    • You should do as many past paper questions as possible to prepare. Make sure you know your case studies too! I have them summarised as bullet points on the blog so they are easier to learn. Good luck!

        Thanks for your reply,

        also how would you suggest me learning the content and how should i make notes

        finally what book would you strongly recommend.

        thanks for your help (btw this blog is amazing may god reward you :))

      • I like the Oxford AS book with the fish on the front of it and also the Philip Allan book too. If you want everything in brief there is a CPG Edexcel revision book for last minute revision too! This may be useful if you are doing the exam for a second time. Thank you for your nice words – good luck!
