Several prominent schools prescribed the book in the past as it proved to be an excellent tool in preparing the students on a regular basis for examinations.

Your attention is drawn to the following salient features of the book:

  • 2 x 4h DVD's to visually explain the more difficult concepts.
  • Divided into bite-sized "quanta". Each "quantum" contains a crisp and to the point summary of a specific topic, enriched with hints, followed by an exercise containing all the relevant questions from National Exam papers from 1990 to 2015 as well as examples from the Department of Education. The more difficult topics contain more questions - e.g. the "quantum" on the equilibrium constant, contains more than 100 questions!
  • Step-by-step answers to all the questions in the memorandum in the back of the book.
The book is also available in Afrikaans.
