Complete Biology for Cambridge Secondary 1 Workbook: For Cambridge Checkpoint and Beyond

Author(s): Pam Large

CIE Biology | KS1-KS3 Science

Ensure your students reach their full potential at Cambridge Checkpoint level and enable them to confidently leap into Cambridge IGCSE® science study with a solid foundation in Biology. Suitable for independent study, these Workbooks include a wide range of extra revision and practical material that closely supports all the material in the Student Books, to help students consolidate their learning. Practice tests are set out the Cambridge Checkpoint way, so students can tackle assessments with confidence. Crucial rigour is built in from the start, with exercises designed to challenge and stretch all abilities, and extension material that smooths the transition to Cambridge IGCSE. Plus, it's endorsed by Cambridge International Examinations, so you know it's comprehensive.
