The variety of individual and pair-work tasks is excellent. The wide range of tasks would effectively prepare pupils for all tasks in the exam. Skills are revisited throughout so that skills are constantly checked, revisited and consolidated. S Freeburn, English Teacher and Independent Reviewer (on Identity Pack for AQA)
