Fine for the basics-Definitely won't get you an A like it says!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A-Level Notes on Graham Greene's Brighton Rock (Paperback)
I ordered this "study guide" for my AS level English literature exam. Unfortunately, it was only good for making you think about what Greene has written instead of telling you. I ordered this because it looked like something that could help me due to the poor teaching in the english department in my sixth form, but it didn't really do the job for the edexcel exam. This guide won't get you an A like it says! There were a lot of spelling mistakes such as "Darrow" not "Dallow" and it was really off putting, along with the general poor sentence structure. When I ordered this, a friend of mine also bought it and she got a completely different product to the one I had. She had an extra 50 pages added to her version and I felt like I was disadvantaged. I wouldn't have paid the price for this guide if I knew what it was going to be like. Personal opinion: Buy a second hand one. You will only write in it and make notes in it, if that. There were some "ok"practice essay questions in the guide, but they had all come up on past exam papers. It would have been nice to have been given some different and obscure questions that could come up in the future. For example this years edexcel question was "How Greene created suspense in the novel". I and others were definitely not expecting a question like that. This product didn't really do the job for me, and I feel let down by it. And I'm sad to say that I am feeling very negative about getting my English result in August after the exam went terribly due to the lack of knowledge that I was hoping to get from this guide. I will be putting mine back on here to trade in. I won't be needing this guide any longer because I won't be carrying on to A2.
