The book includes over 200 multiple-choice and extended multiple-choice questions, carefully designed to assess depth of knowledge. At the end of each chapter sample essay questions are provided, along with further guidance, to complement the multiple-choice questions and further test understanding.

This is a good book that provided additional resources to test the students. It would be fantastic to have an additional section before each chapter as a revision guild. Good book though
