Advanced Physics for You has been carefully designed to be inviting, interesting and motivating to the student, with features that make it highly supportive of individual learning. It fully covers the new AS-Level and core topics of all A2 specifications.
Written by members of the Editorial Board of the Institute of Physics, Advanced Physics makes A-level physics accessible to all students, with Maths boxes throughout to support concept development. Questions give opportunities to practise recall and analytical skills, and there are high quality diagrams and full colour illustrations throughout.
Covering all GCSE specifications, this tried and tested series has been fully updated to match the (9-1) GCSE Physics specifications for 2016, as well as international specifications. With a focus on science, concepts develop naturally, engaging students and enabling them to get a thorough understanding of Physics.
Advanced Chemistry for You has been carefully designed to be interesting and motivating to the AS/A2 student, with features that make it highly supportive of individual learning. Written by an experienced author team, with the same straightforward approach as the successful New for You GCSE series.
Advanced Physics for You is an exciting resources that helps you study Physics at higher levels of secondary education. Using the same writing style as Keith Johnson's highly-successful GCSE Physics for you, it has been carefully designed to help you enjoy your Physics and make good progress.
Advanced Biology for You has been carefully designed to be interesting and motivating to the AS/A2 student, with features that make it highly supportive of individual learning. Written by an experienced author team, with the same straightforward approach as the successful New for You GCSE series.
From classical mechanics to general relativity, the key principles in all areas of physics are surveyed in this one handy volume. Here Alan Tribble addresses the needs of students and practicing physicists alike. He starts with a review of mathematical methods and then summarizes the most widely used concepts in physics, detailing derivations and applications. With its mix of theory, application, and solved problems, Advanced Physics enables a student to grasp quickly the fundamentals of the field while providing physicists, engineers, and mathematicians with an ideal reference for locating critical formulas or reviewing mathematical details. One of Tribble's goals is to help students, particularly those preparing for comprehensive examinations, to develop and retain a broad base of knowledge and an in-depth understanding of the fundamental physical principles. Until now, reaching this goal has been a time-consuming and difficult task for the student, partly because so many texts have omitted key steps in crucial derivations or have assigned these derivations as exercises. By gathering widespread information into one highly accessible format, Advanced Physics will become an invaluable study aid, will serve readily as a text in a review course or as a supplemental text in higher-level courses, and will make for an indispensable reference for professionals throughout their careers.
Chemistry For You has been written for a wide range of middle-ability students who will benefit from its motivational style, leading them to better achievement at GCSE. This edition offers comprehensive coverage of the new GCSE specifications.
The laws of thermodynamics are amongst the most assured and wide-ranging of all scientific laws. They do not pretend to explain any observation in molecular terms but, by showing the necessary relationships between different physical properties, they reduce otherwise disconnected results to compact order, and predict new effects. This classic title, first published in 1957, is a systematic exposition of principles, with examples of applications, especially to changes of places and the conditions for stability. In all this entropy is a key concept.
Edexcel Physics for A2 level has been written specifically to cover the concept approach to the new specification and is supported by a website containing 43 Personal Tutor worked examples, full answers to the Unit Tests and answers to non-numeric questions. These Personal Tutors are audio-visual resources contain step by step instructions on how to complete the mathematical aspects of the course, offering support to students when they are working on their own and allowing them to work at their own pace. The contents of the book provides all the information necessary for a good grade at A2 level, with an emphasis on understanding basic concepts, fundamental equations, key experiments and worked examples. It includes sections on 'What the examiner expects' and explanations of terms used in questions papers. The author team includes experienced examiners and teachers who have worked together to ensure that the material is approachable to students at the start of their course and gives them all the guidance and information needed to enable them to face their exams with confidence.
The authors of Advanced Chemistry have referred to original research papers to check facts, and highly original artwork has been devised to ensure accuracy and clarity. This text also includes computer-generated graphics to bring molecular chemistry alive. With full mathematical support within the -maths boxes' and at the end of the book, Advanced Chemistry will inspire and support students.
A learner's companion to mechanics and practical physics (AP Physics B - Advanced Placement)

Wouldn't it be great if there were a physics book that showed you how things work instead of telling you how? Finally, with Head First Physics, there is. This comprehensive book takes the stress out of learning mechanics and practical physics by providing a fun and engaging experience, especially for students who "just don't get it." Head First Physics offers a format that's rich in visuals and full of activities, including pictures, illustrations, puzzles, stories, and quizzes -- a mixed-media style proven to stimulate learning and retention. One look will convince you: This isn't mere theory, this is physics brought to life through real-world scenarios, simple experiments, and hypothetical projects. Head First Physics is perfect for anyone who's intrigued by how things work in the natural world. You'll quickly discover that physics isn't a dry subject. It's all about the world we live in, encompassing everything from falling objects and speeding cars, to conservation of energy and gravity and weightlessness, and orbital behavior. This book: Helps you think like a physicist so you can understand why things really work the way they do Gives you relevant examples so you can fully grasp the principles before moving on to more complex concepts Designed to be used as a supplement study guide for the College Board's Advanced Placement Physics B Exam Introduces principles for the purpose of solving real-world problems, not memorization Teaches you how to measure, observe, calculate -- and yes -- how to do the math Covers scientific notation, SI units, vectors, motion, momentum conservation, Newton's Laws, energy conservation, weight and mass, gravitation and orbits, circular motion and simple harmonic motion, and much more If "Myth Busters" and other TV programs make you curious about our physical world -- or if you're a student forced to take a physics course -- now you can pursue the subject without the dread of boredom or the fear that it will be over your head. Head First Physics comes to rescue with an innovative, engaging, and inspirational way to learn physics!
Physics I For Dummies, 2nd Edition (9780470903247) is now being published as Physics I For Dummies, 2nd Edition (9781119293590). While this version features an older Dummies cover and design, the content is the same as the new release and should not be considered a different product. The fun and easy way to get up to speed on the basic concepts of physics For high school and undergraduate students alike, physics classes are recommended or required courses for a wide variety of majors, and continue to be a challenging and often confusing course. Physics I For Dummies tracks specifically to an introductory course and, keeping with the traditionally easy-to-follow Dummies style, teaches you the basic principles and formulas in a clear and concise manner, proving that you don't have to be Einstein to understand physics! Explains the basic principles in a simple, clear, and entertaining fashion New edition includes updated examples and explanations, as well as the newest discoveries in the field Contains the newest teaching techniques If just thinking about the laws of physics makes your head spin, this hands-on, friendly guide gets you out of the black hole and sheds light on this often-intimidating subject.
