Perfect Guide 'O' Level Science Chemistry Structured Questions

Author: Chen Ling Kwong, Publisher: Marshall Cavendish

Perfect Guide 'O' Level Science (Chemistry) Structured Questions is written to help students master GCE 'O' Level Science (Chemistry) more effectively and efficiently. To achieve this, it is specifically designed to be a useful and essential tool to supplement learning material for this subject, in particular, the textbook Discover Chemistry (2nd Edition).


Close adherence to MOE's latest GCE 'O' Level Science (Chemistry) Syllabus
Changes to the syllabus have been incorporated into the book. More handling of information and problem solving are included according to the latest assessment objectives.

Levelling-up problem solving process
Questions in each topic are presented with increasing level of difficulty. Easier questions that require direct application to explicit problems pertaining to the chapter are first presented. As students work through these, they will gradually progress to questions that are no longer directly explicit but require assimilation of concepts fom previous topics.

Comprehensive answer key
The answer key provided is designed to be comprehensive, efficient and effective for two purposes. The first id for students to gain a meaningful understanding of Science (Physics) and secondary, to enable the students to gain full credit during examination.

Marking system for student self-assessment
All questions come with marks. This provides students with a more exact measure of the weightage of each question and thus enables them to analyse their own performance and areas of need, be it in calculation or explanation-based type questions.

Self-help for challenging concepts like textbook links and exam tips
It is understandable that during the course of learning, students may need refresher of knowledge or skills from previous topics or evena guide as to ehere they will be able to locate further help on a particular concept. Problems that students typically find especially challenging come with EXAN TIPS that further explain how the concept is applied such that the problem can be solved. Textbook LINKS that point to where concepts can be found in the text, Discover Chemistry (2nd Edition). are provided throughout the book.
