A brand new edition of our Advanced Higher Physics Study Guide. The perfect study companion to this course.


ISBN: 978-1-84948-339-1, 96pp

Fully up-to-date with the very latest SQA course changes. This New Edition covers the syllabus for the CfE Advanced Higher Physics course and should complement the coursework done in class. The book will help students succeed in the final exam by presenting the subject arrangements in an attractive and concise format.

Each sub-topic in the course arrangements is presented in a double-page spread making the book ideal both for revision and self-study. Every double-page spread covers the CfE Advanced Higher Physics content in a logical and accessible way, and makes full use of graphics and colour illustrations to support your learning. As well as containing the mandatory course information, worked examples demonstrate how key physics relationships are used to solve numerical problems. There are also exercises for you to try with answers available on the free BrightRed Digital Zone. Examinable derivations are included in the text where appropriate.

Each double-page spread finishes with a Things to do and think about section designed to extend and expand your knowledge and interest in physics and its applications. The treatment of uncertainties at Advanced Higher level is covered in three double-page spreads. This treatment can apply to all units in the course. There is also advice on the production of the project report and there are Appendices with guidance on open-ended questions and on understanding accuracy and precision in Advanced Higher Physics.
