Reviews

...lots of newspaper extracts, large photographs and suggested web links. Its real strength is in exams and coursework preparation - lots of advice and sample answers - and it is the only textbook to include sections for those taking the Entry Level Certificate (old Certificate of Achievement). -- TES 20011101 ..particularly well resourced in terms of pertinent and up-to-date case studies, providing just enough detail to fund good quality answers without overloading the student with information. For those studying the designated specification, this book will be a useful standard text and one which seems to fulfil its aims admirably. -- Geographical Association 20020201
