Reviews

Very useful additional material for my geography class. 5 star Amazon review Every now and then a marvellous resource comes on to the market which re-affirms one's belief in the publishing industry. This is one such resource. Superbly chosen maps and case studies, engaging questions and activities, and production of real quality, make Essential Mapwork Skills a must for any Geography classroom. 5 star Amazon review for Essential Mapwork Skills 1 I have used this book in my geography lessons in the UK and abroad (France). It is an excellent publication full of activities that satisfy the key skills requirements of all GCSE courses and more particularly the iGCSE Cambridge qualification. Purchasing full sets of maps is an expensive business but this book contains extracts throughout to tests students on their ability to interpret relief, height, distance, direction and co-ordinates. It is nice to see that it is not British centred and has international map extracts - again great for iGCSE and as a refresher for IB students - both of whom are required to read and interpret maps other than those produced by OS. All in all, a great buy and well worth the investment. 5 star Amazon review for Essential Mapwork Skills 1
