3.0 out of 5 stars Its okey I guess
If you have no other books on the media then go ahead but if you do don't bother. This book tells be absolutely nothing i don't already know as a Media student. It tries covering every specification and exam board and thats where I think is its down fall - not enough information.

Basically there are better books out there but its better than having nothing...

This review is from: Revision Express AS and A2 Media Studies (Paperback)
This book is a must buy for those aiming for the high grades in their media A level.
Each topic is spread across usually two pages with examiners hints and media terminology boxes which define key words offering you a wide range of vocabulary to use to gain knowledge and understanding marks in the exam. Each topic is check listed for each exam board telling you which information is is relevant to your exam and at the end of each section there is a research question for you to try yourself. I found the media theories and issues extremely helpful due to there detailed nature which really helped boost my grade since we didn't cover most of them in class. The book covers 3 main areas which cover smaller topics with in that area giving you detailed information which helps with analysing media texts for example the first area is key concepts and consists of : media language, representation. audience, ideology, institution, narrative and genre.I would definitely recommend this book to those aiming for the higher A/B grades since it is easy to follow and helps improve your overall understanding of different media texts.

I personally just disliked the layout and style of this book. Although it does contain everything you will need in preparation of the media exams.

Hi all
I brought this book and wish it was available in my time.
I read it all .It laid out very well and cover all the main topics and extra.
If you want to pass with high grades and better understanding.
Read ,absorb and learn and get the unfair advantage .
It better than the usual media a level text books,I used it in dec 2011 and still has relevant information.it give you great overview and the key terms for the media exam.
Great for teachers as well.
Get it and use it.jj

This review is from: Revision Express AS and A2 Media Studies (Paperback)
I purchased this title as my media teacher advised it, it was agreat value. but the delivery service was shocking. they left the book out in the rain in my garden and did not tell me. A week later I phoned them to see where it was and they said they had left it in an outbuilding. I never got a letter through the letterbox to tell me this so the package was rain damaged!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very nice, 5 Jan 2011
This review is from: Revision Express AS and A2 Media Studies (Paperback)
Wrapped up safely in cardboard when first arrived. The book was in new condition and the correct book hehe. I've yet to have a look at it properly but whilst flicking through it, it looked brilliant.

Thanks!
