Pre-order resources will either have a single dispatch date or a date range. Where there is a date range:
  • The earlier date is the best-case scenario – the date by which we aim to dispatch the resource to you, if the resource sails through quality and similar checks.
  • 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? (4885)
"For high grade pupils this is an excellent resource which gives them almost all they need to know about the book. I like much of this resource but in particular the chapter summaries are very thorough. In fact, they are not really summaries in the York notes sense, but rather discussions about the main issues and themes in each chapter. This makes it highly suitable at A level and gets pupils away from the tell the plot temptation. The resource matches the OCR specification very well, providing pupils with a lot of detailed notes about theme, structure and character." A Dean, English Teacher and ind. Reviewer
"It is very comprehensive and would help learners understand the plot and important aspects of the novel. As a study guide, it hits all the right notes. The questions at the end of each section are good for discussion and the essay questions develop learners' thinking. This resource is useful for anyone studying at higher levels regardless of exam board." A Baiden, Engslih Teacher and Ind. Reviewer
