An attractive and inspiring book, covering the CSEC syllabus in Physics, this book offers students and their teachers a comprehensive resource to prepare for the CSEC examination. Clearly written by world-renowned authors, and will illustrations throughout, the book covers everything that students need to know to understand the syllabus. Considerable help and guidance is given on the practical as well as the theoretical aspects of the syllabus, and students whose time in the laboratory is limited will find many experiments and procedures clearly explained and illustrated.
Clear explanations of the work required by the syllabus, invaluable for schools where time in the laboratory is limitede-book available on CD-ROMExpert author team
