Praise for Nutshells revision guides:
 “Helped me to grasp many concepts and ideas before reading my textbook, which made it much easier to understand. The simple language and explanations make for a welcome change from the typical "wordy" textbook, helping you to maintain interest rather than it being lost in continual confusion. ”

“Excellent for preparing for tutorials and solving problem questions. Well-written, well-structured and succinct… This book was invaluable to me when it came to revision (as were all the Nutshell books). Highly recommend.”
