    The CGP revision guide for TKAM is amazing. It adds some humour to some notes just to keep you revising. I literally revised the entire book from content to context and I still haven't forgotten that slavery was abolished in 1865 because of that revision guide! (I recieved an A in the To Kill A Mockingbird exam) So I'd say that's your best shot but I didn't look at any other revision guides so I don't really know which ones are better than others but CGP was great! Hope this helped and good luck with revision and the exam!!

    I used York Notes for all my lit texts, but that was in the days before CGP did guides to books (they only did guides to Shakespeare plays). Based on what I've seen, and the fact that I used all CGP books for the rest of my revision (apart from economics, which they also didn't cover), if I was sitting GCSEs/A levels now I would use CGP.

    I got As in all my lit modules, so I think they served me well. It's all about personal preference, though.
