Reader Reviews

Illustrated Dictionary Of Physics
My name is Apollonia and I am 14. I just did my SATs this year and this book helped me study for my science exam. It was really helpful and it increased my understanding much better than other books. I am glad that I used this book because it helped me reach my target level which was level 5 and I managed to achieve a level 6. I would recommend this book to all pupils in secondary school.
