Too exp, more than 3x the cost of other good books...
The same amount is more than enough to get books for different objectives such as FAQ (quick revision), Process Skills (sub-topics practices), Challenging Sc/Challenging Exam Papers (rev practices)

Pangyx,
Grateful for your lead. Any P5 or P6 science instructions for Booklet B? Think most kids need guidance in answering Booklet B questions.

I'm looking for specific guidance how pupils can be guided in articulating science keywords & expressing science concepts accurately in long sentence structure in doing PSLE science Booklet B. Any YouTube available?

Found this in Popular Book Shop. Do you agree with their classification of the assessment books?

Are these good?

Seems quite a number don't like Daily Dose, me too.
The last 2 are better than Daily Dose. :smile:

Daily dose is too simple and doesn't meet school tests requirements even on a daily basis.

Thanks bestwishes for the response and your contribution to the assessment books around. I remember reading your comments and recommendations.

Had never considered Daily Dose because I need something more challenging (which brings me to another point later) and also, my kid is not that disciplined to do a bit every day :lol: He prefers "buffet style" when he is in the mood.


The point about challenging stuff - I was surprised to see "Ultimate Science Workbook" being categorised as Advanced stuff under Popular Book Shop's recommendation. Shouldn't it be a staple? Or maybe because Popular only has two category, so it must be considered "advanced". If I need something more challenging than Ultimate Science series, what can I consider?
