OCR coverage is questionable
on 10 June 2012
It is a good book however ...
We bought the book to prepare my son for the GCSE Law with OCR in 2012. When we got to practice-sit the 2010 and 2011 papers (which are provided for free by the exam board) we found that some of the questions in the OCR papers were not covered by the book - which claims, ON THE COVER, to provide complete coverage for OCR and AQA. For example, the 2011 paper 142 had a question about Lord Woolf's reform of the civil justice system - not covered at all!.
What are we to think? Either the author over-claims the merits of the book, or OCR set exam papers that do not follow their own syllabus? Or OCR examiners did not review the book before asserting that it covers OCR? Whichever way, one thing is clear. The book does not give full coverage of the OCR exam.
If you buy this book for general knowledge - fine. But if you buy this book in order to prepare for the OCR exam - highly unrecommended!
