    Yah, that would be Unit 2, erm, doing tolerance and God and the world. (did empiricism last time i reckon it let me down) Just been teaching myself tolerance from scratch for jan and pretty much gone through the text book making notes. If you got time its probably the best way coz you learn it and have a reference if you forget.

    Ye but the textbook ive got is naff. Misses alot of the key points out completely and just rambles on the authors own arguments rather than telling you the stuff needed to argue yourself

    you mean the AQA AS Philosophy text book? The one with the girl lookin like she's thinking? If so then I agree, but its a good basis. The AS Philosophy by Michael Lacewing is OK for a broad sweep, more of something to read than make notes on. I dunno.

    AQA, coz thats the one with the syllabus, and those guys are marking your exam, Unit 2 is really weird, my teacher says its marked badly compared to the other units,
    I would advise you study the mark scheme and literally try to "beat the exam" by applying information when needed and "Assessing" for example, in the part (b) questions the mark scheme gives a total of 18 marks (its out of 15 so more than half your marks) for analysis, and counter arguments. Knowledge and understanding is about 5 marks. It's a bit weird.
