What do teachers have to say about this resource? (4556)
"Very well structured and provides an indepth over view of the BUSS4 Specification in Section B. The author has included appropriate resources which improve the examination technique that the students can gain in this module... the main thing I liked was the exam technique exercises which probe students for their command words / trigger words and get them to examine what the questions is asking... The resource enhances teaching and provides educational value by providing teachers with ready made exercises that can be used to enhance the teaching of the BUSS4 Specification... It is evident that the author has interlinked this into the planning of the resource and has clearly taken into consideration what students need to learn." — O McColgan, Head of Business Studies & Independent Reviewer
"Extremely comprehensive... I like the activities suggestions and extra exam style questions... it is an excellent resource especially for any teachers looking to boost grades... the resource is well written and the author is clearly knowledgeable... The activities are very good and I would definitely use them with my students. The exam papers will be excellent for mocks and general practice... the content of the texts matches with the specification very well." — V Bancroft, Business Studies AST and Independent Reviewer
"An excellent tool to help improve essay technique... easy to follow planing an essay framework... I liked the practice essays questions with loads of links to articles - will save me loads of prep time... The answers being provided are useful for both teachers and pupils." — D Duguid, Head of Business & Independent Reviewer
"Provides practical tips on methods to encourage students to improve their planning and researching skills, which are essential for success in the Unit 4 examination... I really liked the fact that the resource offers explanations and activities, on how essay writing skills can be developed through all of the other AS and A2 units, not just leave teaching this essential techniques until Unit 4. Great links provided to great newspaper articles to save time and provide focus to encourage productive research... I liked the fact that the resource provides a clear writing frame/planning frame. This is essential to keep the students writing in a logical manner and clearly focussed on the key points of the question at all times... I liked the ideas of how to keep the students interested in current business news, as these examples are essential if the students want to gain 'application' marks on the examination... provides several exam essays from all possible sections of the specification for section B. The essay plan on CSR for example was particularly useful and also government influences on business." — S O'Connor, Head of Business Education & Independent Reviewer
"Very well researched... Great and varied mix of activities with up to date case studies... I liked that although it is aimed primarily at Buss4 it covers Buss1-3 as well as building blocks and has a lot of theory integrated within the essay questions and answers and gives a good introduction to how examiners look at marking work e.g. the emphasis on planning and timing considerations. It also encourages student to evaluate throughout their essays and be analytical throughout - these are skills which students struggle with... build upon the students' confidence on how to tackle essays and access the higher grades. It encourages student-centered and individual learning... totally matches the specification - very impressed with the level of cross-referencing." — C McBain, Business Studies Teacher, Examiner and Independent Reviewer
"The resource is full of valuable information that any student who picks this up and reads will surely do well on their exam... I like that the resource breaks down how to answer the question, and gives expert guidance on how the student should break down their answer into a structured and logical way... The resource has lots of potential exam questions within that the students can practice answering in the way suggested by the resource, included with suggested answers the student can then see how well they have done in comparison to the suggested answers... will certainly enhance their understanding of essay writing and what the examiners are expecting to see... includes relevant and specification fitting exam questions for the section." — J Harrison, Business Studies Lecturer, Examiner and Independent Reviewer
