5.0 out of 5 stars Better than the textbook :/ 12 Oct 2014
By Ali
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
These notes are both concise, but ironically more detailed in some topics than the Edexcel textbook. I'm finding them incredibly useful, the text layout is wonderfully clear and colorful with example essays. This is probably all you would need to study this unit in addition to class notes.

It's interesting that it is both irreplaceable for learning in a concise and yet detailed way all off the necessary information and how to construct essays- but also how useful it is for testing yourself when coming up to the exam as you can check off each topic as you've revised it.

Each section is color-coded which helps you organize the information in your mind. Really, really good.
