Jake Hunton’s Exam Literacy focuses on the latest cognitive research into revision techniques and delivers proven strategies which actually work.
In the light of the recent decision to make all subjects at GCSE linear, so that students will be tested in one-off exams, it will be even more important to prepare students effectively for their exams.
Accordingly, Exam Literacy concentrates on which revision strategies have been proven to work more effectively – e.g. practice testing, interleaving, distributed practice, elaborative interrogation and self-explanation – while also evaluating those which work less effectively, such as rereading, highlighting and summarising.
Uniquely, the book also includes some subject-specific examples based on the new specification content – showing how these proven revision strategies could work alongside subject content.
