Pre-order Items

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? (7291)
'A really useful resource for students and will work especially well for revision purposes. All the key information is presented in a clear format and contains handy activities to get students thinking about the arguments... The quick quizzes and discussion points in this are great, as are some of the activities listed for students, which will help teachers to come up with ideas for independent work... I think it matches the specification perfectly as all the key arguments and objections are accounted for.'– R Jowett, Philosophy Teacher, Private Tutor & Independent Reviewer
“It was really clear, simple and enjoyable to look at… Information provided is concise and to the point and… it is extremely close to the syllabus in terms of information needed on the arguments, criticisms of them, strengths and weaknesses and their impact.” – A Parker, Teacher, Examiner and Independent Reviewer
What do teachers have to say about this resource? (7292)
'Excellent resource. There is just the right amount of detail to not be too overwhelming for the students. It follows the specification. Some good activities. Theories are explained well... It is well-written and covers all the necessary content. I liked the section on non-human life and death particularly because it is up-to-date and provide a clear overview... and there is some stretch and challenge.'– K Parham, A Level Lecturer & Independent Reviewer
“I thought the resource provided concise information… It was easy to read and… tracks the specification closely and includes everything that is outlined in the syllabus. It even addresses ideas that are not necessarily explicit within the syllabus, but it would be necessary to teach for students to get good grades.” – A Parker, Teacher, Examiner and Independent Reviewer
'An extremely focused resource that covers all the key material and has some great ideas for teachers for activities they can get their students to do in class or for homework... provides a framework for teachers to plan lessons and for students to plan their revision... This resource offers students a systematic description of all the key thinkers and ideas without overly simplifying the material needed to gain a high grade in the subject... I liked that is was clearly broken up into relevant sections and all the information has been laid out in a logical order. I really liked the table in the issues of non-human life and death that looks at how the various theories approach each of the different issues... Another great resource from ZigZag.'– R Jowett, RS Teacher & Independent Reviewer
