This book is written by the chief examiner and is absolutley brilliant for getting that exam techniquie just right. The book goes through sample answers and explains what is needed to improve the answers so that they can upgraded. The book goes through the terms that the examiner will use in the question and how words like "explain" "describe" and "evaluate" should affect the answer that you give. There are also practice questions that you can do and they are laid out exactly how they will be in the exam. Of course this book is only part of what you need but it is a great little book for sharpening up exam technique and as it is written by the chief examiner it really is handing the exam to you on a plate. Also it is possible to get full marks on the exam (Beacuse I did) so I would recommend this book to anyone who thinks that their technique in exams could do with a little improving and also to anyone who has difficulty with the words that tell you what to do in the exam such as "describe" etc.

2.0 out of 5 stars Sociology- not what I expected 15 Jan 2011
I'm going to give a completely truthful review. When I bought it was seriously expecting a normal sized book that would show practice answers, so I would know how to get a A. Not only did it come later than it said it would, but the book is not only tiny, but by answers it provides 1 mark questions and answers. So my advice would be if u want to revise AS don't get this book bcos it doesn't have much on topics and especially don't get it if u want some sample answers. Don't be conned!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good place to start 31 Mar 2010
This book provides a good starting place for basic sociological information, however when refering to empirical research it fails to provide dates making it impossible to cite studies in essays.

4.0 out of 5 stars So helpful! 10 Jun 2010
I was really struggling with my first sociology exam in my first year of a levels, and I didn't really get it at all. This book really helped (along with some seriously hard studying ;) ) me to understand the basic concepts, it's got everything I needed (and some surplus, but it does cater for other exam specifications I suppose) and all the information is in there in small chunks with no waffle.
And plus, it's quite small so I could take it with me on the bus and do some sneaky studying :)
