We’ve completely revised Heinemann Chemistry to be fully aligned with the 2016–2021 VCE Science Study Design. The content provides an exact match to the new study designs and the layout and design incorporates many features that assist student learning. The authors have updated the student books with the very latest developments and applications of chemistry, presented in an Australian context.

Reader+ gives you access to the eBook version of your Student Book as well as bonus multimedia assets. It’s built to work online and offline, making content easily available anytime, anywhere, in every school. It works on PC and Mac, Android and iOS.

Learners can quickly navigate through their eBooks, read them, take notes and save bookmarks. Reader+ integrates multimedia (audio/video) and interactive activities that enhance and extend the reading experience.

The access code will give 27 months access to the Reader+ eBook from the date of activation.
