Product Information

Why invest / encourage your students or their parents to invest in APT’s Essential Knowledge Handbooks?

The Handbooks are divided into 5 main sections and 19 sub-sections, which match the topics and sub-topics of the Theme 2 Specification.

At the beginning of each sub-section there is a summary of what students need to learn.  These summaries, and the explanations that follow, take into account Edexcel’s specification, content guidance, scheme of work and sample assessment material (published at the time of writing) – to ensure all examinable subject content is covered.

Explanations are sufficiently detailed to enable students to grasp the essential theory required with minimum teacher assistance.

Essential Knowledge Checklists’ are provided at the end of each sub-section (sub-topic).  These comprise a wide range of exam-style questions which students can work through and answer using the in-depth explanations provided, or which teachers can set as homework, or as more formal tests in class.

Key terms are signposted throughout, and a detailed index is provided at the end of the Handbook – to enable students to quickly access the information they require.
