Romeo and Juliet Reading List GCSE and IGCSE English Literature Exam

If you are studying Romeo and Juliet, grab the Leonardo DiCaprio version. It's a fast and furious interpretation that uses modern styles with Shakespearean language. Switch on the subtitles and you'll understand it much more easily. Note that some lines are cut. You may also like the Manga Romeo and Juliet, which also uses the original language (also edited), but with lots, and lots of pictures.

Even if your school has a copy of the play for you to read, I recommend getting your own as you can then write on it. The Cambridge version (below) is the best.
