Praise for the second edition: 'An excellent core text ! it covers the specification brilliantly and I like the question and sample answers' section.' Sarah Sawyer, Head of Psychology, St Augustine's Catholic College '! I came out with a high A grade which I honestly didn't expect, and which is the result of studying your excellent book ! [It] was clear, explained everything in a way in which I could understand, and somehow many facts and quotes just stuck in my head! the book was just a pleasure to study from ! ' Judy, a student from Liverpool

Each chapter contains sufficient information to get any student a decent grade if they learn everything in the relevant chapters thoroughly, although more able students might wish the book went into more depth in certain areas. If you are one of these, then buy this and supplement with text books recommended by your teacher.
The book is very clearly written for a 16-19 audience and also contains research, examples and suggestions for activities and research that are much more up to date than any other text book on the market.
There are practice exam questions at the end of each chapter section.
The book is not suitable for someone wanting a general introduction to sociology, or for someone looking for a general interest read. For this try Thinking Sociologically by Bauman or the degree level intro. texts by either Giddens or Fulcher and Scott.
If you are an A level student, buy this!
Instead, I would recommend the Succeed at AS Sociology: The Complete Revision Guide, for the AQA Specification by Rob Webb. I can see that majority of the reviews are positive, but trust me, being a student with no previous knowledge of Sociology; this book is not the one!! #TeamRobWebb
With that said, this book has really helped me so far and I'm only 3 weeks in! thoroughly recommend
