Revision Notes - Financial Ratios (Eduqas)

Revision Notes - Financial Ratios (Eduqas)

A spin-off range of revision guides that focus on individual topic areas for most A Level Business specifications but specifically for Eduqas. These guides are designed to help students boost their knowledge and understanding of specific areas of the course and when printed provide a colourful and accessible resource. Whilst primarily aimed at students, teachers have access to the associated PowerPoint materials and hand out for an additional 50p. These contain additional practice questions, solutions and video links. New topic areas will be added in due course but any feedback would be most useful.
