Bill Bolton is well known for his successful student texts on the science of materials. In this book he offers a thorough introduction to the topic, engaging students' interest and developing their understanding through a clear text, solved problems,
questions (with answers), and more extended assignments. A section of multiple choice questions at the end of each chapter provides practice for the GNVQ end of unit test.
Materials and their Uses has been written to cover the Advanced GNVQ mandatory unit and the London modular physics A-level unit on solid materials. It will also be suitable for students following other physics A-level courses. This book replaces Bill
Bolton's Materials, which is recommended as a student text on the London Board's book list.
