Controlling revision

It's fine to fill revision time with "fun and games", but sometimes you need to return to basics with some classic exam practice. However, Edward Clarvis has found a middle ground: a colourful, handy revision booklet for GCSE systems and controls.

What is it?

A collection of resources pulled together in a professionally presented guide, with exam-style questions covering:

- power supplies;

- voltage regulators;

- thyristors;

- astable and monostable circuits;

- comparators.

The booklet is broken down into chunks, with each page focusing on a specific sub-topic. It has clear diagrams and lots of space for pupils to write their answers.

How is it useful?

It is helpful for revision homework or as a mock exam. Alternatively, ask pupils in groups to tackle problems and present their answers to the class.

Access the booklet at TES Resources or via Clarvis' website: www.clarvis.co.uk.
