What books do you need to study? Is there a minimum number or must you read all the recommended books?

Thanks

It will depend on the exam board and specification you're doing, but it's usually something like one novel, one play, one Shakespeare play and some poems (all picked from the set lists). Normally your school will choose for you and let you know at the start of the course which ones you'll be doing, but if you're self-studying you'd just have to make sure to read the specification carefully and pick texts appropriately. Don't worry though, you definitely don't need to read 6 novels, 6 Shakespeare plays and dozens of poems!

varies between exam boards and specifications, if you're doing gcse english at school then your teachers should tell you which texts to get. if you're taking these exams privately i'd advise going for aqa as they have the most resources.
