5.0 out of 5 stars essential 16 Aug 2012
By as
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was recommended this by my history teacher as I found our textbooks difficult to use and the format was confusing. This was clearly set out, easy to revise from and contained all the important information and most importantly example answers which I found the most useful. I only used this book in the week before the exam and achieved an A moving from a D in mocks. The best £6.50 spent and a must have for anybody doing 20th century history!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 23 Mar 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is very well organised, full of revision hints and focussed on exam requirements. It's also packed with interesting facts and arresting - often touching - excerpts from primary sources. The author's teaching experience really come through: she knows how to get across the infomation needed in as gripping a way as possible. It'll be invaluable for anyone taking AS, and a good read for everyone else.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for cramming revision! 25 May 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was amazing at helping me cram for my as retake, its small activities where helpful and the information was set out in a really informative and simple way. It would have helped if the book contained more on how to critisize sources as that is the point of the questions for part b but overall great for revision

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for last minute 4 Jun 2013
Format:Paperback
I found this really good for last minute revision and double checking basic facts but it lacks details and doesn't really show many dates - good book but I'd have another for studying definitely - probably hodder education. Overall good to have in the background.
