Exam question section is excellent, this saves so much time with everyone struggling to formulate their own exam paper and mark scheme… Previous experience has taught me there is nothing so relevant and time saving available.
– S Parker, Teacher and Independent Reviewer

The extended content will be an invaluable time saving tool for NQT’s and experienced teachers alike. The resource has accurate content that has been thoroughly researched and is an excellent addition to the revision guide previously produced. I have been teaching on the G154 specification since September 2008. I have used the zig zag resources since they have been available and on average my High Grades for this unit are between 70-80%. I think that the Author of these resources must put so much time and effort into developing this pack and the Revision Guide and they should be commended for the support they provide to not only NQT’s but also experienced teachers and examiners who value it’s publication each year.
