Review quote

They are fantastic and the best on the market for the course. Nothing else comes close as it is neither too dense nor too scant. Amy Hawkes (HOD) at Myton School This really is the essential textbook for A2 year Geography. It is absolutely fantastic for case studies - covering a large range. It seems quite expensive but over 400 pages long plus a glossary, which is great for proper definitions, and an easy-to-use index I use it more as a revision guide but it covers absolutely everything you need to know, which gives you a lot of confidence and puts you on the right track for revision.
