Electronic format

In order to provide schools with maximum flexibility, each AQA A-Level Sociology Bare Bones Revision Guide can also be purchased in electronic (PDF) format (priced £80.00 + VAT per title). Although all material is copyright, an institution purchasing the electronic version of a Guide receives a site network licence. As this permits distribution of the Guide to all students within the purchasing institution, year after year, it represents outstanding value for money.
