  • The later date is given to indicate the latest date by which you should expect the resource to be dispatched.

These dispatch dates may occasionally be moved back, in which case we will notify you. Conversely, publications are often delivered earlier than the dates shown.

Practical Skills for AS/A2 AQA Geography

A remarkably detailed resource covering the entire AQA Skills Checklist for the new specification.

What makes this resource special is that it covers so much – there are so many different kinds of graphs and maps explained, with examples of how each is used in Geography.

Incredibly comprehensive… I really like the way it's not just information but also activities to encourage learning of the skills. The data used in the different graphs all relates to the AQA units… Useful hints and tips for not just producing graphs, but also interpreting them effectively… Some of the harder skills are reinforced by short activities within the text, which is very helpful."

V Burgess, Geography Teacher and Independent Reviewer

Very wide range of maps and graphs, including: line graphs, bar graphs, pie charts, kite & radial diagrams, measures of central tendency & dispersion, correlation & comparative tests (e.g. Mann-Whitney U), OS maps, town centre maps, weather maps, GIS, use of data, use of ICT, annotation of diagrams, best fit lines, drawing conclusions from results, satellite images, cross sections, population pyramids, using maps, hydrographs, significance levels, use of overlays, scatter graphs…

Tried & tested!
  • Written by an experienced teacher & examiner!
  • Exam-style questions for best opportunity for top grades!
  • Excellent for visual learners!
