Rating Review
Customer Rating This book is the perfect companion for A-Level studies with chapters on each three modules of the course. The detailed analysis of the set works also consolidates the pieces well. I would definatley recommend it.

Customer Rating very helpful book

Customer Rating This is a must for teachers, as it contains valuable insight into the set works and saves a great deal of preparation time. The A2 students like their own copy too, though I would say that it is necessary to guide them away from some of the detail which is not always necessary.
