As the co-author of Heinemann's OCR GCSE Medicine text book, I would like to send my congratulations to the authors of the Hodder publication. Activities are engaging and accessible and the book is very pleasing visually. It is heartening to see a number of newer sources and the approach to exam preparation through 'Exam Busters'. I believe both books need to be used by schools if they want complete coverage of all units in the specification. This book will be a welcome addition to the stock of history departments across Britain. Bill Marriott, a senior examiner with a major awarding body I absolutely love this book. I was fortunate to receive a copy as soon as it was published and I am really glad I did. The graphics are great and engaging, the lay out is clear and logical. The exam technique advice is very student friendly and the way in which the activities reflect 'active learning
