  • 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.

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (3504)
"It was comprehensive and detailed and would provide very good support for individual study. The contextual information was very effective and is a particularly important feature for Lit1A. Tess is an important text for both Lit1A and LitA3 but can be rather big for some students. I felt that this resource would enable and support those students to engage with the text with more confidence." C Allison, Head of English and Ind. Reviewer
"Very useful as provides additional examples of questions for use in exam prep. This was important for us as there have only been a few actual exams for the new GCSE and this helped with additional resources. Time and effort has been taken to ensure that the resources are in the same format as the real exam." S Meggett, Satisfied Customer (Head of English)
'A very well set out and well researched resource that acts as a very strong framework for the study of this text. Well-written summaries with excellent questions attached that are aimed at analysis. The Points of Note that go with each chapter is a useful tool for the teacher to frame a lesson. The end of reading mini-essay questions are well thought out and will aid the recapping and revision of the book. The sections on Themes and Character really set out exercise options that will suit the motivated and active student.'R Hill, English Lecturer, Independent Reviewer
'This resource is of an excellent quality - it contains a high level of detail, particularly as far as themes and characters are concerned. The writer has included a lot of questions throughout the resource that are very useful. There is a high level of detail on context and literary style / criticism - this is great to develop background understanding. I also feel that the personal response sections at the end of character section are very useful and will aid students' to think of their own opinions and interpretations.'S Evans, English Teacher, Independent Reviewer
'A thorough and useful guide to the novel. The sections on genre, style, form and language are very good.'S Jones, English Teacher, Independent Reviewer
