Packed with concise yet thorough notes, GCSE Physical Education: A Revision Guide is the only book that GCSE students and teachers will ever need for exam success. Written by an experienced GCSE PE teacher, it is the only revision guide that includes “Quick Test” questions and actual past examination questions (with answers) from all four exam boards. This feature enables students to confirm their understanding of key topics throughout the course.
The book is organised into four parts. Part I, “The Human Body,” outlines the basic structure of the human body and its key systems as well as the effect of exercise on those systems. Part II, “Training and Fitness,” covers the importance of fitness, training's effect on fitness, and common injuries—their causes and how to treat them. Part III, “Coaching and Performance,” shows how athletes learn skills and how this knowledge can be applied to teaching. Part IV, “Sport in Society,” examines the effect society has on sport. The text explores the application of rules, governing organisations, finance and facilities, drug use, politics, race and gender.
Each chapter begins with a mind map, a key revision tool that helps to summarise the main learning points of the chapter. Each chapter closes with a “quick test” and examination board questions that give readers crucial insights into the type of answers required in their examinations. The book adopts a building-block approach that allows readers to expand basic knowledge as they work through the book.
Acting as a classroom resource and providing novel ways to teach the subject, as well as being an ongoing course guide, homework and revision aid, GCSE Physical Education: A Revision Guide is an invaluable tool for helping students and teachers alike to successfully complete the GCSE syllabus.
