    Anyone taking the Food Science exam? How are you learning/revising for it?

    We were given some white text books and a bunch of exam questions with answers, the book isn't great, any other revision resources?

    yeah the book is really lame, but theres some biochem papers on the nuffield site (as above) but its supposed to be easy paper and im told it isnt unsusual for students to get 100% on it. Its all recalling facts and if you do biology (like me) then you have an extra advantage.

    im doin the biology special study and i can understand it fine, its just rememberin the whole booklet, im guna do rubbish. i dont understand why a lot of exams are all about how much you can remember, in a real academic job, you would just look in a book for a some sorta name/formula you couldnt remember, they should test your understanding more instead. maybe im just sayin that because i cant remember anything! Im looking forward to the synoptic because we get the text book.

    im so worried about the food science paper! i spent one day last week writing notes on the book but haven't managed to learn them yet! its so dull I don't know how i'm going 2 remember it... I also feel should be focusing on revising for the unit 4 as its worth so much more overall. i think food science is only worth 7.5% or something? still i need all extra points I can get as i will actually fail the synoptic - oh dear!
