications. Oxford Landmark Science books are 'must-read' classics of modern science writing which have crystallized big ideas, and shaped the way we think.
