I don't study this book but I quickly googled it and there's some revision and analysis on the BBC website http://www.bbc.co.uk/education/guides/z2j72hv/revision and there's also an online study guide on grade saver: http://www.gradesaver.com/the-sign-o...-guide/summary
Hopefully these are somewhat helpful, message me if you want to ask anything

Sign of Four an awful book - gawd help you if you have Jane Eyre or Macbeth.
Find a copy of Jeremy Brett playing the part of Sherlock Holmes in the Sign of Four on TV/You Tube It's about the most accurate adaption, as Mr Brett insisted it stuck to the book.
Read up on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's life, which was fascinating, to help you understand why he wrote it. There are also many SH societies that could help you with more information. The more outside info you gain and put into your essay etc., the higher mark you will get. I could sit here and write for pages but you wont learn anything - I wrote a briefing on him so know a far bit.
And never ever say Sherlock Holmes books are awful, you'll get lynched (only joking), some see him like Shakespeare or Dickens, so beware.
PS Do not watch the current Sherlock series for studying, it is totally different from the books, the Brett ones are best. They are on constant repeat on one of the Freeview channels, so keep a look out there.
Shame I've already passed my Eng Lit I could ace that book!
PS Here's the link for the Jeremy Brett version on You Tube
