Sigma's workbook 'AS 1.2 Understanding of Specific Aspects of Studied Text' is best bought before the standard is taught at school and used throughout this time as a classroom and homework resource. Alternatively, the workbook would make an excellent independent study resource in the lead-up to the internal assessment of Achievement Standard 1.2.
Once completed, 'AS 1.2 Understanding of Specific Aspects of Studied Text' provides a useful set of revision notes at assessment time. It can be kept as a reference book if students intend taking a Year 12 English course.
