The AQA GCSE Biology Student’s Book provides complete coverage of the knowledge and ideas for GCSE Biology for AQA, with a strong emphasis throughout on understanding how science works.

The examples and activities focus on everyday contexts and real-life applications that will motivate and engage students. Questions for homework and exam practice allow students to apply their knowledge and to progress their skills in areas such as enquiry and data handling. The activities help students prepare for practical and investigative skills assignments.
