3.0 out of 5 stars Not Quite the Complete Course 18 Aug 2009
This book was passed to me to assess for the new A2 course that we are teaching. My head of sixth form thought from the title it had everything in, but there are topics missing, so don't judge this book by it's title. I still gave it three stars because the content it does have is good, and if the missing topics had been included to the same standard it would have been a definite purchase.

1.0 out of 5 stars Really not complete 6 Sep 2013
By Flanks
This book is extremely disappointing. It is named 'the complete course', however it includes only 1 of the 4 possible topics for SCLY3. While it appears to deliver that one topic very well, it is certainly not the book I thought I was ordering and it is not the book it's title seems to suggest. The publisher comment that it 'fits the specification exactly' is at best misleading, at worst deliberately so.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not exactly "the complete course" 3 Nov 2011
By B_Eizel
What bugs me about this is that it isn't the complete all. Granted in my lessons we are taught the extra but saying it's the complete course and then not being's annoying.

I find myself having to highlight the book though because the sociologists names don't stand out and it's easy to read but hard (for me personally) to revise from because it's just text and there aren't any coloured key words or sociologists (for example) that catch your eye.

Otherwise, it's perfectly fine and provides you with the basics of what you need to know.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! 27 Jan 2011
By Zak
Bargain! but the best textbook you could purchase for A2 Sociology. Has everything you need for the exam, since I purchased it and started revising it, it's made a change and built my confidence for the exam. It's a must have for Sociology students.
