A Fantastic resource, just what the doctor ordered. The students must know these key concepts and to have a resources already published would save a lot of time. It has credentials being from a publisher I trust. 100% purchase this - saving time.
This resource is very detailed and covered a wide range of content relevant to introducing new classes to the key A Level concepts. It very clearly defines and offers clear examples for the many different concepts and key terms. A well thought through resource!
Successfully tackles a part of exam technique that is often underrated for its importance. The key word glossary addresses the major themes in contemporary geography, with sustainability, globalisation and mitigation spoken about consistently. The ability of students to critically analyse their own responses is very important for them to improve and better understand what an examiner is looking for from a candidate. I really like the systematic approach this resource has. The sequence in which it runs is self-explanatory and does not require much work, meaning the reader can better focus on the points that are being made. [I would purchase] without any hesitation. I think it is a really good idea to help improve technique in examinations.
I love what the resource is trying to do! An excellent transition task for students to bridge the gap between GCSE and A-level ... it serves as a backbone to the course.
