Physics, like its counterpart Chemistry, has one thing basically incorrect with the packaging, or rather the information displayed. It is not up to O-level standard. Maybe 12-to 14-year-olds will appreciate this but not 16-year-olds - that is, if they wish to pass. Apart from that, slightly more effort has gone into Physics; the questions are not as ambiguous, not quite as many spelling errors, and it actually accepts my answers (if they are correct, of course).
Physics has a nine-option menu to choose from. Each option has a notes section as with Chemistry. They are, however, slightly more substantial. If you don't wish to read the notes, you can go straight into the question section.
There is a nice suprise awaiting those that opt for one of the sets of questions. Included with many of the questions arc small diagrams related to the subject it makes all the difference. The style of answering and marking questions is identical to those from Chemistry.
Again, once all the questions have been answered, there is nothing more to be gained from the package. It would have been quite simple to include extra questions that could be loaded up whenever required. In that way, the user would aquire a much broader knowledge of the topic at hand.
What would have been nice was a graph showing how well you had done after answering the questions from all the topics, possibly giving you an average mark at the same instant. Slowly but surely the educational market is coming to its senses. If you compare the titles reviewed here with those back in the April issue of AA - well, there can be no comparison; real progress is being made.
