4.0 out of 5 stars A Really Useful Resource for the Student. 28 Nov 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I got this for my 15 Yo son who is studying the book.

I've used York Notes before and they are a decent aid to help your son or daughter get better grades.

It's not a magic wand- they still have to put the work in BUT and this is a big But the guide really is a great help in getting them focused and a reassuring crutch that they are on the right track.
The fact that this was recommended to us by my son's English Teacher is extra evidence that the book has reall value in aiding the understanding of the book and all it's nuances.

There are sample essays and ideas on the themes of the book.

Put simply if you read the book well and understand you will gain better grades so this is a decent purchase in your child's education.

Cheap at 5 times the price.

3.0 out of 5 stars Provides Useful tips but not required. 28 Jun 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It's useful for getting a more clear summary of what went on in the book for revision purposes, however question in exam will ask for your own oppinion of it, so I would not advise quoting from the book itself.

Arivved well on time for a few lessons. Sadly wont be used again unless I have to resit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lets you reach the A*s! 28 May 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book contains everything for every character in a few pages. It allows students (like myself) to be able to broaden their understanding of the book enabling for more effective answers in essay questions on this book as well as chapter summaries. colourful pictures and text add a more modern theme to the book.
Search in this book if your searching for an A*!
