The short answer to the second question
‘How do the TAS study guides complement school?’ is:

TAS study guides act as both a teacher and a learning companion.

Where there are sections of the work in any of your subjects that you don’t understand, the study guides fulfil the role of a teacher because study material has been broken down into simpler explanations, bite-sized notes, individual tasks, memorable visuals and carefully selected exercises with full detailed answers.

When you are revising or studying for a test or exam TAS study guides act as a learning companion because it provides you with comprehensive yet easy-to-understand notes as well as practice exams and answers.

In many ways using TAS study guides is like having 2 (or more) teachers for 1 subject because all the books have been written by a subject expert; in addition to the expert the books are frequently updated by teachers, examiners and subject specialists.

You might be asking: But will TAS study guides work for me?
