In The Press

The new Study and Revise guides are wonderful. Students who used them were able to provide a focused and personal response in their exam questions. Those who used guides from other series covered the points required but responses were more generic: they didn't show the deeper and more thoughtful understanding that students gained from using Study and Revise.
