This book meets the needs of all students following the Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) syllabus for IGCSE Chemistry. Updated for the most recent syllabus and the latest scientific developments, it covers all aspects of the syllabus content in an attractive and engaging format forboth native and non-native speakers of English. Each book is accompanied by a free CD which provides a wealth of support for students, such as practical investigations, practice exam-questions and revision tips. An accompanying Teacher's Guide and Revision Guide are also available. We are workingwith CIE to obtain full endorsement of this new edition.
RoseMarie Gallagher is the well-known author of All about Biology.
