I never used them for 1/2, and I personally wouldn't. This is my opinion, but I find that what schools teach for 1/2 units really varies compared to 3/4, so I don't think the notes would be that helpful as schools are really different in their content. I would recommend finding free online notes from here, and using those to see if any of them can help you.

Good luck with your exam.

I found that 1/2 notes super helpful for bio! As it was my first ever 1/2 subject, I was really glad to have access to as many different resources as possible.



However, the body systems your school does in U1 AoS2 will vary (meaning that there are no notes about any systems in the AN book). The specific genetic diseases your school looks ay will also vary (in U2 AoS2) meaning that the AN notes can only do so much for you there.
AoS3 (both units) is completely run by your school, so there are no notes about any of that either.

For everything they did contain, they were quite brief, as it is just a summary. However, the language was super easy to understand so they were just what I needed to consolidate things in my head.



I think that with that information, you should make your own choice as to whether or not you think they'd benefit you. ;D

Also, if you are considering getting a couple of books, have you looked at EdUnlimited (where you get access to all the course notes and topic tests).

the cage is shattered
the songbird sings
of her freedom once more

soars in blue
basks in the light
leaving nothing
but notes behind

she is never going
back in that cage
