Routledge A Level English Guides equip students with the skills they need to explore, evaluate, and enjoy English. Books in the series are built around the various skills specified in the assessment objectives (AOs) for all AS and A2 Level English courses. Focusing on the AOs most relevant to their topic, the books help students to develop their knowledge and abilities through analysis of lively texts and contemporary data. Each book in the series covers a different example of language and literary study, and offers accessible explanations, examples, exercises, a glossary of key terms, and suggested answers. Unlike other series designed for A Level English students, this series has been written by senior examiners in the light of how the new specifications have actually worked out in practice.

Written by an experienced teacher, author and AS and A2 Level examiner, Writing for Assessment is an essential resource for all students of AS and A2 Level English Language, English Literature, and English Language and Literature.
