Reviews

I have been really pleased with the Religion and Life Fifth Edition. It is bright, engaging, and a lot more current than previous editions. The best part by far is the support in answering exam questions - useful in all situations for whichever topic. An excellent resource which the students enjoy using. Emily Clark, Head of Religious Studies, Falinge Park High School, Rochdale We like Religion and Life Fifth Edition because it is written by the Examiner, it focuses on practising exam technique and we find that with the previous editions we have been successful to the tune of achieivng 50% A* grades this year, and 22% A grades. Barbara Usher, Coopers Company & Coborn School, Upminster The new edition of the book is a great source of information and excellent for helping to prepare lessons. The inclusion of exam-type questions on every topic is invaluable, and especially helpful to the non-specialist. The detail in the text is great for challenging the more able student, and the summary boxes continue to provide a good place for the less able student to access the information. Tania Goldsmith, Magnus Church of England School, Nottingham It gives pupils a much broader knowledge base and supports what they already think they know! Sarah Rhodes, Kingstone School, Barnsley This book has been greeted enthusiastically by the department and is proving a great help in structuring the course. The examination advice is particularly welcome as it gives students a clear idea of how to pitch their answers and what is needed to achieve a higher grade. Lesley Walker, Two Trees Sports College, Manchester I have found this resource to be very precise. It covers the curriculum remarkably well and it proves to be an invaluable part of our students

-heartedly. Maria Lubbe, Head of Religious Studies, Dagenham Park Community School This is an attractive book that contains a lot of useful information and support for preparing pupils for the GCSE exam. The CD-ROM that accompanies the Teacher's Resource Book is an added bonus that has helpful, easy to use resources. Mrs C Elliott, Curriculum Leader Religious Studies, Carshalton High School for Girls We use Religion and Life as one our core texts for the Edexcel GCSE Islam unit and have found the material to be engaging and thoughtful. The end of unit exam practise questions are very useful as are the sections on 'how to answer Exam Questions

-Khair Secondary School Your students will love this book, it's got the readability factor! Khalilah Foster, Copleston High School The text is easy to read. The pictures are very 'real

-Fyffe, Broadwater School, Surrey The new edition is very clear and includes excellent images. I like the way the descriptions are clearly separated from the explanations of reasons; this has proved useful for students. Printing specimen questions in the new style at the end of each sub section is also useful teaching and learning material. Lisa Martin, Hillview School for Girls, Kent Stimulating and really gets the students thinking. Craig Hailes, Ounsdale High School, West Midlands
