2.0 out of 5 stars Make your own notes, 20 May 2010
This review is from: Hamlet: York Notes Advanced (Paperback)
I sat my English exam not longer than a week ago and I am lucky that there were questions for other novels and poetry which I had a better understanding of. I did not understand Hamlet fully and bought this book in attempt to grow my understanding in preparing for this exam. Generally, it is ok for understanding of the context of each scene. However, the analysis which is crutial for any exam is flawed. It gives you irrelevant information about the history about themes and characterisation but never actually explains their significance to the play. If you are sitting English at SQA Higher or A-level, my recommendation is to save your money and do your best to make your own notes as your teacher goes over it. It will help you much more than these notes.
