Book Review: Ace Your Secondary 1 Geography

Secondary school may be daunting for many secondary one students. For one thing, they now have to take a lot more subjects as compared to primary school. Under Humanities, students will have to take subjects such as Geography, which is a content-heavy subject that requires students to have specific skills such as map reading and data analysis.

While this may sound like a lot, students can find the additional revision and practice they need in Ace Your Secondary 1 Geography by Maria Nile. This book is an excellent resource for students who are new to Geography and need a helping hand to ease them into the subject. The notes and practices within aim to equip students with content knowledge and geographical skills in order for them to excel in the subject.
