As stated by the above reviewer, this book is an excellent revision tool for anyone studying the CCEA Unit 2 Module on Russia. The book covers, in relative detail, the key aspects of the course which are assessed; by no means does the book cover the history of Russia from 1903 - 41. It simply covers the key areas, or topics, which you will be assessed on in the exam.

The book contains some very good evidence to back up points; unemployment figures, inflation statistics and population figures are among some of the useful statistics which can be used to enrich exam answers. I think this book is best described as something which will help you with your exam technique. It will not cover the area of Russian History under study in sufficient detail by itself.

The examination questions at the end, which are marked by examiners and annotated, provide you with a good idea of what to expect in the exam and how you should go about answering questions. Indeed, I think the strength of this book lies in its presentation of examination technique, and the final section does this succinctly and concisely.

I would strong suggest using this book alongside From Autocracy to Communism: Russia 1894-1941 (Access to History) by Philip Lynch, which will provide you with an excellent grasp on the period of history under study and will prepare you well for the exam.

This guide was quite useful, however I would not recommend this as the sole source of information for those students studying the Russia option. The approach is basic and gives clear detail but I feel that the material on Question 1 covering the 1905 Revolution and problems facing the Tsar before 1914 was not sufficient. The material covering Bolshevik economic policy presented what can be a complex topic in an easily understandable format.

Overall, I liked this book, the exam technique hints and exemplified answers were a particularly useful feature and for the £9.99 price was worth the money. I would still purchase Corin and Fiehn's text on Russia for a more in depth examination, and of course Orlando Figes "A People's Tragedy" is still the superlative account for the engaged A Level student.

I'm currently doing AS History under the CCEA specification and while I can definitely say that all the aspects of the syllabus is covered within the book, and covered to a satisfactory degree, reading the revision guide and making notes on it alone won't get you an A at AS or A Level. My history teacher advised me to get the book but also told me that outside reading is essential to getting a higher grade. The guide does contain a lot of useful information and many quotes from important figures that would look great in an exam answer. Overall the book is definitely worth getting and gives a lot of information for the price but I would suggest getting other books from school or a library to back it up and it is a revision guide, so prior knowledge of the course is essential. Overall 4/5.
