This book ... is ... informative, helpful and bursting with advice and exam technique. It had individual commentary on all of the poems, then a detailed look at various themes and sample A-grade essays to help you. I would say it is well worth the price and you won't be disappointed with this gem of a revision guide.
This book taught me everything I needed to know for my AS level resit exam. It was perfect and taught me far more than I was able to learn from a year of teaching.
