No wonder that it is such a success as a core text for English Literature Exams at both GCSE and A-Level. It is part fairy tale, part love story, part detective drama, with elements of the gothic, and a healthy dash of humour. But - and here is the problem for every student sitting more than one exam this summer - it is a long read. ..Even at a brisk pace, it is likely to take 30 hours cover to cover. And, at this stage in your exam preparation, that may well be time you just do not have.This Study Guide is structured so that, if you are unable to re-read the whole novel, you can still master the plot and analyse Dickens' methods with both narrative and characters.

Inside you'll: *Find a thorough breakdown of what happens in each chapter, so that you will understand the flow of the plot.*Discover characters' true (if changing) motivations, you will be able to answer questions about them with confidence.*Learn how good use of quotations defines and strengthens an argument.* Become confident in using the text of qGreat Expectationsq under exam conditions to support your argument.*Be prepared on popular themes and master a strong essay technique .*Use handy reference guides to track the locations and the chapters where each character appears.* This is great value - it has above 175 large pages of insight. Totally comprehensive.Think of it as a series of personal tutor lessons in a book.This book comes with a valuable extra, for which there is no additional charge - buyers of the book are invited to email the author, Gavin Smithers with any additional queries.
