An extensive resource pack of GCSE, AS and A Level revision notes and support materials. There is obviously some over lap as these materials also include the older resources for the legacy A Level but many boards still make use of these materials. The GCSE packs provide guidance for pupils who might be struggling with the more numerical aspects of the course and they have often proven useful as LS materials at a higher level. The pack also includes a couple of revision packs focused upon financial ratios and investment appraisal which A Level pupils should find very useful. They also come with answers and revision mind maps. Overall, a very good value pack for teachers and pupils alike.
