Absolutely excellent, truly a very comprehensive guide to the text. A teacher could just use this resource and would not need any other study guides or information... The resource matches the specification perfectly. I am full of admiration for the author, who has clearly spent a great deal of time ensuring all the AOs are covered in meticulous detail... This is one of the best resources I have ever seen for any text.
