Practice Papers for SQA Exams Higher Biology

By Graham Moffatt, Billy Dickson

Leckie & Leckie

4 stars out of 5 stars

The three practice papers in this book correspond closely to the organisation and style of actual papers. An additional feature is a 'Topic Index' with the questions grouped by syllabus unit so that the student can concentrate on a particular topic. Also adding value are the 'Helpful tips' in the answers section that emphasise key points, exam technique and common mistakes to avoid.

The answer scheme is comprehensive but has a number of errors, particularly in graph questions. Some other answers are likely to provoke lively controversy in staffrooms.

The book is reasonably priced at £5.99 and would be a useful acquisition for any student looking for more exam practice in addition to the actual papers from previous years. Tutors would find this a helpful source of novel material and the 'Topic Index' would be particularly useful for finding questions relating to particular topics.
