Product Description

Review

"These books are brilliant! The Q & As sound so similar to our real exam questions.. I would definitely recommend these to all students on the LLB and also for students refreshing their knowledge for the LPC"

NEW GRADUATE JUST ABOUT TO START LPC

"What a relief! A book I can understand quickly.. I’ll be using these this year"

SECOND YEAR UNDERGRADUATE

"This is an excellent series, which hits the target at a remarkable number of levels. The clarity of its reference points makes it ideal for students new to undergraduate study, while at the same time being the perfect ‘refresher’ book for students about to start on professional courses. More than that, the series is great as a ‘starter pack’ for non-specialist students covering elements of law as part of their wider studies, and invaluable for teaching international students studying the English common law from abroad."

Format: Kindle Edition
This is an excellent revision aid. The examination advice is clear and effective. The book covers all the main offences and defences. It is split into chapters dealing with general principles, offences against the person (murder, manslaughter and non-fatal including sexual offences);the defences; conspiracy, attempt, secondary parties and offences against property (theft, fraud, burglary, blackmail, criminal damage and more). I am sure that I would not have done as well as I did in my Criminal Law exam without it. Highly recommended.

I don't understand Theo's comment below. I have the book and it contains several questions about Sexual Offences. Also the mistake in the date of the Offences against the Person Act is clearly a single instance 'typo' as all the other references to the statute in the book accurately date it as 1861.

Format: Paperback
This is really not a good means to learn Criminal Law - at best it's 'basic'. It misses out sexual offences entirely and it's littered with niggling errors. For example on Page 2 it claims that the Offences Against The Person Act was enacted in 1961. A further problem is that although it offers you a suggestion on how to write essays and problems - at my university we have been advised to do them in a completely different way.

If you do use this book, do so with caution and don't accept it as high authority in the way you would Smith and Hogan - check anything that looks suspect, because in likelihood it probably is.

This book covers English Law and is not for American students. 5 April 2013
By Marc A. Mcclain - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My Criminal Law professor stated that we should check out the "Q & A" book for this subject to prepare for a multiple choice section of the final exam. Although I had heard of Lexis' Q&A series, this book came up in my basic Amazon search. I had never heard of Routledge before but it looked decent and hey, I want every advantage I can get. Nowhere on the book does it say it is for English law or students. I started to get suspicious when I noticed words were spelled a little differently like "Offence" or "Defence". In addition, there were quite a few "British" sounding words in the first few paragraphs. It finally dawned on me that this book just wasn't or me. It's a shame too as it looks to be a quality book. I only give the 3 stars as a warning to others. I wish there was a way to separate the quality review from any other type of issue. If you're an American student, move along, mind the gap, and avoid the queue to get this book.
