It is a known fact that working with mind maps helps learners understand concepts and organise their ideas better. Mind mapping also improves our retention and enhance thinking and learning skills. A-Level Physics Mind Maps is written for students who are taking the Cambridge A-Level Physics examinations. It is arranged in order of topics laid out according to the Cambridge syllabus. The contents have been organised into concise notes to facilitate quick and easy revision for students. Each topic is then further divided into smaller sub-topics from which the main concepts are distilled. It is around these main concepts that the mind maps are built upon. Students can use the contents of this book to systematise and compartmentalise their understanding of each topic. In each mind map, the flow of the thought processes from one concept to another is shown by arrow connectors. With these connectors, the links between concepts and how they integrate to form the larger ideas of each topic should become clearer.

Key features
• Key concepts are sifted out from each topic and brought to light, so that students can zoom straight into them, and derive deeper concepts subsequently.
• To aid students in their understanding, this book offers concise explanations, along with diagrams and graphs to enhance understanding. It’ll be a great complement to students’ existing school materials.
• Via the mind maps and arrow connectors, the flow of thought in going from one concept to another is shared in this book. It is also through the mind maps that students can observe the integration of concepts that forms the foundation of each topic.

Many students often feel lost as to how to analyse and learn from model essays effectively. This series of Model Essays by Themes strive to be different from other essays books: they aim to help students not merely to increase their exposure and understanding of various GP issues and themes, but also to learn how to improve their language skills through examining and analysing various essays in the books. At the end of each essay, there is a section entitled ‘How to Make Use of This Essay’ where students can take time to extract useful content, writing techniques and language skills from the essay they have just read. They will be guided in preparing for the two key aspects that are assessed for GP Paper 1 (Essay):

Content: Picking out points, arguments, counter-arguments, examples, statistics etc.

Language: Picking out useful words, phrases, connectors, transitional phrases, etc.

This short but important exercise trains students to build their own repository of useful GP resources from other future essays they come across. In addition, due to the wide-ranging perspectives on various issues of the day, the essays in this book deliberately take on different (and sometimes opposing) stances on the same issue. This is so that students can be exposed to a diversity of viewpoints which would hopefully help them to think deeper about their own positions regarding different topics and themes in GP.

A-Level Economics: The Example Book

Price:
SGD 14.90

If there is one thing Economics students tend to lack, it is examples. Students spend their time memorising and digesting Economics concepts, which is a prerequisite for doing well. To actually help answers shine, students need to use relevant examples. This is because every student will have the same access to the theories and concepts, but not everyone will spend the effort and time to accumulate examples and use them appropriately when crafting their answers. This book will serve as a good start for students to grow their own store of examples, with a wealth of them, all neatly categorised by topic and concept. The other reason why students should read examples is that they help them to understand abstract concepts better. When students struggle to comprehend how a particular theory works, an example will come in handy. Lastly, examples also help students to see how to bridge the gap between concept and reality. When students appreciate how concepts work in the real world after they have read the examples, they become more adept at Case Studies and Essays, where application is essential to doing well.
