Have you done Classical Civilisation?Watch
For example, good books to read and things to do to get ready, what the course is about and your personal experiences?
-Greek gods/sacrifice and beliefs (this includes the story of the Minotaur)
-Sparta and the upbringing of boys in a Spartan society
-Alexander the Great
I would suggest reading the Odyssey outside of class, as it's a well known Homer.
Also 'Sophie's World' is a great book, it is the history of Philosophy.
If you enjoy the Sophie's World, I would give Plato's symposium a read.
Hope this helped!

The Metamorphosis by Ovid or Hesiod's Theogony cover Greek and Roman mythology, in case you're having trouble with any references that come up, but that might be overkill.
I found it one of the more interesting A Levels, although that's probably just personal preference. Based on my classmates' reactions to it, I think it's a lot more engrossing that people initially expect (lots of people who chose it as a fourth AS Level and planned to drop it for A Levels changed their minds and carried on, and one of them even considered doing a degree in it)
I have, well my first year, I am hoping to go on to A2 depending on results! As for reading any good books, I would say look at what your school/college course and seeing what books are on their spec. I was with AQA so I studied 3 comic plays by Aristophanes and one epic, The Iliad by Homer. If you want to ask any questions though I'd be happy to answer them!
how did you revise for this, I'm doing the exact same books and my exams tomorrow!
For the Iliad, creating character summaries and characteristics, plot overview to make sure you know what happens in each book. Themes, so war, honour, rage, women, fate and divine intervention ect.
Of course this is just what I found useful. I wish you the best of luck with your exam!!
