    I'm looking for a revision guide for AS English Language, and wondered which one out of these would be the most useful one for me to get.




    Hellooo... Since no one's replied to you yet, here goes...
    I did English Lit, not Lang, but I did sit in on some A level English Lang classes and, having gone through the 'revision process' for A2 last year, here's what I think you should be looking for in a revision guide:
    -- Which of the two is most similar to the way you've been taught? This may help to reinforce what you've been taught in class and may even have a similar structure to the way your teachers structure their classes (our teachers had course guides in the office and often referenced them for activities to introduce a topic, etc.)
    -- Which is structured in a way that helps you to learn? Do you simply read and re-write in order to revise, or would you prefer images, diagrams, etc?
    -- What does your local bookshop recommend? If you have a Blackwell's bookstore, I find the staff there are often very helpful when it comes to recommendations as they come to know their section's stock very well (I have a friend who works at Blackwell's ) Otherwise, Waterstone's are also very good! :yes:

    Hope this helps you to decide! I definitely think you need to look at the book 'in person' if you will, rather than buy online though :yes: just 'cause it gives you a much clearer idea of what you're getting
