“I was impressed by the comprehensive nature of the resource. I liked the way in which the initial questions were followed by a series of more probing points and critical viewpoints so that students are encouraged to develop a more in-depth response… I particularly liked the fact that there were essays from each section of the exam paper and there were different ideas about essay planning which is always a tricky area… Activities are linked particularly effectively to the different assessment objectives. Well geared up for the AQA A syllabus [with] a solid understanding of the demands of the AOs.” – C Webb, Head of Sixth Form and Independent Reviewer
