'A thorough and detailed resource that has been carefully considered... The variety of activities ensures students are engaged, enjoy the learning and cover all the necessary aspects to prepare them for examinations... There is clear explanation of the topics and how they need to be tackled with examples for students to follow - this is particularly useful for less experienced teachers... The more difficult areas, such as context, critical analysis and language are all covered in a variety of ways as well as useful tips on how to revise - this is a useful tool as students are frequently unsure of how to begin revision of this subject... A must have for any KS5 teacher of this text!' M Georgiou, Head of English and Independent Reviewer
