Multitouch handbooks for physics available on iBooks

Interactive and media rich resources for students studying physics A-Level. The ideal aid to learning physics: a reference throughout your course and helpful revision resource in the run up to exams. They contain content adapted from OCR’s Physics A specification (H158 & H558) to provide an overview of the essential content for the whole course. Additionally there are sections on key graphs and practical applications of physics – with quality diagrams to illustrate. Perfect for any student taking OCR physics, but great for other exam boards too. The specification overviews are grouped according to OCR's assessed units for A-level Physics A (i.e. G481, G482, G483 etc). There are also sections on the mathematical requirements for the course, help with transposing equations and links to physics resources that encourage deeper independent learning (often beyond the scope of the A-Level) and foster a greater interest in physics.
