Book Description

The Concise Revision Course for CSEC® English A provides comprehensive and authoritative guidance to preparing for the Paper 1 and Paper 2 examinations. It adopts a practical, supportive approach to help students build the skills and understanding needed for exam success.

• Organised by question paper, the Concise Revision Course recaps and models the skills needed to answer each question effectively, moving from scaffolded skills-building activities to full examination-style tasks.

• Each chapter in the Paper 1 section includes guidance on where you might go wrong when answering multiple-choice questions.

• Each chapter in the Paper 2 section ends with a full practice question and annotated sample responses to exemplify competent and superior performance.

• A final chapter of practice questions helps you to prepare for your examinations.

“Our Paper 1 books usually consist of revision papers. I have never seen a book that was aimed at supporting the teacher and student in the skills necessary for answering the questions. It would work very well with the books we currently use.”
