Thanks Mike Shaw! =]
Put very simply, and its good for clearing up knowledge in aspects of the GCSE biology syllabus. Unbelievable how much detail he fits in in ten mins... and in podcast form its good for on the go. Recommended for busy people who find it hard to fit in revision!
Thanks Mike Shaw
Put very simply and excellent for revision, with excersises you can do yourself!
Thanks very much!
This is an excellent podcast for helping with biology revision, covering a very wide range of topics in a manner that is very easy to understand. It has certainly helped me very much with my GCSE revision, and I would definitely recommend it to anybody else revising for biology GCSE. Thanks a lot Mr. Shaw!
