The resource matches very well with the specification especially the required practicals

The resource is very good, some excellent ideas. [Activities] would make parts of the course accessible for more students and many of them promote a deep thinking.

L James, Teacher & Peer Reviewer

An excellent resource for the GCSE and any L2 Physics equivalent course. A very good range of starter and plenary ideas and questions and which covers the required specification in Physics.

Like the arrangement of the questions and the different types of activities included. Definitions are tested well and numerical questions are well written. Specific situations have been used in questions which makes the learners think.
