B Armstrong, Teacher & Peer Reviewer

Exposes students to the types of questions they could meet in an exam – including source-based questions – from Bayeux Tapestry close-ups for Paper 2 to Nazi propaganda photographs for Paper 3.

It would enhance learning by providing a variety of exercises

I really liked this resource. It is well designed, very pupil friendly. It covers the entire spec with all relevant knowledge The questions are accessible but bring out the key knowledge required by students. All key examples and case studies are included and the answer sheets are really helpful... this is my favourite ZigZag Education resource I have seen so far.

Students can test themselves at the end of each relevant topic area in precise knowledge based detail. The questions become progressively harder which allows for every child to be successful with the early questions. The mark schemes are detailed and clear... This is an essential resource for the new exam.

A Stevenson, Teacher & Peer Reviewer

The resource is broadly chronological in nature and takes you on a journey throughout this time period. The author clearly knows what needs to be included in this time period. The whole specification is dealt with and with a good range of tasks.

D Taborda, Teacher & Peer Reviewer

I like it. The layout was interesting and the sections were helpful in breaking down large amounts of information. The variation in layouts of the questions makes this a more stimulating resource. Breaking the tests into clear specification sections makes it manageable and less daunting for students, as well as allowing them to focus on particular weak points, or identify those points easily.

What do teachers say about this resource? (8321)

On the whole I liked this resource.

It would enhance learning by providing a variety of exercises so the student does not get bored.

Its educational value would be particularly at the end of the course for revision, or as a diagnostic tool during the course.

Clear and user friendly layout.

It matches the spec thoroughly and interprets it intelligently.
