    For AS level Geography due to the lack of exam questions and me only having two specimen papers and last year's paper I wanted to buy a workbook, it is a workbook by Hodder Education for AS level Edexcel Geography, anyone who has it how good is it? Are the questions actually good or are they those ones that are just **** easy to do worth only 2-5 marks?

    I hope you're doing OCR because Hodder tend to be associated with them.

    Honestly, it depends what you do with it. Some people buy these things and barely use them, others use them as part of their revision and it works really well. Others use them religiously, run out of time and don't do brilliantly.

    If there are repeated questions from the specimen papers into last years papers then they're already starting to run out of ideas. Have a look at the old (legacy) qualification as well to see how similar the questions actually are. The spec might not have changed a great deal and so the content could be fairly transferable to have a crack at the old papers.

    I am doing Edexcel unfortunately and the spec has changed a lot for past papers to be useful anymore sadly, I am doing 4 topics and the past papers are only useful for just one of the topics. Yes I have looked at the specimen papers and these greedy examiners just keep on coming up with more and more **** questions, basically quite different from the specimen papers. The textbook questions are really good but I am so annoyed as to there are no answers or any kind of mark scheme guidance to help you answer the questions.
