Get Ahead in ... CHEMISTRY

By Tom Whipple
Illustrated by James Davies

Get Ahead in Chemistry covers the essentials for GCSE science in a book you can start and finish – without falling asleep in the middle!

Tom Whipple, Science Editor at the Times, covers all the core topics for GCSE Chemistry in a witty, accessible narrative: atomic structure and the periodic table, the properties of matter, chemical and energy changes, organic chemistry, chemical analysis and the atmosphere. Each section includes a bullet-summary and, for curious minds and clever-clogs, bonus mini-chapters exploring fascinating but extra-curricular science... Everything from entropy to the laws of thermodynamics. Focusing on the world's very silliest science, this is one of the first in a fresh, funny and much-needed series of study-aids.

  • A fresh, funny and fascinating alternative to liven up revision; publishing in the run-up to GCSE mocks.
  • Along with Physics and Maths, Chemistry has a reputation for being one of the hardest subjects at GCSE – this book should reassure anxious students and parents alike.
  • Highly illustrated throughout by rising star James Davies.
