The new A4 York Notes A Level study and revision guide gives the most comprehensive summary of each scene and Act.

You’ll not only revise the play itself but the contexts and critical debates surrounding it.

Using your study guide’s Progress Booster exam section is the best way to target a high grade in your English Literature exam. This section of the Taming of the Shrew study guide shows you the typical features which examiners are looking for in answers to a range of different exam questions at A and AS Level. It will show you how to meet the new Assessment Objectives and write high quality responses, which clearly demonstrate your understanding of the play beyond the plot, characters and key quotations.
