Above extract from Preface of Lower Secondary Science Perfect Guide (reproduced with the permission of the publishers).

The Perfect Guides A and B for Lower Secondary Science are study guides for students. Book A includes the topics Scientific Endeavor and Physics, Book B includes the topics Chemistry and Biology. They include links to the Lower Secondary Science Matters Texts, but do not follow the same sequence.

Our recommendation:

The Perfect Guides A and B for Lower Secondary Science are study guides for students. Book A includes the topics Scientific Endeavor and Physics, Book B includes the topics Chemistry and Biology. They include links to the Lower Secondary Science Matters Texts, but do not follow the same sequence. You would have to use parts of both A and B of the Perfect Guides with each of the Lower Secondary Science textbooks A and B if using them in conjunction with the textbooks. Each topic contains thorough study notes, including learning objectives, common errors, and glossary of terms, and many worked out questions with extensive analysis of the answers. Each topic is followed by a test containing both multiple choice questions and structured questions. There is an assessment test for each of the four topics. There are answers at the back. They are best used as intended, as study guides. Teachers could use them as a source of additional explanations, glossary of terms, and questions that can be discussed in class and may find the study notes helpful. Homeschools could use the tests for assessment if removed from the book.
