Several typos, inconsistencies across the book, generalisations and walls of uninspiring texts.
This book cannot justifiably call itself the aid to the OCR course, it is incredibly lacklustre.
I recommend anyone who is studying this to buy it as it contains everything you need to know, and for me I prefer revising out of books so it's a must buy. Another reason to buy the book is that it's made by the actual exam board so they don't miss any information out.
I bought a new book but I don't see a problem with buying a second as some of my classmates bought second hand ones for much cheaper, if you prefer to annotate on the book then I advise a new book (unless the second hand one isn't annotated).
I left it late in deciding I wanted to go to university, so I bought this book to help me catch up, understand the themes and topics and to help me in my exams and I came out of the exam with an A and only 10 marks off of 100%.
Get this book if you're on the course, learn all the themes (self help, federal government help/hinder, turning points), for each topic (Natives, African Americans, Women, Unions), work on your exam technique (how to answer a question) and do a lot of practise essay and essay plans and you will do extremely well in the exam.
Doesn't leave anything out, however, which can at times make this a tedious read.
