These workbooks have been prepared by a BHS examiner as revision aids for students who are about to take their BHS stages one and two examinations. Working through the syllabus for both examinations typical questions are asked by means of text, line illustrations and photographs on all relevant subjects. There is space for the student to write down the answers and the correct answers are given at the end of the book. Each book includes a chapter of dos and don'ts and sound advice on dress and examination technique. These books are designed as companions for "The Course Companion to BHS Stage One", and "The Course Companion for BHS Stage Two" and the audiotape revision aids to both examinations, all by Maxine Cave and published by J.A. Allen.
