    Try the AQA English Language Revision Guide by Harry Smith and the matching workbook. This takes you through each question with examples and exercises. Read lots! Quality newspapers, especially the opinion or comment sections. Look online for the Guardian 'Comment is free' and then use the search option to find a topic that interests you.
    Ask your teacher for the model answers which they can access on the exam board website.
    For the Lit texts there are a lot of study guides out there (apart from the poetry). The JB Priestley Society have a good website with analysis of the play that would impress an examiner. http://www.jbpriestleysociety.com/an-inspector-calls/
    As well as the close textual analysis, you will need to write knowledgeably about the plays and prose, so read about them and see what other people have said before coming to your own conclusions.
