This item was recommended by my daughters teacher and was an excellent purchase. Everything laid out in a clear order and made revising straight forward and methodical. Nothing missed and very helpful notes. Thoroughly recommend this guide.

On first sight, this book seems useful, but after revising just the first topic, (the design argument) I realised that this book is full of flaws, inaccuracies, typos and lazy writing. Here are some examples of why its a terrible book (I have only read two topics from it; the design argument and the cosmological argument). In the design argument, it fails to mention design qua purpose and design qua regularity, it fails to mention Aquinas' arrow and archer analogy, it claims that Kant supported the argument, but in truth he gave a famous criticism of the argument - the book fails to mention this and F.R Tennant is not mentioned on relation to the anthropic principle. The appalling lack of content is overshadowed by the some of the stupidity in this book. One of the book's 'exam tips' is to 'use bullet points sparingly' in your essay. You shouldn't use any bullet points in your AS exam essay!

Typos and mistakes litter this book. It made me laugh when the book claimed that Hume's 'Dialogues Concerning Natural Religion' was written in 2006, when in the same sentence it says that Hume lived until 1776. Or when it said that Kant's 'Critique of Pure Reason' was written in 1999, when Kant died in 1804. If someone were to buy this book and solely revise from it without noticing the mistakes, they would fail in the exam, I guarantee. However, there are sparse moments in the book which contain concise, actually relevant information. Therefore if you do buy it, make sure you use another source of revision, too.

The only thing I found it useful for was going through the book and correcting all the mistakes - this was actually quite a helpful revision task.

Some parts were concise and clear, so helpful in my revision for my AS in religious studies. However it claims that Kant was a supported of the design argument, where in fact he was not and fails to give any of his criticisms and just describes how Kant respected the design argument, without mentioning the flaws he saw within the illogical argument as he disagreed with the premises. Also discusses John Polkinghorne for the anthropic principle, with no mention of Tennant who was the one who came up with the phrase anthropic principle. Also no mention of Epicurus for the original formulation of the problem of evil. For Darwin in the design argument section there is also no mention of the fact evolution and his discoveries did not take away Darwin's faith and he read Paley's work and was very interesting. I think this will be a decent revision guide for going over things before my exam, but does not go into great enough depth for an A grade student, I feel it is much more aimed at lower grade students, for example one of the typical mistakes is to write your answers in 'full sentences', which I think is pretty apparent. In general not impressed, not detailed enough for eight pounds when my other revision guides for different subjects that go into much greater depth were at the same price.

Lots of typos (which make it hard to understand key points) also there is little AO2 knowledge. This would be the second biggest waste of money I have spent (the most being when I spent £15 on three glasses of rum). you may as well just use the normal textbook.

This revision guide allows the user to check off each topic as it is covered. It is easy to use, covers all the material needed but is not long winded making it the ideal revision tool.

wouldn't rely on it completely for my only source of information, its a lot of bullet points and summed up points, but overall really helpful and short so its no too much to remember.
