Critical Thinking for A2

A new course book designed specifically for A Level Critical Thinking Units 3 and 4, this title provides comprehensive coverage of OCR’s new specification in Critical Thinking. It follows the well-received publication of “Critical Thinking for AS Level” (units 1 and 2) this September 2005. “Critical Thinking for A2” helps students to prepare fully for the A2 exam and provides teachers with the support they need to teach OCR’s A2 Level Critical Thinking specification. It includes a complete range of topics for both units, clear explanations of all terms needed, reinforced by examples throughout, and carefully structured exercises to help the student develop their understanding.
