Written by highly experienced authors, examiners and teachers, each title opens with an introductory framework that identifies the relevant key concepts and then follows with a series of short cases that include succinct analysis of the issues raised. In the Using case studies boxes, specific questions are posed and examiner guidance is provided on how the material can be used to tackle them; exercises based on one or more of the case studies are also included.

The concluding section provides more detailed advice on making the most of the case studies in the examination.
