This latest edition of the UK's number one best-selling introduction to sociology for 2nd year A level students is fully revised and updated to fit the AQA A level specification perfectly.
Written by an outstanding author team, it provides everything students need for success in the second year of the course and in the A level exams. The contents are carefully mapped to the AQA A level specification, so you can be sure you are studying exactly what you need to.
The book focuses on the key topics of Beliefs in Society, Crime and Deviance, and Theory and Methods to achieve the depth of coverage required for top grades.
Clear headings and subheadings signpost and organise the content - particularly important for students new to the subject.
The text is accessible to students of all abilities, with key concepts, methods and studies explained in straightforward language pitched at just the right level for second year A level students. The attractive, full-colour design and thought-provoking photos stimulate students' interest and engagement. There are realistic practice exam questions throughout the book, together with detailed guidance on tackling them, plus marked student answers with examiner's commentaries to show what is expected. A separate chapter on preparing for the exams gives detailed examiner's advice and provides practice exams for all three A level papers. Every Topic includes activities for individual and group work to check students' understanding and consolidate and deepen their learning.
The book comes with a comprehensive, free online resource package, including free student workbooks, online activities and schemes of work.
The authors are experienced chief and principal examiners, teachers and authors who have written extensively for AS and A level students and teachers. This book is the companion volume to AQA A Level Sociology Book One by the same authors.
