This BrightRED Study Guide provides the content to the SQA CfE Higher Physics syllabus in a concise and attractive format. Each double-page spread presents a new topic, key ideas are illustrated in colour and key terms are highlighted to emphasise information you need to understand. The graphical presentations allow experimental concepts to be understood through visual learning.

The book helps students re-inforce and extend their knowledge and understanding of the concepts of physics. By using the worked examples, practicing problems and following the Things to do and think about features, you will improve your theoretical and problem-solving skills. As students progress through the course, theory and concepts are based on, and illustrated by, experimental activities in the Study Guide.
