if your child's school is using shinglee math, there are many questions inside for practice....but there is an accompanying workbook.

for science, you may want to look at science assessment books by GLM or wisemann. same goes for history and geography. reading intensively is important but a student doesn't know what he/she knows or will be tested.

Just that the textbooks and workbooks do not provide detailed answers.
For those who need detailed answers very much, can take a look at this Sec 1 book.

Thank you. I will check out GLM and Wisemann tomorrow.
Re. the bolded, did you mean that a student is not sure that what she studied will be tested?

Thank you. I am not worried for Maths, but rather Science, History and Geography. I have not seen any exam papers online for Hist/Geog so I don't know what sort of questions are asked and what sort of answers are expected.

Can you please share some specific titles he found useful?
are you referring to o level?
because the syllabus has just been changed, again :roll:
I was referring to lower secondary history and geography assessment books. But thanks for the heads-up about the change in O level syllabi! :)

hi nansk,
the assessment title gives an idea what kind of questions will be tested for history/geography.
questions like 'who founded singapura?' 'who is parameswara?' for the sec 1s to be, the textbooks are like a storybook. regarding the earlier post in bold, you are right - the student will not know that what she studied will be tested.
