It is recommended to deepen all that you learn in 1 ère ES and Terminal ES. If you have more knowledge, and better methods, thanks to courses that you have taken in another medium than high school, it will increase your chances of passing the exam.

You can choose specific books by looking at each point of the program proposed by Sciences Po Paris for the sex exam. In bookstores, you will find a multitude of books that address these aspects, and the best one will be the one that suits you best.
