  • This is a very chunky (468 pages) revision guide. I love the way this guide is laid out. Each topic has a couple of pages titled 'Knowledge'. In this section, you get a brief overview of the topic and there are plenty of illustrations and flowcharts to help you revise. You then get a couple of pages titled 'Retrieval' and these contain practice questions and answers as well as some practical tests. Finally, there are a few pages of exam-style questions. I really like this layout because it makes it easy to revise just one topic from start to finish if you only have limited time. You also don't need to work through the topics in order. There are tips and advice scattered throughout the book. - Amazon review
  • This is so much more than a revision guide. If you're looking for some simple last minute revision then this isn't going to help as this book is dedicated to those who revise throughout the course and regularly revisit forgotten stuff. In depth full coverage of the combined AQA spec. Excellent illustrations. Great questions and sample answers. Ideal for students and teachers. Highly recommended. - Amazon review
