Recommendation for Sec 1 books

Postby jarodjj » Tue Nov 04, 2014 4:50 am

Hi All,

Anyone can help to suggest assessment books or guidebooks for Sec 1 (2014) Geography and History? Results for both subjects is borderline fail.
Student going to Sec 2 in 2015. Want to buy books to allow him to revise or do.

a parent mentioned there is a new syllabus for geography/history. you may want to wait a while...but i recommend this publisher GLM.

I do not know whether I should buy.

I am a tutor myself. However, I do not teach Geography and History. The parent want me to buy to allow her son to study.

Janet_ lee88, what the students learnt for sec one history and geography are not going to test them again in sec two, only the ans skill, is that right?

So can safely chuck the texts and guidebooks? DD and I packed her bookshelf yesterday and the history and geography texts and guides are still on her shelf.

sec 1 and 2 history/geography textbooks will be on different topics.
for sec 2 history this year, it is on Singapore nation building...so for those going to sec 2 next year (2015), you can safely put aside sec 1 humanities text/guide books.

Dear All, could you please advice what is the syllabus for the Sec 1 subjects (at least the core subjects).

Thanks
