5.0 out of 5 stars Short and to the point 9 Oct 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Having tried another brand of student support books I really enjoyed this one, it has a much better lay-out and is a lot easier to follow.

The topics are well laid out with all the most important information concisely presented; the key expressions, essential notes and examiners tips highlighted in the margins stand out and are easy to find, these also provide page numbers for related topics making it easy to jump to the right page to find further information.

Extensive exam practice section at the back of the book, with example answers to show what examiners look for.

Certainly worth the Amazon price for an easy to read, revision book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Access course 31 May 2013
By HJ
Format:Paperback
I did an Access to Health and Social Care course to get me into university on a Midwifery course and there were three units on Education, from all the AS and A level sociology books that I bought this one actually provided me with the most and best information in the relevant areas. I think it is a brilliant book, and not too expensive either. Well worth the buy!
