I haven't a clue what textbooks my DS used and he got A* in all those. Not sure that the textbook is important as most teachers will use a range of resources - I have Grey's Anatomy sitting on my shelf - huge tome, actually learnt more from the much much smaller Essential Anatomy ....

Paramjeet, I would ask your childs current science teachers at their school. I am sure they would give you a bibliography of appropriate literature for the aforementioned subjects. :wink:

What about the other core subjects Paramjeet, or is it just the sciences you are interested in?

In defence of OP. Maybe he/she is trying to brush up
Knowledge. I know I had looked for books when I was helping DC with Chem as I was rusty and had no idea what was in the syllabus.

Some use this for common entrance prep http://www.galorepark.co.uk/product/sch ... ook-2.html but it is very dry.

This too is good for KS3 science revision
http://www.docbrown.info/

The science is heavily skewed towards "how stuff works"

DS1 never opened his textbooks in Key stage 3. Sorry I can't remember what they were. When it came to revision he preferred to use BBC bitesize http://www.bbc.co.uk/schools/ks3bitesize/science/


Thanks for the docbrown link, that looks good.
