    Ok so I'm doing Edexcel AS-level Biology (new 2015 syllabus), I'm doing the exams as a private candidate but know nothing about the core practicals as I haven't physically done any of them in the lab. Someone please help me, are there any good books out there to revise from? or resources online some where that breaks everything down?

    I was working through some past papers but realised that I literally can not answer questions related to practicals for Unit 1 and Unit 2.

    e.g.

    Well I don't know about the new spec but for the old spec, if the practicals are still the same, you'd need a scribd acount to download these, so you either pay or upload anything from your computer inorder to get these for free. https://www.scribd.com/doc/55809860/...tical-Workbook

    Youtube channel for some of the edexcel practicals:

    Thank you so much!! I have actually come across James Hills YouTube channel and find his videos very useful!

    Is there an answer booklet for the 'Merchant Taylor's School AS Biology Workbook'? As I probably won't have a lot of time to go through everything myself

    Aw no worries then. I think I'll just mainly have to learn from the summary sheet thingy :/

    What would you suggest the best way to learn/remember these core practicals for exams? I literally can not answer a single question related about the practicals :/

    Well, I personally watch the core practicals on youtube many times so that I could visualise them in the exam.
