  • 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? (4939)
Very comprehensive with a clear and consistent structure. A range of case studies, exam questions, revisions activities and springboard tasks gives a very holistic overview...Matches the specification exactly and could be used by pupils or in lessons to ensure they are able to meet the demands of the specification - A Ali, Head of Department and Independent Reviewer
This is a resource I would recommend to every school and student doing geography - I Dambudzo, Teacher, examiner and independent reviewer.
The practice questions given are similar to those seen on the specification and the new SPaG mark has been considered which is important for students to become familiar with. H Cook Head of Department and Independent Reviewer
This would work well as a revision tool, both immediately after studying the topic, and again before any examination...This resource allows the students to really get their teeth into real examples without over-doing the detail. - K Cooper Head of Department and Independent Reviewer
What do teachers have to say about this resource? (4893)
Like: Case studies that aren't the norm e.g. Germany for an ageing population rather than Italy...he range of detail in case studies clearly broken down by the specification criteria Like: The range of detail in case studies clearly broken down by the specification criteria Like: The exam practise with clear guidance on how to gain full marks...Good for schools looking to shake up their lessons and provide something different to a "CGP" guide answer - A Ali Head of Department and Independent Reviewer
'An excellent resource that comprises well selected Case Studies of Population Problems faced by different countries... This is very useful for revision purposes... This is a unique example of how population problems (poverty, unemployment low incomes by expanding economic activities can be alleviated positively. This is what Geography is about.'I Dambudzo, Teacher, Examiner & Independent Reviewer

The exam questions were the best I?ve seen yet with many being ready to just use! - D Wiley Independent Reviewer
Case studies are a difficult element of the course to teach and students often find them the hardest part of the course to revise...The case studies provided are comprehensive and include a lot of specific detail that is essential for students to learn to gain access to the higher levels - H Cook Head of Department and Independent Reviewer
This is a strong resource with a great variety of up to date case studies that encompass the requirements of the syllabus well...This is a good addition to the standard text book and easy for students to use. - M Thum, independent reviewer, examiner, author, and GCSE, teacher.
What do teachers have to say about this resource? (5105)
good practice exam questions which could be used straight away
The practice questions given are similar to those seen on the specification and the new SPaG mark has been considered which is important for students to become familiar with. H Cook Head of Department and Independent Reviewer
I think that this is an extremely useful resource for delivering GCSE case studies. In our school we have found it difficult to teach similar case studies across the department (there are 4 GCSE teachers), so this resource would allow each teacher to have the same background and activities to help deliver the topics...also a happy alternative to help get pupils heads out of textbooks...the variety of questions on offer enables full assessment of students learning and knowledge. - P Cowen Teacher and Independent Reviewer
What do teachers have to say about this resource? (5057)
The specific case study detail contained in the resource is extremely useful and will save time for teachers having to create their own case studies.- H Cook Head of Department and Independent Reviewer
The focus of each case study and the accompanying tiered exam style questions will be particularly useful for students to use at revision time...I liked the keyword boxes that accompany each case study. They take keywords from the specification and give brief, but good, definitions to remind students of their meanings as they read. The links pages are very useful, especially the BBC class clips, Guardian and BBC News links which are specific and direct teachers to particular resources which have been selected because of their relevance. - E JOhns Head of Department and Independent Reviewer
Teachers will find this pack very useful if they are looking for ready-made, detailed and specification-specific case studies for this topic. R Bircher, Independent Reviewer

Good balance of text and different images, including photos and satelitte images that cover the range of images students need to be familiar with for the exam...It provides students with specific case study detail that will help students learn the detail needed to achieve the highest levels.- H Cook Head of Department and Independent Reviewer
The resource was very well written, and covered the specification content very well. I liked the structure to the resource, and the exam style questions at the end of each module...clear up to date case studies have been provided.

"Incredibly comprehensive... I like the fact that there are additional Word document activities to supplement the resource. Some great starters, good activities to aid revision... There is so much material provided here, it is brilliant... The instructions for use are incredibly detailed someone who had never used an IWB before would be able to use it... I like the fact that there are teachers answers... Rocks quiz brilliant end of unit revision great picture, love the fact you can assign flags for different groups, the students will love it.Some really innovative ways of getting students to extend their knowledge pull out tabs, evolutionary ladder, annotating diagrams. Wonderfully presented... Excellent for recapping. Ideas presented clearly good visual learning... Great diagrams, good succinct notes... This looks like a real labour of love amazing." — V Burgess, Head of Geography, SMART User & Independent Reviewer
