I love working with CGP material and this book is no exception. I'm a teacher in a school undecided which grade 9-1 exam board we're going to follow for GCSE English Language and Literature so this book was good for to help inform my choices. I don't need CGP material as a parent yet as my biggest is only in Year Two (although there are relevant books available) so this review is from my teaching perspective.
The workbook is split into six sections. The first covers exam basics such as spelling, punctuation and grammar; how to write well; writing extended responses and how to plan. The second, third and fourth sections relate to reading - understanding texts, language and structure; writing - creative and non-fiction. Section five has five sample exam questions from Paper 1 and Paper 2 along with sample answers and a mark scheme. Finally section six is a practice exam paper.
It is clear, well structured and supportive of any student within the 9-1 spectrum. Due to the volume of text those students who have reading difficulties may require additional support. This book links well with New GCSE English Language AQA Revision Guide - for the Grade 9-1 Course
and should you not know which exam board you're following then they also do a generic workbook and revision guide for GCSE English Language & Literature.
Well worth the £5.95 retail price
