Berry Berry Good (BBG) SPM Chemistry Books (For Form 4 and Form 5 Malaysian SPM students)
1) Spotlight SPM Chemistry (2009). Ooi Yong Seang & Darric Lim. Pan Asia Publication Sdn. Bhd. Selangor. Malaysia.
Berry Berry Teacher highly recommends Spotlight SPM Chemistry. This is a BBG book that young berries must get! This book compiles most of the important notes and key points for its readers. The value-added stuff would be the super concise notes that are provided in the first few pages. Berry berry useful for revision. This BBG book is a newly-printed book and Mr Ooi, the author, is a GC (Guru Cemerlang) teacher. Besides that, it has cute icons too!
2) Focus Super (2008). Eng Nguan Hong, Lim Eng Wah & Lim Yean Ching. Penerbitan Pelangi Sdn. Bhd. Selangor. Malaysia.
This book consists most of the discussions that are stated in the Chemistry textbook. It is written by the author of the textbook. So if young berries want to find the correct answer for the textbook, you may find it here in this book!
3) Memory Mastery through Mind Maps and Diagrams Chemistry SPM (2007). Hafiz Ahmad & Lim Chia Nee. PNI Neuron (M) Sdn. Bhd. Selangor. Malaysia.
This is the only full-coloured mind map SPM reference book. Berry Berry Teacher likes this book berry berry much! This book will help young berries to understand Chemistrys concept in a berry berry easy way! If you are a person that likes mind maps (diagram-based), this is the book that Berry Berry Teacher would recommend you to try out. Try to check it out in your school library or get it from your senior if you cannot find it.
4) Longman Essential Chemistry SPM (2009). Yeap Tok Kheng. Pearson Malaysia Sdn. Bhd. Selangor. Malaysia. / Longman Essential Chemistry Form 4 (2009). Yeap Tok Kheng. Pearson Malaysia Sdn. Bhd. Selangor. Malaysia. / Longman Essential Chemistry Form 5 (2009). Yeap Tok Kheng. Pearson Malaysia Sdn. Bhd. Selangor. Malaysia.
Berry Berry Teacher would like to recommend you this series of Longman reference books if you prefer bilingual (English and Malay language) text. This is the only publisher that still prints bilingual reference books. It is written by the textbook author with the latest syllabus.
5) Success Chemistry SPM (2009). Tan Yin Toon, Loh Wai Leng & Tan On Tin. Oxford Fajar. Selangor. Malaysia.
