In this book are practice questions based on the practice paper published by the Hong Kong Examinations and Assessment Authority, to give students experience of the types of exercises that they will encounter in the exam. Answers to all questions are also provided, along with explanations to help students understand the passage and some of the key literary techniques that shape the text's meaning. Advanced vocabulary from the passages is also listed so that students can re-read the texts, checking that they understand these words and phrases in context.
Overall, this book aims not only to give students the basic skills they need to tackle examination papers, but also to develop their ability to explore works of fiction independently.
