Biology Examination 2 VCE Unit 4
Biology Exam 2 VCE Unit 4, Third edition is an invaluable tool for Year 12 students preparing to sit the mid-year VCE Biology exam. It is specifically designed to address the latest 2006-2012 VCE Study Design. It contains nine practice exams for VCE Biology Unit 4 (20062012 Study Design). A separate, comprehensive solutions CD is included with the book so teachers can control students access to answers. Features include: Graduated difficulty the resource is divided into tests that gradually increase in length, content and difficulty. Use it throughout the semester, not just before the actual exam No teacher or student preparation is required students write into the book Bonus detachable exam included produced on perforated paper, it allows for easy tear-out and can be used as a formal assessment task Great value designed and priced to be used by each individual student Separate solutions CD so teachers can control access The solutions CD provides comprehensive and detailed solutions for each examinable Area of Study.
