Pre-order Items

Pre-order resources will either have a single dispatch date or a date range. Where there is a date range:
  • The earlier date is the best-case scenario – the date by which we aim to dispatch the resource to you, if the resource sails through quality and similar checks.
  • The later date is given to indicate the latest date by which you should expect the resource to be dispatched.

These dispatch dates may occasionally be moved back, in which case we will notify you. Conversely, publications are often delivered earlier than the dates shown.

"A clear and concise exemplification of the 2012 Specs for R001 to prepare a student adequately to sit an external examination...The resource is well thought out and presented logically. It certainly will replace any existing text books out there and has the latest information for students to access...The diagrams to illustrate topics/sub-topics and the explanations which follow are good for students to see pictorially what is being said in the descriptions...Students can see content and images that relate to the topics undertaken; certainly visual effects captures interest and stimulates learning. external examination...it is a comprehensive document that serves as a good guide for students to learn about the aspects of Unit R001." - P Ramnarain, Head of ICT, Independent Reviewer

"A well-thought-out tool that will greatly enhance the teaching and learning experience...It is extremely intuitive the way the text systematically follows the official specification and works through the LO in chronological order. This will be very useful as it will make it easier to ensure that all areas are covered...A very useful resource that will save a considerable amount of time and effort." - A Akuffo-Kelly, Head of ICT, Independent Reviewer

The way each LO is broken into sections with accompanying tasks really shows how this guide can be used as an independent study tool for pupils or as a course guide for staff and students alike...I like the layout. It is clean, crisp and professional...The guide provides great detailed guidance with practical tasks for pupils to complete this LO...The guidance provided is very good enabling pupils to independently carry out tasks and the guidance is simple enough for pupils to follow...The assignment and exam practice at the end of the resource is fantastic is providing an opportunity for pupils to get used to assessment of this kind." - G Singh, Nationals Teacher, Independent Reviewer
What do teachers have to say about this resource? (4919)
"The resource was organised in a logical order and also makes good use of colour, headings, sub headings and contained a range of end of topic questions to help re-enforce learning. The author has managed to create a high quality resource that deals with spreadsheets in general for unit R003, rather than concentrating on a particular spreadsheet software application." P Chapman, Head of ICT, independent reviewer
"A useful study guide...It enhances learning by reinforcing the learning outcomes with questions and answers...I like the fact that the resource comes with data sets for the students to use. This ensures that students do not have to waste time creating these themselves...I think that the resource matches the specification quite closely and covers the sections of each learning objective." - R Wilson, ICT Teacher, Independent Reviewer
"Extremely well laid out, the table of content at the start links well to each appropriate page...It does demonstrate a good grounding of the assessment criteria, but also contextualises the usage of formatting options (good demonstrate with the data bars). Overall impressed with the resource." - L Price, ICT Teacher, Independent Reviewer
"I cannot fault this resource. It is presented in the most logical and systematic manner befitting a resource of this nature. The presentation and layout is excellent...Every Learning Outcome (LO) is covered with all the relevant sub-headings for each, giving the learner good guidance as to expectations within each LO...Students can relate to content by seeing relevant images [which] capture interest and stimulate learning. This will certainly serve as useful revision material for students." - P Ramnaraain, ICT Subject Leader, Independent Reviewer

"A useful resource for students to use when completing R006...Clearly matches the LOs for the unit." - J Knox, ICT teacher, independent reviewer
"The resource is really good at addressing the LO's. The resource takes you through the full specification brief from explaining a client brief to the different digital imaging told that could be used to create digital images. The resource provides the full detailing for students to get a distinction in the unit...I like the amount of detailing in the resource. It provides apt detailing for students to get the highest marks possible. The consolidation exercise at the end allows students to understand and apply the knowledge they have learned in the unit so far."
