Which books worth buying for secondary science PGCE

    Are there any books you would particularly recommend buying before starting a science PGCE? I picked up the books I needed for my FE training secondhand on Ebay and Abe books and I thought I might keep an eye out for any useful PGCE books going cheap. Are there any books you found particularly useful for writing assignments or books with useful tips for planning/differentiating/assessing etc?

    Hi Rugbylovingmmum

    What subject are you studying? Is your course primary or secondary?

    Your uni should provide you with a good reading list but happy to give suggestions if you're studing secondary, and in particular maths

    Thanks. It's a secondary science PGCE. I'm sure I'll get a reading list before the course starts but it's good to know which books people have found useful and I can start looking out for secondhand copies.

    There are some generic behaviour management books such as Getting the +++++++ to behave" which are worth reading- do check with your library ( if you have one) to save having to buy everything- most booklists are only recommendations so check what you must buy rather than what is desirable.
    If there is a bookstore or students union bookshop on the campus visit there to get an idea of the texts in use.
    Otherwise a lot of sources are online and are article based
