Yes I bought it today from Waterstones

It absolutely brilliant I give it 9 out of 10!!!!

If they had used a better quality paper and made it in COLOUR then it would be 10 out of 10.

Apart from the the above it is fantastic.

Essential for last minute cramming the night before the exam.

It has EVERYTHING you need to know but VERY CONCISE AND TO THE POINT.

It has questions too which are useful exam practice.

I would say for £6 this book is EXCELLENT. It has saved me alot of time for writing out my own revision notes just to recall from memory etc.

All in all a brilliant revision guide and it is written by Sang who also wrote the Physics 1 and 2 OCR module books.

Nothing much on the practical apart from the essential experiments that you need to know such as Youngs Slit experiment.

I am not taking the first AS unit as I got a good mark in it. Will be doing so in June though if I need more UMS marks!!!!

Still very worried about the PRACTICAL they are totally unpredictable :mad: . The practical exam papers for AQA are FREE on the website, it is similiar to the OCR board. So I am bit more confident but still worried about messing up the next time. I did very badly in the Waves and Practical Papers. :mad:

Is that forces and motion?

P.S when did you take the wave properties paper?
E.g. jan 04, etc.

I'm not too worried about the practical but I am worried about the written paper. i got an A in my mock practical and I also got an A in my mock written, but I also feel that some of the answers are a struggle. That's why I'm getting this book.

Also, does this book explain polarisation properly?
i feel that the explanation in physics 1 is not really to the point. Thanks.
