    What level are you studying?

    If it's GCSE, BBC Bitesize has a page for it:

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/education/guides/z2j72hv/revision

    There are some study guides you can buy cheaply, too, for different levels. Check Amazon. York Notes have a new edition out for the new GCSE, as well.

    In general, yes. The only drawback is that its coverage of texts is not as comprehensive compared to a dedicated study guide, which is understandable.

    It's excellent as a starting point, though, with examples of close reading, some general analysis and suggestions of interesting topics and themes to explore.

    It also provides feedback on sample answers and links them to the exam boards's assessment objectives.
