So more about the book.
It's well presented and has all the right information, so I was happy with it for that. This one has lots of information and is very factual.
BUT it is very uniform and not as friendly as some of the CGP revision books and not as motivating to revise with. I prefer the CGP books for motivation and friendliness when trying to get into revising for the first time.
CGP books had things like jokes and ways to remember facts, which some could say is very useful, but others could think of as being a little too childish for a teenager.
This book one is great for if you want to get down to business when revising without any procrastination or fancy ways to remember. It's best for people who can remember blocks of information no problem, but for those who can't, I would recommend the CGP books more.
(Sorry for the long comparison with the CGP books)
>> So if you didn't want to read through all of that, here is the low-down from me: <<
- Good for those who can remember blocks of information
- Well presented
- Good information
- I like the way it's sectioned into the right things to learn
- Bad for those who prefer study helps like jokes and mnemonics.
- Not as friendly to revise with
And in case you wanted to know, I got an A in my Philosophy and Ethics exams. I believe that this revision guide was a big help.
I will say this though, if you are looking for an A or A* and are willing to put the effort in to read the book despite it being relatively difficult to do so, this book is great. The CGP books are slightly too dumbed down to quite give you everything you need for an A* and especially on the essay questions, I often find myself wishing I had used this book to study the respective topic.
In conclusion, buy this book if:
- you are highly motivated
-you are looking for an a or a*
-you paid little attention in class these past few years and want to learn everything now (The extra detail makes it perfect for those learning the content for the first time)
Do not buy if:
-you are only doing this course because your school is making you (It's unlikely you will be motivated enough to use this guide)
-reading long pieces of text, you often lose focus
-you are confident with all of the content and just need a very light refresh
-you made great detailed class notes (If this is you, just buy the CGP guide to complement them, that said, no revision guide will ever be as good as your own well written notes)
Comprehensive coverage , loads of quotes and source material.
Forget all the other books, guys I'm not even joking this book is amazing as it has quotes and it saved my GCSE! Buy it NOW!!!.
Easy to follow
Gets you the A* at the end of the day.
I know that above sounds cheesy and like am a geek, but to be honest i have always hated R.E. but since i found out i need it to graduate from uni i decided to try and this book helped me a great deal!
