Format: Paperback
I bought these notes to help me revise for my GCSE English Literature exam at the end of May. I had looked at the reviews, and overall they seemed pretty good - so I went ahead and bought the book.

When it arrived I was pleasantly surprised at how good it actually was. There was an introduction to the book, and to Harper Lee herself. The first few pages had lots of useful information, along with a map of Maycomb which I found to be very helpful.

The next section was then divided into chapters, with a double-page spread for two or three chapters. There was a summary of the plot on these pages, with the main points to remember. There is then a section which explains why Harper Lee put these scenes in the plot, and finally on the opposite page, in-depth knowledge about the main scene/character in these few chapters.

Section three in this book was all about themes, and once again I found this section to be very helpful. It provided lots of in-depth detail necessary to do well in an English Literature examination.

There was also a section on the main characters, along with quotes and a summary of what happens to them throughout the novel.

Overall I would recommend this book to everyone wanting to pass their English Literature exam. It is a great book, with lots of detail and useful vocabularly. It tells you what you need to be writing to get a C grade, and what needs to be written to get an A grade. A great book overall.

I found York Notes to be a great aid for my GCSE English Literature exam. The presentation is clear, it has notes on themes, language, characters etc as well as chapter-by-chapter commentaries. Personally, I preferred the Letts notes over this one, but that is probably due to personal preference and this is definitely worth buying.

Format: Paperback
I am sitting the GCSE AQA 2010 English Literature Course and this is one of the available options. I ordered this book as they are known to aid the reader through the analysis. I was a bit disappointed when I bought the book as it was quite basic. It seemed to be quite childish, focusing on aesthetics and colour as oppose to content. The book itself is good at aiding your revision and gives a general overview but not specific analysis. York Notes Advanced are much more appropriate as they are designed for A- level but are great, even for GCSE. Though there is not an advanced version for this book... so this will have to do!

Generally: 3 Stars(It'll do the job... just)
Aesthetics: Nice
Content: Fairly basic but good for a general overview.

I am a GCSE Student who used this excellent revision guide for my English Literature Exam, and it was an invaluable tool in guaranteeing a thorough understanding of the text and poise in the exam room.
The Chapter Summaries ensure a clear and coherent understanding of the story is maintainted, and the book is further broken down into Character Descriptions and comments on the key themes to ensure nothing is missed out

I discovered this gem whilst searching for a revison aid for the excellent novel by Harper Lee, and when compared to the mediocre Letts Explore guide, the York Notes version outshined it in every way! Detailed Chapter Summaries save crucial time before the exam, and there are some excellent sections on how to improve your grade and the themes that are reiterated throughout the novel. This book certainly improved my grade as i recieved an "A" in the Mock Exam as a result of the superb notes in this book. The only downside is that there is an absence of a page for specific quotations but this encourages you to test what you have understood in the book and develop a personal opinion of your own which is crucial for examination success. Highly recommended!

I found this book extremely useful for my son during his GCSE's, as it clearly explains each different part of the story, with graphical illustrations. Highly recommended.

I bought this for my daughter (year 11) after reading the reviews already on Amazon. My daughter is very pleased with the book and has found the different sections very helpful in filling in areas not covered in lessons. Time will tell, obviously, but I think this was a worthwhile investment.

This book was quite useful as it highlighted key themes and explained why certain chapters are important. Also for some, it is quite a hard book and this easy breakdown of the story made it much easier to understand.
