“I like this resource, it is small sections of the syllabus addressed by a variety of different length questions which is very useful for students for revision and for teachers at the end of a topic. Text book has many questions but this is splits down into sections and has mark schemes as well which the textbook does not have so this is a useful addition. The questions are slightly easier than exam questions in that they are a little more direct rather than being obscure like exam questions often are. This means that this resource is useful for using before students tackle exam questions.
I liked that each chapter was one or two topics so that students could focus on one area at a time using it to test if they have understood. I liked the variety of questions, there is a good mixture of calculations, definitions, short answer questions, extended questions and essays. All of these are tested in the exam so students gets a good amount of practice at these questions. I like that the data is all up-to-date as now a lot of resources are quite a few years old. So much has changed in the economy over the last few years, it’s good to see resources which are addressing these issues. I also like that at the top of the page it specifies which area of the syllabus questions are from.
This resource is good for students learning as suggested above. They can use it at the end of the topic for revision. It would be very useful for teachers to use as a topic test when they have completed topic. They would also be useful for use before exams as revision. The answers mean students can use this for independent learning, or teachers can set it as homework to mark. The answers are reasonably detailed so that on the whole students will be able to see where they have gone wrong and what they need to do to improve. This means that the resource can be used to enhance learning. It can also be used for independent study if a teacher is absent or they need to set some work over the holidays as there is enough guidance in the mark scheme for the students to be able to self mark.” – H James, Tutor & Peer Reviewer
