The only DP Chemistry resource developed with the IB to accurately match the new 2014 syllabus for both SL and HL, this revised edition gives you unrivalled support for the new concept-based approach to learning, the Nature of science.. Understanding, applications and skills are integrated in every topic, alongside TOK links and real-world connections to truly drive independent inquiry. Assessment support straight from the IB includes practice questions and worked examples in each topic, alongside support for the Internal Assessment. Truly aligned with the IB philosophy, this Course Book gives unparalleled insight and support at every stage.

`Thanks a ton for bringing out such an informative and concept based chem book for the new curriculum. The book, like a pyramid has worked towards making a solid foundation and then focused on higher concepts/skills.' IB Chemistry Teacher, India

`We were planning on ordering another publisher's resources but many of our IB teachers attended workshops and came back asking for Oxford. The quality of the text and online support package is the reason.' Ron Patrick, Head of Science, International School of Panama
