The Q&A series offer the best preparation for tackling exam questions. Each book includes typical questions, bullet-pointed answer plans and suggested answers, author commentary and illustrative diagrams and flowcharts. This introductory chapter starts by briefly setting out the book’s purpose, which is to give guidance to students on what might be expected in the answers to typical examination questions on the various topics that together constitute the study of public international law. It then considers the types of questions in public international law exams. It also emphasizes the need for students to answer the question that they are asked, rather than embark on an answer to the question they wished they had been asked. Examination questions also require a legal answer albeit with evidence of knowledge of the political and historical environment.
