The library offers knowledge books to support all subjects of the curriculum so it is a good starting point for any revision. Encyclopedias are also great to learn and go deeper in any subject or to check specific points.
The library holds an updated set of Revision guides that cover all NCEA subjects. They are not for loan so that everyone can access them. Please use them here. Each revision guide contains the main points and previous years exam papers. These are also available on the NCEA website here.
The library also holds a selection of books about study skills, how to get organised, how to keep motivated etc.
Come to the library to revise in an inspiring learning environment.
