Not wishing to advertise but there are a series of purple module books by Nelson Advanced Science for the Edexcel syllabus that are brilliant!!

If you have a chance to look them up then module 1 ISBN is 0-17-448293-0 (Molecules and Cells) and Module 2 and 3, which come as one book (Exchange and Transport, Energy and Ecosystems) is ISBN 0-17-448294-9. They include specific pages with the named practicals

Those books are great. Look at the past papers of your biology exams and see what practicals have come up in the past year as it is probable they will not show up this June. Then get the Nelson books and revise the other practicles, 99% of the time this works...you prepared to take that chance?

As for me, honestly, wouldn refer the Nelson book for Unit 2 but rather the Collins Student Support Materials for Edexcel, AS Biology Unit 2 n 3 aswell, its a very gooood book!! Better than the Nelson one, trust me. Got all the right points in one place n its thin so you could easily read it, you dn have to get bored by it (n trust me, you wont be).I just have the unit 2 book with me but i m gona get the unit 3 book tomorrow..
