What do teachers say about this resource? (11705)

An excellent resource that covers the specification.

The questions have been contextualised and many different business scenarios have been used which is excellent practice.

A lot of the questions are set using different scenarios but have similar answers which is really helpful, as it reinforces the content several times over.

Many of the questions generate a discussion which is excellent for students who will need to think about both sides of an argument. This is really helpful when answering analysis and evaluation questions on the exam paper.

The content is of a very high quality and would be totally suitable for the target audience which is Level 2 learners and equivalent to GCSE standard.

I would definitely use this for my own teaching. The way I would use it depends on the class size and the ability of the students. If they were a highly motivated class, I would expect the students to work in pairs and ask each other the questions. It could be used on a topic basis, or it could be used randomly so the students choose a certain number of questions at the beginning or end of a lesson. It could also be used as an introduction to a new topic or as revision before a test or an exam.
