Advantages of Primary Data

Hey guys! Just thought I'd share this resource with you...

I do already have a similar resource called 'Evaluating Primary Data'...but I've got my GCSE in a few days and am panicking (aren't we all :) so I decided to make ANOTHER advantage/disadvantage sheet! :|

Hope it helps!
