The 2nd Editon of Sandra Cleary's 'A Little Bit of Home Economics' is now available! Sandra's latest book includes access to her own 2023 paper walkthrough, outlining her techniques to get an elusive H1. Also included are her handwritten notes on the 2023 paper.

This book has been written to fill a gap in the market for certain areas of the Home Economics Leaving Cert exam that have not been addressed previously in other textbooks. These include Analysis of Tables/Charts on Question 1, Section B and the last part of the same question worth 20 marks that include material unseen by students prior to the exam.

A template is included to help students prepare for these questions. How to maximise marks in short questions on Section A is also dealt with. Together these components can potentially make up to 25% of the overall Home Economics Leaving Cert grade.
