This Chemistry Workbook is tailored to the Cambridge IGCSE® Physical Science (0652) syllabus for first examination in 2019 and is endorsed for learner support by Cambridge International Examinations. The workbook covers both the Core and the Supplement material. Developing students’ scientific skills, the workbook exercises are complemented by self-assessment checklists to help students evaluate their work as they go. Answers are provided at the back of the book.
Endorsed for learner support by Cambridge International Examinations.
Exercises designed to develop skills in problem-solving and data handling, planning investigations and application of theory to practice to help students work towards the assessment objectives.
Self-assessment checklists help students to develop an evaluative approach to their work so they can track their progress as they go.
Answers to the exercises in the workbook are included at the back of the book to allow students to check their own progress and understanding.
Authored by Richard Harwood and Ian Lodge, accomplished examiners and writers who bring a wealth of experience to the book.
Covers the Core and the Supplement material for Cambridge IGCSE® Physical Science in one workbook.
