Needs a revamp
on 17 May 2014
I have to agree with other reviewers. The book is a pretty comprehensive guide to things that trainee journalists need to know but it is not user friendly. It needs to be updated and the language and many of the long winded explanations could do with revision for today's students.
It might be good if each chapter began with the nuts and bolts of a particular topic (the vital info they need in journalism and must know to pass nctj exam) and then went on to give more detailed information that some readers might want to read.
Students find their PA exam a real challenge and sadly this book doesn't offer them a lot of help.
