3.0 out of 5 stars Good for certain people... 17 Feb 2012
Format:Paperback
So basically I got this here on Amazon because my school were selling them to us at RRP and recommended to us for GCSE Philosophy and Ethics. I thought I could get it cheaper here, and I was right.

So more about the book.
It's well presented and has all the right information, so I was happy with it for that. This one has lots of information and is very factual.
BUT it is very uniform and not as friendly as some of the CGP revision books and not as motivating to revise with. I prefer the CGP books for motivation and friendliness when trying to get into revising for the first time.
CGP books had things like jokes and ways to remember facts, which some could say is very useful, but others could think of as being a little too childish for a teenager.

This book one is great for if you want to get down to business when revising without any procrastination or fancy ways to remember. It's best for people who can remember blocks of information no problem, but for those who can't, I would recommend the CGP books more.

(Sorry for the long comparison with the CGP books)

>> So if you didn't want to read through all of that, here is the low-down from me: <<

Advantages:
- Good for those who can remember blocks of information
- Well presented
- Good information
- I like the way it's sectioned into the right things to learn

Disadvantages:
- Bad for those who prefer study helps like jokes and mnemonics.
- Not as friendly to revise with

And in case you wanted to know, I got an A in my Philosophy and Ethics exams. I believe that this revision guide was a big help.

This book helped me to revise for my exam. The subjects were clearly set out, and the key points were useful to summarize each page, which made it easier when I went over each topic. The definitions were clearly displayed at the bottom of each page, which meant I didn't have to trawl through to the end of the chapter to look for precise meanings.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but no quotes 3 April 2012
Format:Paperback
Having the fact that quotes are essential having been drilled into my head by my teacher, and having this book recommended by a friend, I was a bit disappointed. There are very few quotes, and it is a little heavy and a bit, well, boring (but I don't really love RS anyway). It is very concise and the views of different denominations were good, and it's quite good otherwise. However no one can find anything on the market, so our whole year is buying them.

This is an excellent book, and great for the price! Got easy good notes inside that are great to help you revise! Questions are throughout the book that will get your mind thinking throughout.
I know that above sounds cheesy and like am a geek, but to be honest i have always hated R.E. but since i found out i need it to graduate from uni i decided to try and this book helped me a great deal!
