5.0 out of 5 stars Really good 2 Jan 2013
By Sylvia
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It's worth five stars. It is a much easier version and condense of the text books that my daughter uses at school and she found it really useful when she did her mock exams a couple of weeks

5.0 out of 5 stars History in manageable chunks 31 Oct 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
All the relevant facts pared down, no needs to trawl through lengthy texts to gather relevant info as it's all been done for you. Recommended by son's history teacher. Son achieved grade D at end of Y10 with GCSE target set at hopeful B. Used revision guide over the summer to help with work set by teacher in an attempt to improve grade. Half a term into Y11 grade up to a B and target revised to A - a miracle!

4.0 out of 5 stars FANTASTIC BOOK FOR ANY GCSE HISTORY STUDENT! 20 Dec 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Current Year 11 student here! This book is a must have......nothing like other revision guides where there is only minimal information.
This book can easily get you an A if you use it correctly though some less important content on certain topics is missing which makes up the A*.

Definitely get this book! You wont regret it. Better than the CGP books which are soo dull and boring.
