Sold in packs of 25, the workbook sets are ideally suited for A level class teachers, and heads of sixth forms or colleges, who want their classes to benefit from the A level mindset and are using The A Level Mindset.Successful students approach their studies with the right behaviours, skills and attitudes: they understand how to learn and revise effectively, they're determined and organised, they give more discretionary effort and they get top results.
