Editorial Reviews

"Complete Science for Cambridge Secondary 1 is easy to navigate, with each learning topic covered by a double-page spread. Concepts are clearly explained and followed by questions to test students understanding. In addition to these, this book contains end of unit questions to help studentsprepare for the progress test. And also, Scientific Enquiry sections include advice on carrying out practical work and recording results. Answers to the questions are included on the Teacher's Resource book and CD-ROM." --Dr. Kyaw Khine, Head of Science, Nelson International Education Center, Myanmar
