Bare Bones Revision Guides


By paring down the content of the specification to its essentials, each Bare Bones Revision Guide offers students a visually appealing magazine that is perfect for revision.

Written by experienced examiners, Garrett Nagle and Simon Oakes, each guide distils the essential content as clearly and succinctly as possible. The range of headings, case studies and examples, bullet-pointed lists and simple diagrams combines with the careful application of colour to facilitate the revision process and assist recall. This unique presentation coupled with the quality of the notes, which are punctuated throughout with Exam Tips, ensures students benefit fully from their revision time.

The introduction to each guide summarises the specification, exam structure and assessment. The subsequent revision notes include important Exam Tips, providing students with invaluable guidance on what the examiner is looking for and how to gain those vital extra marks that are so commonly missed as a result of an inadequate knowledge of the mark scheme or simply poor technique.

Electronic format

In order to provide schools with maximum flexibility, the Bare Bones Revision Guides can also be purchased in electronic (PDF) format. Although all material is copyright, an institution purchasing the electronic version of the 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.


Titles in the Bare Bones Revision Guide series are sold in sets of five. A ‘set’ contains five copies of the same title.

Postage and packing is charged at £4.95 per order to mainland UK addresses. For orders to non-mainland UK and overseas addresses, please contact our Sales department (Contact).


Electronic versions of the titles are identical to the printed copies but are delivered in PDF format. Each PDF comes with a school-specific licence permitting distribution only to students attending the purchasing institution. The PDFs are delivered via a download link sent to you by email.
