I chose this book over other AS Level English Language textbooks as it catered for A2 as well, which means I won't need a seperate textbook next year and I can already see what the second year offers. I was expecting a much larger textbook - how could something that takes up so little shelf space help me in my A-Levels? It has, however, helped me a great deal, and I now feel confident that I will achieve high grades for both my AS year and the full A Level.
After buying the book, my English teacher personally recommended it to the class. I, and now the rest of my English class, totally agree that it is the best source for AS English revision. Terms are explained perfectly and various uses of english language are covered. The main thing is though, this book covers the whole course whatever exam board you are entered under. A list is given in the inside cover of what each exam board expects at each level, with page references to the correct material.
You really cannot go wrong with this book. I was overwhelmed by the terms and definitions I was given at the start of term. Since buying the guide, I understand every aspect fully, and am now expecting an A grade in my coursework. If you want to succeed, this is the essential tool to guide you through the two years. I have not come across a better AS level textbook in any subject. Highly recommended.
