In consideration of this, the guide is a perfect book for any student of history, with more than enough sophistication and general attractiveness to allow achievement of an A*. Though reputation is commonly an effective means of decision making, in this case, the Ben Walsh guide has outshined the largely popular CGP counterpart in almost every aspect - only a few of which I have named here. Remember, reputation isn't everything, and this situation is a perfect example. What? You're still reading this stupid old review? Go out there are buy it! Go on!
- C. J. Evans, author of 'Black' (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Black-conscience-C-J-Evans-ebook/dp/B00M5LJ846).
Basically a topic is taken, and summarised, in to sections with bullet points and short paragrahs, giving all the important points in a few short paragraphs. Of course, the proof of the pudding will be in August when the results are released, but this book was recommended by her history teacher, so I assume they have proved their value!
.... AUGUST! Results day arrived, and the daughter, gained a B! Well worth it!
It is much better than any other revision guide I have ever used, I thoroughly recommend.
For example, this revision guide states that the Brown v Topeka Board of Education case was in 1952 - when it was actually 1951. An obvious mistake.
Other dates / statistics were conflicting too. Not at all helpful when you're a stressed GCSE student trying to remember all the different facts, and then finding out that some are wrong.
In the end, I barely used this revision guide as I couldn't trust it's accuracy. It confused me by giving me false information.
