‘I was consistently impressed by the lucid style sustained throughout, and the clarity of the guide. The chapter summaries were excellent and quotations well-chosen. The ‘active learning’ questions were very well-judged and do lead to independent thinking and research. The sample essays and advice on essay writing and how to incorporate the AOs are extremely good. I also think that the essay titles set at various intervals across the resource are excellent.’ – A Stanton, Teacher, Independent Reviewer

The analysis is accurate, thorough and thought-provoking (plenty of scope for AO1). This resource covers a great deal of information that would provide students with great freedom when it comes to the exam questions – they would be thoroughly prepared. really impressive activities. They are wide-ranging in terms of getting students to think of the wide range of material that AQA wants them to consider.
