Yes, it quite good. I wouldn’t say it was excellent, but I would say it was extremely helpful.

it’s a thin A4 book, 56 pages

It’s got 6 parts

part 1: Intro (study and revision advice, introducing of mice and men)

part 2: Plot and action (plot summary, sections 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6)

Part 3: characters (slim, george, lennie, candy, curley, curley's wife, crooks, minor characters)

part 4: key contexts and themes (key contexts, key themes)

part 5: language and structure (language, structure)

part 6: grade booster (understanding the question, planning your answer, how to use quotations, sitting the exam, controlled assesments, improve your grade, annotated sample answers, further questions)

 

it is a useful book, i am glad i bought it. its got examiners tip and grade boosting ideas in the margins.

so yeah, i would recommend it!
