Not As Exam-Focused As It Might Be...
on 4 July 2005
If you're teaching the AQA Spec B, then this is obviously a book you're going to be buying anyway (possibly in class-sized quantities). However, in common with the sister title for AS, it's not necessarily the very best book for student revision purposes, and despite being as close to an 'official' syllabus-orientated text as you can get, its exercise-&-commentary style often is more skills- than exam-focused. The section on Editorial Writing is essential for students on the course; the other sections are generally okay. The 'Revision Express' AS/A2 book (recently revised) is a better recommendation for most lower ability students, if they're only buying the one revision book, however.
