We bought this book because we are just starting Edexcel IGCSE History and we assumed it would be a useful base to work from. However, we have already chosen our topics from the syllabus - and this book doesn't cover any of our chosen ones so I've had to buy other books. The topics it covers seem to be very random and bear no relation to reach other, and seem to vary enormously in depth of coverage for no apparent reason.

I think it would have been much better to publish separate books (eg, one for the first world war, one for American history etc) and then the whole thing could have been done much more comprehensively. Otherwise, the book should make it much clearer in the title what it covers and what it doesn't. Other than that it seems fairly readable and accessible.

It may be that schools will choose all the subjects from this book to make life easier, but if you are working independently or your school chooses differently, you could end up wasting your money.

This is a useful book - but other topics in the IGCSE syllabus aren't included. What then? Is Edexcel going to publish further books with this content included ? Or are teachers and students expected to make do with their current resources? Only time will tell :-) !!!

Format: Paperback
As this book is written for the new Edexcel IGCSE History specification, first examination this year, 2011 it was important to have details which are relevant, and which also give some hints on how to actually answer the questions in the style the examiners want - especially as there is no past papers to practise on, as it is a brand new spec. This book appears to have what we need as home educators. From what we have read, the detail is good, learned some new things we did not already know historically. Minor pitfalls in the literary element (words in wrong places etc, hence 4 stars instead of 5) but all in all it's good, with plenty of exam hints. Would recommend as a desirable learning tool

This is a very good textbook for anyone teaching or studying the Edexcel IGCSE Syllabus. Source material, both visual and written, has been carefully selected and the various topics are covered in a clear and logical way. My students have found the Exam Know-How sections particularly useful and the activities on each section are both relevant and stimulating. Hopefully the publishers will produce further volumes covering other topics in the syllabus.
