Carlong English B for CSEC With Study Guide and Exercises is a revision of the very successful CXC English B ? Study Guide & Exercises. While this edition caters to the requirements of the new syllabus, it also retains the strengths and main features of the previous edition.

The book clearly lays out for the students the demands of the syllabus and also helps to develop in them the skills needed to do well in the examination. Key to the building of these skills is the fact that the student is guided into the process involved in analysing poetry, drama and prose.

As a valuable add-on, this new edition is accompanied by an exciting interactive CD-ROM which seeks to further illuminate aspects of the study of literature that students find particularly challenging. This component adds value and excitement to the revision process.
