Bought this as rec'd by my daughter's school for her mock and final GCSE exams, this book is so well set out and written, its made her life revising so much easier. This revision guide was a bit more diff. to get hold of, and took longer to arrive, so bear this in mind and don't leave until last minute. But as far the book goes, my 16 year old daughter whole heartedly recommends it, as do all her friends. A must buy for all doing the GCSE AQA Geography exam. A very popular book !

Unlike the other reviewers, I do not think this is the best source of revision for GCSE Geography.

Firstly, the book is short,140 pages, probably because it's a "revision guide". But I do not think it has enough info. on average each topic area only has 10 pages. This is not enough: specially the case studies because they are brief and do not include enough effects and responses for us to gain 8 marks in the exam.

Lets make it clear: this year's exam there's an 8-marker on issues of a reservoir. However with the info supplied by this book there just isn't enough points to comment about in order to score the full 8 marks. If you are doing the exams and not short of time, then I recommend buying other books with more detail.

Another thing I dislike about the book is their lack of organisation. Every page is chaotic and cramped full of diagrams and texts which is randomly placed and lacks any organisation. This just makes reading an eyesore and could be better if they organise the pages clearly.

My last point is that sometimes the information it gives are false. E.G the one child policy prevented 400 million births rather than the quoted 250 million. Compared to other books the understanding of the syllabus is rather...lacking.

Overall it's not a bad book. But I think it's far from best and do not worth 5*

Really pleased with this revision book. Was well laid out and the facts were very clear. Used it along with the school recommended book. The book contained other case studies which was very useful. Would definitely recommend this book.

clearly organised sections giving good information on the topics and helpful case studies.
More information on the exam paper would have been useful as the book is Board Specific

As the title suggests, this book is very informative, my daughter uses it in all her projects. It was value for money and a must for any budding student.

Well documented with examples and case studies and well organised topic by topic. A good guide to have to back up main course text books.
