The International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) is conceived and conducted by Cambridge University at the high school level. Unlike other school leaving certifications, the IGCSE certification is given for each individual subject.
One of the subjects that the student can opt for is Chemistry. Cambridge IGCSE Chemistry Workbook provides thorough practice for the students, covering the full syllabus for the subject. It tests all the skills necessary for the exam.
The IGCSE exams tests not just the students understanding of the concept but also tests their ability to interpret information and their problem solving skills. It then tests their experimental and investigative skills. The emphasis of the exam is more on the advanced skills rather than just the comprehension of concepts.
It tests the student's ability to apply the theory they have learnt to solve problems and to conduct experiments for verification of the concepts. The exercises in the book test all these skills in the students and help them sharpen their knowledge and their capacity to apply their knowledge in practical situations.
The book follows the syllabus for the IGCSE Exam, and has the same chapter breakdown, making it easy for the students to progress through the workbook in a logical manner. However, the students need not follow the chapters in the given order. They can choose to workout the exercises in any order they want.
The chapters begin with small sections that provide essential definitions and required formulas needed to tackle the exercises in that chapter. After this come the different kinds of exercises to provide a full workout for the students. Cambridge IGCSE Chemistry Workbook is endorsed by Cambridge and can be used alongside the prescribed course material when the students are preparing to take the exam.
