    The biology A2 class in my school has just been explicitly recomended to buy them. I don't do biology, but have found them very good for Politics, History, and English; they are very exam focussed and provide more advice than the generic Letts ones, etc. Not too expensive either. Worth a try, I'd say

    they are useful i used the unit 5 one but i used it in conjunction with my other notes because they do not contain everything you need to know.

    Buy the thinnest guide that looks decent is my best advice... and never ever ever read textbooks...

    Biology textbooks are the spawn of the devil... They have been designed so people get the false impression that biology is difficult...
