This is a definitive guide to passing your theory test. Quite simply, I was getting fed up of a relative failing their theory test, having gone through the information they had been using. Instead of doing the same thing again I searched and found this book. The way it is structured helped tremendously. By using the tests methodically my relative did indeed pass the test next time around.
While there are no guarantees, this book should help you get the job done first time..

Really nice layout and clear precise questions make this book almost vital for passing your theory test.

By reading through the whole book and making an attempt to answer every question without looking at the answers, you'll notice something that relates to almost every question: common sense. Once you've read the book, you will have gained the confidence to go out with new found knowledge to pass your theory.

However, don't think you'll pass your theory test in one go after reading this book; this book only prepares you for the possible questions you'll be asked in the test, so it's all down to you to remember as much as you can in preparation for the test.

This is what being a safe driver is all about; you need to have full knowledge of what you're doing in order to make the roads safe for you and everyone else.

Good luck on the test.

I was very happy with this purchase. It comes directly from the Driving Standards Agency (DSA) and the questions are exactly the same wording that will come up in your theory test. I was initially apprehensive about forking out for this over the cheaper guides put together by other organisations but I'm glad I found such a good deal on Amazon.

The book is laid out in a very easy format: 14 chapters and a section at the back for case studies. On each page there are about 3 questions and the answer is right beside it, there are also notes above each question telling you how many answers you should pick from the multiple choice options. Underneath each answer is a succinct explanation of WHY the answer is the correct one.

I found this an ideal revision guide because it gave me an understanding of why things should be done in a certain way on the road rather than just what the correct answer is. When I went to test out my knowledge on the DSA theory bank of questions (on DVD), I hardly got any questions wrong because I recognised so many of them and was able to rationalise the answers from when I had gone through the book.

The book makes for every quick and easy reading, I was taken aback by the thickness of the book when it arrived but soon whizzed through it as there are only about 3 questions to a page. There is also lots of repetition with questions being worded in different ways so the information really gets hammered home. I found the information very easy to digest.

I would highly recommend this to anyone studying for their theory test.

This was good for learning, but you also need to have a CD for exam simulation plus all the free tests available online will help.

I bought this book because I was determined to pass my theory test first time round. I recommend reading the Highway Code first, then working your way through the book, As it includes every possible question that could appear on the test, this is really the only way to be fully prepared for the multiple choice part.

The questions are broke down into sections, making it easier to work on areas you know you fall down on, the questions appear with possible answers, the right answer is then printed to the right as well as an explanation of why this answer is the correct one, so it is not merely learning the answers. You are able to understand the theories of driving, and this knowledge is very helpful during practical lessons as well.

I would recommend this to anyone only looking to practice for the multiple choice part of the test, Note however, that it doesn't include any preparation for the Hazard Perception part of the test.

This book is well laid out although can be a bit repetitive for studying for the theory test. The inclusion of the highway code is useful as are the descriptions of the test environment. It should really be used by all drivers on a regular basis to update and remind them of the rules of the road.
