A STARiser Minamrc 21 Jan 2013
During the final months approaching my final IGCSE physics exam, I had almost lost hope in getting a decent grade in it. As an attempt to maybe get things right at the end, took myself to a bookstore to find some sort of physics book to help me out, as I browsed through this one book (IGCSE Physics Simplified, the one being reviewed) struck me. The author's name seemed very familiar, realising that the name of the author was also the name of a physics teacher in my school! (Mr. Akbar teaches me this year for AS level physics) So, with no hesitation I picked it up, and started using it as my main study resource for physics. From day 1 I felt more confident and able in the field of IGCSE physics, going through questions like a hot knife through butter. The fact that Mr. Akbar structured the syllabus in his book so effectively and simply is the key to this book's beauty, and it seems that 99% of educational books miss this element, which for me is what set Mr. Akbar's book appart from all other books out there. Against all odds, I found myself with an A* at the end of the course, and to be very honest I thank this book for it.
Very Helpful Mohammad Alherz 19 Jan 2013
I really thought it was a great book. It made me get an A* on my Physics IGCSE class last year. Without this book I dont think I would've gotten an A* . Thank You Mr Akbar!!
Excellent IGCSE Edexcel/Cambridge Physics Exam Resource! Naser 19 Jan 2013

- Alhassan Alqabandi 15 Apr 2020
summarized and contained information. Clear and detailed diagrams as well as calculations examples are included. Keywords are very well shown to help you achieve the grades you want! The book follows a specific scheme that is easy to digest based on each topic a different color page, with different fonts that helps differentiate different points.The book itself contains each and every topic required in the IGCSE syllabus. I highly recommend students that are struggling with physics to purchase this book. As an IGCSE physics student that used to have difficulties in that subject, my best decision was to get this book as it clearly made big changes in a short period of time and I was really fascinated with my results and how much I had improved since the start. Don’t hesitate, you won’t regret it!
