    This is also at everyone else. I just wanted to know how long it is taking you to revise? For example, how long it takes you to complete a page in the CGP book. Because you guys seem to be doing it really quickly, while also being able to remember everything :eek:. Any tips please?

    I've done P3 now Science COMPLETE. One page takes about 5 or so mins depending how hard it is, don't stay on the same page till you remember it all COMPLETELY word for word, you will just get fed up. Just get the basic principles down and try to understand it rather than just memorise the book. If you can do that you can apply it to different situations, and some more complicated concepts come from previous pages (especially in P3).

    I forgot to say, then you recap and learn all those little bits that wouldn't stay in your head. By the time of the exam you should know the book inside out completely

    Electromagnets: First you need to know the definition of a magnetic field, which is a region in which wires carrying current and magnetic materials experience a force on them.

    If you put a magnetically "soft" iron core in to coils of wire carrying current (or a solenoid), this increases the strength of the magnetic field. If you stop the current flowing through the coils, the electromagnet turns off because the soft iron core demagnetises very easily.

    It's useful for cranes which basically pick up metals by attracting them with an electromagnet. The electromagnets can be turned off, so you can drop the metals wherever you wanted them.

    However if you were to have a hard core the metal would stay magnetised even if current through the wire was turned off. This isn't used for cranes because once the metals are attracted to the crane, you wouldn't be able to drop them off as the magnet can't turn off.
