This practical and reassuring guide will ensure your students pass their exams with flying colours. Ace Your Exam establishes a clear, simple framework for revision and helps students get to grips with what exams are all about.

Part 2 helps readers plot an effective revision strategy for an imminent exam and, equally important, a detailed strategy for optimal use of time and productive powers during the exam.
