Topmark KCSE Revision Home Science is a comprehensive revision textbook which fully covers the Secondary Home Science Course as outlined in the current syllabus. It is principally written and designed for candidates who are preparing for the KCSE Home Science Examination in the 8-4-4 system of education. The book is written in a comprehensible and concise language. Chapter ten (10) titled Important Terminologies defines key Home Science concepts, principles and terms. The aim is to help the candidate to revise and study the subject with much ease. The book comprises sixteen (16) chapters. The first nine chapters provide short comprehensive revision notes on the topics provided in the current Secondary Home Science Syllabus. Relevant illustrations have been used to enhance the learning process. Descriptive captions and clear labels to the illustrations stand out clearly. Within the text are Revision Questions covering the theoretical concepts taught in the preceding subtopics. The questions are meant to assist the candidate in quick revision of the subtopics. The current format of the KCSE Home Science Course examination provides for Papers 1, 2 and 3. Paper 1 tests Home Science Theory. Papers 2 and 3 are Practical Papers testing Clothing Construction and Food and Nutrition respectively. Model Sample Papers in all the three papers have been provided in chapters 11 to 13 of this book. The questions measure up to those set in the KCSE Home Science examination. The questions in Paper 1 test the candidate's understanding of all the theoretical concepts in the Secondary Home Science Course. Papers 2 and 3 test the application of the concepts. A candidate should use the sample papers to gauge his or her ability to tackle similar questions in the KCSE Home Science examination. Chapters 15 to 16 provide answers to all the model sample papers. Other than teachers of the Secondary Home Science Course and candidates preparing for the KCSE Home Science Examination, tutors and students in Colleges offering Home Economics or other industrial courses such as catering, accommodation, hotel management, interior decoration, beauty, healthcare, clothing and nutrition will also find this book valuable.
