    Do u reckon its worth it learning all the poems or episodes of a prescribed text?

    I spoke to the advice line, they said its very likely that it will ask for a specific text in module B coz the questions are all allocated to one specific prescribed text, but with module C its less likely coz u also have ur related texts so yh :o

    Do u reckon its worth it learning all the poems or episodes of a prescribed text?

    Does ne1 think its worth it preparing all episodes or poems of a prescribed text for the modules paper? I'm doing Harwood and Frontline and its such a bitch to remember points for everything just in case the question asks u to refer to a specific poem/episode. Do u think it's worth it???
