This book includes information and tips on how to achieve A's and A stars. It includes: example exam questions, example exam answers and also developed details about the characters and their roles in this story.
It also refers to the author, Steinbeck, because in the exam or in your controlled assessments you will need state why Steinbeck chose these characters, what style of writing he has and how these characters reflect the society then and how it is diiferent from today. These points are all valid and will help you get better grades, so if you want to get good grades then this book will help you on your way!

So far I have found this book to be quite helpful as I am currently revising for my GCSE . The book has a very clear layout, it makes valid points and is easy to understand. As well as this, it includes helpful tips and guidance on how to plan answers, it also includes the assessment objects and example C grade and A* grade essays.
I would recommend this book to people such as myself who have really poor revision notes, but also to others as purchasing this book as it will definitely be worthwhile.
