This book provides an excellent resource for teachers of the new A Level specification. It is packed full of ideas and activities tied to the texts which appear in the specification and the chapters cover the required elements in a lively and interesting manner. The book covers all of the modules in AS and A2 Literature, with some valuable information about exam technique, how to write an assigment and how to deal with the synoptic unit. It also includes information about which of the Key Skills are being covered in the activities provided.
For students, it is an excellent introduction to the many themes and ideas which you will be introduced to over the next year and is easily accessible. It could also be used as a revision tool in January or June.

I was pleasantly suprised when i got reading this study guide, as it really does contain everything. It's got the People you need to know and what they've said, it explains the different parts of aquistion well and has helped me gain a much better knowledge of the subject. Now I just need to turn it into a good grade!
