Why buy from World of Books
Our excellent value books literally don't cost the earth
"Hodder is pitching to provide all student needs from the one stable ... Clear and consistent format, style and explanations will be valued by most students ... The Key Cases books almost stand better than mere revision aids, but ultimately their length really makes them just this unless a student does use them as a point to identify issues to follow up elsewhere."
