So what’s new?

Refocused AO3 evaluation material helps students better understand how to develop high level evaluation. Points are made clearer using a three-paragraph structure (point, evidence, conclusion) and features have been developed to encourage discussion (counterpoints, and in the Evaluation extra, identifying an argument and counterargument).

Language and reading level has been amended in places to ensure the content is as accessible and readable as possible for all students.

New material has been introduced where some extra detail is required.

Minor changes have been made to reflect AQA’s small specification changes for teaching from September 2019.

End-of-chapter revision summaries, practice questions and MCQs have all been revised and updated to reflect changes in the content page spreads.

Improved page design makes the page layout even clearer and more student-friendly.

Every change made to the Student Books is reflected appropriately in updated Digital Book Bundles, Revision Guides and Flashbooks

For invaluable revision support it combines brilliantly with the 'Pink-hair Girl' 2nd Edition Revision Guide and Flashbook as well as the original (and still completely relevant) Revision App.

See the Digital Book Bundle Year 2 product page  for information.
