Geography

​1WJEC GCSE GEOGRAPHY: MY REVISION NOTES (Crutcher & Sykes, 2017)

ISBN:9781471887406

We highly recommend this book; it is full of clear revision notes and detailed diagrams for GCSE Geography students. It covers all the topics in the current course for the WJEC  Eduqas Geography A exam, and there's also exam style questions, exam tips and  revision activities for students.

​2GEOGRAPHICAL SKILLS AND FIELDWORK FOR WJEC EDUQAS GCSE A (Warren, 2017)

ISBN: 9781471865992

This textbook also comes highly recommended as it explains and breaks down the skills part of the course. There are 5 separate chapters on numerical and statistical skills, cartographic skills, graphical skills, geographical fieldwork skills and OS maps and questions. Each chapter breaks down how to do each skill and then there are activities and exam tips.

​3WJEC GCSE GEOGRAPHY (Brown et al, 2016)

ISBN: 9781471861284

We use a variety of text books and resources in class. This book is a more detailed version of the revision notes above and will support and enhance student knowledge and understanding as well as giving additional preparation for exams. I would recommend the revision notes book above over this one; however, some students might like to widen their knowledge.
